Sprue Brothers Acquires Great Models Webstore and Douglas Models Distributors

Information supplied by Gordon Kwan

The following press release is available from the Sprue Brothers website:

Liberty, MO March 12, 2012 - Sprue Brothers Models, LLC makes news again by acquiring Great Models Webstore and Douglas Models Distributors. Just last year Sprue Brothers expanded to a larger facility in Liberty, MO, to accommodate their continued growth.

Sprue Brothers was founded in 2004 to provide modelers with a quick and reliable source for quality model kits, related accessories and supplies.

Great Models was established by Loic Anthian in 1997 to serve the scale modeling community. His vision to bring models, accessories and books to hobbyists with one easy online computer search and point of purchase sale was a great success. In 2004, Great Models acquired Douglas Models Distributing (founded 1934).

Great Models/Douglas employs a workforce of 12 employees, and after 14 years in Sandy, Utah, Loic Anthian has decided to sell his operations to pursue other interests. He feels that his customers will continue to receive the level of service they have come to expect, by transferring their patronage over to Sprue Brothers Models.

The assets and inventory of Great Models and Douglas will be transferred to Sprue Brothers’ Liberty, Missouri facility.
