The History of the Enesco Corporation
In 1958, Enesco was
the import division for the N. Shure Company. When N Shure was sold to Butler
Brothers, the import division was spun off. Founding President Gene Freedman
derived the acronym from the N. Shure cargo, "N S Co", &
phonetically named his company "EnEsCo". Thereafter, the company was
sold three times, & in 1983 became a part of Stanhome, Inc. After
separating from Stanhome in 1998, Stanhome immediately collapsed - leaving
Enesco with all of Stanhomes's assets. Enesco is known in its industry for its
25 years of success with the Precious Moments porcelain figurine line of
products. Freedman worked with original artist, San Butcher, to bring his
designs to market. Enesco sales soared throughout the '70s, '80s & '90s
until its peak in 1997. But by 2004, Enesco, Corp. posted an operating loss of
$15.7 million US dollars. The sales of Precious Moments items plunged from a
high of $206 million in 1996 to $55.7 million in 2004, a drop of 27.5 million
from 2003. Precious Moments revenues represented 22% of consolidated net revenues
in 2004 compared to 33% in 2003, according to Enesco's 2004 - 2005 annual
report. In 2005 Enesco ended its business partnership & license arrangement
with Precious Moments, Inc. Gene Freedman left Enesco in March 2005, but has
been named "Precious Moments Ambassador" by Precious Moments, Inc. In
2006, only a year after the departure of Precious Moments, Enesco's fourth
president, Cynthia Passmore-McLaughlin (formally of Revlon) resigned. With
this, Jim Shore, the second best selling products after Precious Moments,
dissolved its contract with Enesco. Enesco's stocks fell below US $1.00 &
was unlisted from the NYSE. After a few months of over the counter trading,
Enesco withdrew its public offering altogether. On January 12, 2007, Enesco
filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. In February 2007, Enesco Group, Inc was
purchased by Tinicum Capital Partners, Thus becoming Enesco, LLC.
