New York, 21 September (STA) - Rogaska Crystal, a part of the glassworks Steklarna Rogaska, has reached an agreement with the company of American billionaire Donald Trump on the sale and marketing of crystal products for home and business gifts in the US under the Trump brand.
According to Cathy Hoffman, the head of Trump Organisation's global licensing, Rogaska Crystal is a perfect partner because of its expertise and tradition of excellence.
Bostjan Leskovar of the glassworks' US branch meanwhile stressed that the crystal maker could not have hoped for a better brand name in search of its niche on the market, adding that business gifts are often neglected by the crystal industry.
The brands "Trump Home Crystal" and "Trump Crystal Gifts", which are due to be unveiled at a tabletop fair in October, will supplement Trump's existing home programmes.
This is the latest chapter in cooperation between the Slovenian glassworks from Rogaska and Trump, who is married to Slovenian model Melania Knauss Trump.
In 2007, Rogaska Crystal was accepted into the prestigious American Academy of Hospitality Sciences (AAHS), headed by Trump.
