23 May Richelieu Hardware to Carry the OVVO Line of Casework Connectors
OVVO® (that’s with two Vs and not a W) is an invisible furniture connection system from Europe that delivers perfectly aligned wood joints without the use of tools, furniture screws or glues. It has won many awards, including a few at major U.S. woodworking shows. Available in a range of sizes, the OVVO line comes as both permanent and releasable (knock-down) versions for RTA casework. It’s designed to deliver significant benefits including increased production efficiencies, reduced assembly time on-site, and decreased shipping costs. The patented OVVO Connection system can save up to 80% on jobsite assembly times.
OVVO has just announced a new distribution partnership with Richelieu Hardware, a leading distributor, importer and manufacturer of specialty hardware products. With more than 90,000 customers in North America, Richelieu supplies woodshops that build kitchen and bathroom cabinets, storage and closet units, home furnishings and office furniture. The company also supplies hardware retailers, including big box stores. Richelieu’s sales in 2020 exceeded $1.1 billion and with 82 distribution centers spread across Canada and the U.S. (here’s an interactive map) it is perfectly positioned to partner with OVVO.
“At OVVO,” said CEO Brendan Phillips, “our mission is to make life easier for the people who use our products, and our exciting partnership with Richelieu allows us to deliver the benefits of OVVO at scale in North America.” The line is currently available in Canada, too.
