Ripmax the new owner of distrubutor Amerang, which was caught in the crossfire of the recent ModelZone administration woes, has announced that "although a considerable amount of work is still to be done and certain rationalisation is required, Amerang will begin trading again very shortly". As previously reported, Ripmax purchased the Amerang side of the ModelZone business last week.

Amerang's stock is now being consolidated centrally to Ripmax's extensive Enfield warehouse, where trade customers despatches will be made. The long term plan is to merge the two companies and operate from Ripmax's Enfield HQ, while retaining a sales office in Sussex.

Bob Petrie, commercial director of Ripmax added: "This is a very exciting development for Ripmax as it will enable the company to move into new areas of the market and build on Amerang's strength in diecast, licensed film, TV and comic collectables plus plastic kits as well as their impressive range of radio control items.

"Of course, Ripmax products will now be available to Amerang customers and Amerang products to Ripmax customers offering huge growth potential. Ripmax aim to minimise the inevitable disruption this change brings to ensure that your favourite Amerang products are still available from your local model, toy and comic book outlet."
