Owing to recent success, Hobkirk Sewing Machines has now been given exclusive distributorship in the UK for Ricoma’s models EM1010, 1501TC-7S, MT1501 and MT1502.

Hobkirk has been selling Diamond branded embroidery machines in the UK for a number of years. These machines were manufactured by Ricoma in Shenzhen, China.

After some years of trading, Ricoma was pleased with the results and so after a recent meeting in Frankfurt, Germany with Frank Ma, COO of Ricoma, Hobkirk will now promote these four Ricoma models in the UK and the Diamond branding will cease with immediate effect.

Hobkirk will sell the same four models previously sold under the Diamond brand, but now with Ricoma branding instead.

Mark Hobkirk, MD, said: “The conclusion of our meeting was Ricoma’s agreement for exclusivity on these Ricoma models for the UK under the Ricoma brand. A good result for us.

“Ricoma is becoming such a recognised brand worldwide with representation in over 120 countries. It now means that Hobkirk is a part of the international picture and we are excited to be part of their global success.”
