Sailing brand Henri-Lloyd acquired by ODLO International

British sailing brand Henri-Lloyd has been acquired by performance brand ODLO, months after ODLO announced the acquisition of Janus, a merino clothing manufacturer.

Henri-Lloyd is the technical clothing partner for both SailGP Team GBR and INEOS Britannia. The sailing brand was founded 60 years ago by Henri Strzelecki, who set out to create the world’s best and most durable waterproof clothing. The company has created several world firsts within technical clothing that have since become industry standards, including seam taping garments for waterproofing and the invention of the nylon non-corrosive zip.

Hans Eckerström, Chairman of the board of Henri-Lloyd, sees the acquisition as an opportunity for further growth.

He said:

ODLO is a Norwegian company that was started over 70 years ago out of a need to create quality performance clothing that could function in notoriously harsh conditions. The company says this latest move solidifies the brand’s commitment to growth and scale through acquisition across its portfolio.

Hugo Maurstad, Chairman of ODLO’s Board, commented:

Knut Are Hogberg, CEO of ODLO, is aiming to move the brands forward in terms of sustainability.

He concluded:

The Henri-Lloyd team will remain located in Manchester, UK.
