New owner for Rikaro
After careful consideration and planning, Double Z Enterprises has decided to sell Rikaro.
Effective 2 October 2023, Rikaro Global has taken over as the new owner of the Melbourne based wholesaler.
Rikaro co-founder, Richard Zallmann, believes that the acquisition, which took about four months to complete, is a positive step forward for both the company and its partners.
“Mr Desai and his team at Rikaro Global come with a wealth of business experience and are committed to upholding the same high standards of product quality and customer service the Rikaro brand stands for and customers enjoy and expect,” he explains.
“We are pleased to reassure our partners that Robert, myself and the wider Rikaro team are staying onboard. The new owners are eager to build upon the existing relationships with our valued suppliers and we are committed to facilitating these partnerships.”
From a customer’s perspective contact details remain the same as well as the ordering process and procedure, while in terms of product ranges Rikaro, BONPARI by Rikaro and Allen Designs will continue with extended product offer plus more ranges will be added from new suppliers from around the world.
“As mentioned before, we are both staying on as part of the Rikaro Global team for now to assist. Later on, after working 60+ hours per week for 28 years, we will start looking after our bodies with the aim to get to the same fitness level and weight as we were when Rikaro started 28 years ago,” Zallmann adds.
