The deal adds to Trilanco’s growing catalogue of 16,000 products, which includes a comprehensive range of products for both horse and rider.
Bruno Goyens de Heusch, Managing Director of Westgate EFI, said: “We recognised our individual strength as a manufacturer. Trilanco has an impressive new warehouse and distribution operation and this partnership will allow us to focus on the continued development of our brands.”
