Drew Estate & Royal Agio Cigars formally announce the opening of the Royal Agio Cigars U.S.A. headquarters in Bradenton, Florida. The two companies joined forces globally on April 1, 2014 with Drew Estate distributing Royal Agio Cigars’ products in the United States, and Royal Agio distributing Drew Estate products in key European markets, such as Holland, France, Belgium and Germany. As part of Royal Agio Cigars’ strengthening commitment to the U.S. market and related establishment of their new U.S. headquarters, Drew Estate & Royal Agio Cigars will officially end the U.S. distribution agreement on December 18, 2017. The existing, successful distribution partnership in Europe will continue uninterrupted.
As of December 18th, Royal Agio Cigars U.S.A. will directly manage all U.S. corporate functions, including distribution, sales and marketing from the Bradenton office for its key handmade (Balmoral Anejo XO) and premium cigarillo (Panter and Mehari’s) brands.
George Margioukla, President of Royal Agio U.S.A., commented, “Since the official commencement of the U.S. distribution partnership between Royal Agio Cigars and Drew Estate on April 1, 2014, we have been honored to be part of the Drew Estate family. We are grateful for the enthusiastic support and significant contributions made on behalf of the Drew Estate organization that have helped improve distribution and awareness for our premium cigar brands over the past three and a half years. Thanks in large part to these efforts, Royal Agio Cigars is now in a position to strengthen our U.S. presence and enhance direct support for our highly-valued trade partners and consumers.”
“On behalf of the entire Drew Estate team, we congratulate Royal Agio and the Wintermans Family on this historic milestone in the company’s history. We are thankful to be a part of it and excited to continue to work together in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Luxemburg, Austria, Italy and Lithuania. Our partnership has been crucial in many strategic focus areas in our company histories and it stands the test of time and change. Congratulations!” noted Glenn C. Wolfson, CEO of Drew Estate.
