Ocee International, owner of furniture brands Ocee Design and Four Design, has acquired Gloucestershire seating manufacturer Race Furniture.


Terms were not disclosed.

Race Furniture, established 70 years ago, was owned by the Finlator family. Race director Stuart Finlator said he is "very excited about the next chapter" under Ocee's ownership.

"With Ocee’s increasing focus on design and international markets I believe that Race will continue to flourish as a world leader in public seating and that our incredible design heritage will bring a new dimension to the Ocee brand."

Ocee International, recently named in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 list of fast-growing privately owned UK companies, is the parent company of commercial furniture brands Ocee Design and Denmark-based Four Design.
