Fiesta Crafts ‘left devastated’ after thieves target company’s offices in Waltham Abbey

Fiesta Crafts has been “left devastated” this week after thieves targeted the company’s offices in Waltham Abbey on Monday night, taking laptops, Macs, and vital tech equipment. The traditional toy and crafting company had persevered with operations during the UK’s lockdown.

Thieves also caused “considerable damage and disruption” to the Fiesta Crafts offices, situated in a Business Centre on the M25. Despite the robbery, the company maintains that September is set to be ‘a great month with a number of new lines launching.’

Andrew Bacon, managing director at Fiesta Crafts, said: “2020 has been extremely hard for everyone in the toy industry and this has happened just as things were starting to look more positive. Our small team work incredibly hard and have continued to do so throughout the pandemic and so we want to assure customers that while equipment has been stolen, we will continue to provide the service we take pride in as we get back to normal.”

New launches to be added to range this year include the 3D Craft Mask collection and the Discover the World Game which will be supported by PR and social media throughout Q4.
