Tobar forms Education Division with Kit for Kids acquisition

Tobar has acquired the children’s educational specialist, Kit for Kids.

The company has a strong business in the core education market, but recently fell into administration due to what has been called ‘unrelated issues.’

Despite this, the Sevenoaks-based company has retained major clients in the education business and is regarded as the market leader in a number of categories.

The company also supplies soft play and furniture to schools and nurseries.

David Mordecai, CEO of Tobar, said: “This is a great opportunity for Tobar to expand into the education market and is a natural progression for us. Our first task will be to ensure that Kit for Kids is in the best condition to continue to supply and support their core customers with the products they want.

“Eventually, we will be able to extend its product line to include Tobar products and also create smaller versions of its existing range to appeal to our customers. I see Kit for Kids as our new Education Division.”
