New Investors and re-structure at Fountasia

Following a difficult period over the last 4 months Fountasia International Ltd ceased trading and entered into administration on 30th June 2020. With new private investors and following a restructure, Fountasia Ltd began trading on 1st July 2020.

With a new board in place and the Weedon family still at the heart of the business Fountasia Wholesale is working towards an exciting new range re-launch for Spring 2021 with a strong focus on the same products, the same values and the same staff.


Craig McIldoon of Fountasia told GTN Xtra: "We look forward to the continued support of our retailers and leading the innovation in Home and Garden Décor now and through 2021.

"With stock available for immediate delivery and fresh stock arriving monthly, to place an order or for more information please contact us on 01892 838888 or by e-mail:"
