Colibri Returns

Submitted by Rob on June 22, 2009 – 1:07 pmNo Comment

Colibri LightersAlliance Time, a New York City company, has brought the Colibri back from the grave by purchasing the inventory, intellectual holdings, and trademarks. Purchased at auction, the new group will attempt to return the Colibri and Seth Thomas brands to the market.

According to the press release approximately 50 former employees of The Colibri Group have been hired by the new owning management. CST Enterprises LLC, the new name of the company, will be headquartered in East Providence, Rhode Island.

Colibri lighters have had a slight (huge) reputation for failing soon after the initial purchase.

We had a lifetime guarantee—we’re going to honor that,” said Mann who also stated they will be replacing everything that has come in since the closing of the company.

Not too surprising, the company will now only offer a two year warranty on their craftsmanship.

Colibri will bring back their high end Tonino Lamborghini lighters which retail for $150-$200.
