Doblin, Circa 1801 join forces
January 31, 2002,
Tyngsboro, MA — Doblin and Circa 1801 have been merged to form a newly combined entity — Circa 1801/Doblin, the high-end unit of the giant home furnishings textiles producer Joan Fabrics Corp.
Elkin McCallum, chairman of Joan Fabrics, said, "When I bought Circa 1801 eight months ago it was always my plan to bring these two entities under the leadership of John Lenox and Margaret Coffin. One of the most creative design teams is Margaret and John, and I'm glad to have them back."
The partnership arrangement with Lenox and Coffin is through a marketing company that designs, markets and sells the products. McCallum owns the manufacturing facilities.
