US tableware manufacturer Libbey has signed a distribution agreement with Germany’s Assheuer + Pott (APS).

Libbey said the deal would add premium serveware and buffetware products to its offering.

APS is manufacturer and distributor of catering products based in Germany.

Through the distribution agreement, Libbey will offer more than 300 catering, buffet and tabletop products that provide solutions for hotel, restaurant and catering customers in the US and Canada.

The assortment includes buffet display stands and risers in metal and wood options, melamine serving trays and bowls in a variety of styles, including faux wood, faux concrete and faux cast iron; chafing dishes and beverage dispensers.

Most of the products are stackable and feature interlocking systems for stability.

Additionally, most products can serve multiple purposes and are interchangeable enabling the greatest flexibility.

The APS serveware and buffetware will join Libbey's Artistry Collection of curated, premium tableware brands.

"The hospitality and catering sector of the foodservice industry continues to evolve. The need to stand out and provide exceptional guest experiences is of utmost importance," said Joe Huhn, vice president, general manager, US and Canada, Libbey.
