Carlisle Manson and Luxottica

Luxottica Retail New Zealand acquired the Carlisle Mason Group in late February. The Group consists of ten stores covering the upper North Island branded Carlisle Mason, Tauranga Optometrists and Glasses 2 Go.

The Group is a well known and established network of stores with one store, namely Tauranga Optometrists, established 65 years ago with the average age of the Carlisle Mason stores being 25 years.

“The Carlisle Mason Group is a perfect fit to our strategy of introducing the Budget Eyewear brand to the New Zealand market whilst continuing to grow the OPSM network. Seven of the stores were branded Budget Eyewear and the balance to OPSM,” said Luxottica CEO Mr Chris Beer.

Managing Director of the Carlisle Mason Group, James Carlisle said: “We are pleased that the business we have merged and built up over the years has been purchased by the world’s leading optical company. They have exceptional job security and growth opportunities for our people.”
