Wedgwood family tries to buy back company
Bids against US private equity firm
Members of the Wedgwood family have put in a bid to regain ownership of
their pottery business, which is currently in administration with Deloitte.
Deloitte have been in talks to sell Wedgwood, which was merged with Waterford
Crystal, to US private equity firm Clarion Capital.
A consortium led by eighth-generation descendents of founder Josiah Wedgwood
has made a ‘serious bid’ to buy back the family business, which would end the
22-year merger with Waterford.
