Strings and Things Ltd. acquire The String Zone Ltd.


Guitar accessories distributor and MIA Memer Strings and Things Ltd has acquired The String Zone Ltd, the online orchestral string and accessory retailer. The String Zone owner Andrew Riley will continue to manage the business with his team over the next few months from its location in Egham, Surrey before retiring later this year…

Steve Bradley, Strings and Things MD said  ‘We currently distribute a limited number of orchestral strings and acquiring the leading online retailer in this area seemed a like natural addition to our business. Andrew has built up a thriving business  from a traditional violin shop, first offering violin strings and accessories online in 2004 into a business that now processes large numbers of orders on a daily basis. We intend the business to continue its focus on Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass string sales as well as offering services such as its popular bow approval scheme.’

 Andrew Riley said ‘Having taken the decision to retire last year, I’m pleased to be able to sell to a buyer from our industry with a good reputation. I know they will continue to provide our loyal customers with excellent customer service and they have given our staff the opportunity to stay on in the business. I wish Strings and Things every success in operating The String Zone’.
