GLACIER HOLDINGS OPENS FIRST OVERSEAS OFFICE NILES, Ill., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Glacier Holdings Inc.
(NASDAQ: GHCI), a rapidly growing marketer of household products, including Glacier Pure(TM) water filtration and processing systems and Salton(TM) watches and clocks, announced today it has established its first sales office outside the United States with the establishment of an office in the Hertford, England, near London.
The managing director of the overseas office is Ian Brady, a 20- year veteran of the housewares industry in Europe. Brady was previously the head of all export business for Addis, the leading housewares manufacturer in Europe. "Having an established presence in the United Kingdom will allow Glacier to take advantage of the tremendous marketing opportunities that exist in Europe and the Middle East. We are fortunate to have a person with Mr. Brady's experience and background leading that effort," said David C. Sabin, Glacier Holdings president. Glacier intends to introduce its products at two major international housewares expos: the Frankfurt Expo in Frankfurt, Germany, and the Birmingham Expo in Birmingham, England, both in February of 1993. "The worldwide market for innovative, cost- effective water purification products is growing rapidly because of increased environmental awareness and a desire by consumers to improve their overall health," said Sabin. "The European markets are now receptive to this type of product." Glacier Holdings Inc. produces, distributes and markets an expanding range of popular household products which are available in such retail stores as Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, Macy's, JC Penney and many others. -0- 10/26/92 /CONTACT: Joe Kowal of Glacier Holdings, 714-857-5247; or Shannon T.
