Bluestem Group Acquires Ewbank Products Ltd

Historic British floorcare manufacturer, Ewbank Products Ltd, has been acquired by electrical appliance company, Bluestem Group.

The origins of Ewbank date back to 1864 when the business, then known as Entwisle & Kenyon Limited, manufactured water meters; later producing washing machines and mangles. In 1889 the first Ewbank carpet sweeper was launched in the United Kingdom.

Bluestem Group licenced the Ewbank brand for the UK in 2019. Since then, they have launched an extended range of corded and cordless vacuums, hard floor cleaners and outdoor appliances. Following the successful partnership with Ewbank to develop the brand in the UK, the two businesses agreed to an acquisition deal for the UK entity and the worldwide trademark, which completed in February 2023.
