Howies return to roots and get small again

Clothing company howies they have separated from parent company Timberland in a move that sees the management buying back the business originally set up in 1995.

In a short statement on their website, the howies management team announce they have quietly bought the business back.

“When we were sold to Timberland in 2006 we became a tiny part of a $2 billion company and that was not easy.  When VF bought Timberland last September we became a miniscule part of a $10 Billion corporation. So while everybody was crunching the big numbers, the howies management team quietly bought the business back.”

Expect some exciting things from throughout 2012.
