Swest, the Dallas-based findings, tools, and equipment company, will be consolidated in Stuller’s operations.
In a letter, Sweest said, the move is designed to “maintain a competitive cost structure, dependable product quality, and exceptional customer service.”
Swest will discontinue its call center and mail order operations on June 20. However, the Swest Service Center showroom will remain open to sell all remaining inventory items on-site at reduced prices. All sales during this inventory liquidation will be final and only cash or credit cards can be accepted for payment.
The company said in its letter that wherever possible, Swest accounts will be converted over to Stuller with the same terms and purchasing privileges.
“However, Stuller uses different qualification criteria in establishing its accounts, in order to protect the integrity of the jewelry trade as a whole,” the letter states. “Some Swest accounts may be set up on a ‘limited’ basis with Stuller, where they will be able to purchase tools and supplies, and fabricated metals. Certain items carried by Swest may be added to Stuller’s product lines, based on a review process currently underway.”
