Canada's leading pewtersmith supports NB Special Olympics

August 21, 2013

FREDERICTON - Aitkens Pewter, Canada's leading pewtersmith, is pleased to support New Brunswick's 2013 Special Olympians with a donation of more than 500 medals. The 2013 Special Olympics New Brunswick Summer Games take place August 22-25 at CFB Gagetown in Oromocto, and Kingswood Park in Fredericton.

"We're pleased to support our Special Olympians and the spirit of the Special Olympics, which is an organization that does excellent work, not only here in New Brunswick but around the world, Aitkens Pewter president Martin Aitken said. "We know that each Special Olympian will wear the medals we made for them with pride."

Josh Astle, executive director of Special Olympics New Brunswick, said Special Olympics NB offers sport opportunities to hundreds of individuals with an intellectual disability each year.

"Without the support of champion local businesses many of these individuals would be left with few opportunities to participate in physical activity," Astle said. "This donation will create joyful smiles on the faces of the recipients. Each medal is a symbol of happiness, courage, strength, and sportsmanship. Thanks to Aitkens Pewter, and others who support our organization, this year's games will be a fun and exciting time for more than 200 Special Olympics athletes from New Brunswick and PEI."

Since 1972, Aitkens Pewter has been producing some of the finest pewter creations available anywhere. Based in Fredericton, Aitkens Pewter is dedicated, not only to creating quality products, but also, to providing excellent service at its three stores. This dedication to quality and service is why the company's touchmark-the triple A in a circle-has become such a highly respected, and enduring, symbol of craftsmanship.

Aitkens Pewter celebrates the joy and passion of your life

February 11, 2013

FREDERICTON - Romance-it brings joy to the heart; passion to the emotions. It's that overwhelming swell of emotion -that spark of self-awareness-that awakens feelings deep inside. In honour of Valentine's Day, the time of year when romance and passion are celebrated, Aitkens Pewter introduces the Romance of Your Life pendant and brooch. First of the company's 2013 offerings, the pendant and brooch are now available at the Aitkens Pewter stores in Fredericton, Saint John and Halifax, and online at www.aitkenspewter.com.

Crafted with Swarovksi Crystal and the world's finest pewter, the brooch and pendant appeal to the "romantic in all of us," Aitkens Pewter president Martin Aitken said. "After 40 years of designing and crafting pewter products, we've learned the value of incorporating a theme into each of our creations. We want our customers to connect with them emotionally, which is why establishing a "design theme" is so important."

Aitken said "celebrating the joy and passion of your life," is the design theme for both the pendant and the brooch. "When combined with the quality of the pewter and crystal, and the high level of craftsmanship, we believe this theme imbues each of our Valentine's Day offerings with a transcendent quality that inspires an even greater level of trust, respect and openness of spirit in romantic relationships."

Aitkens Pewter commissioned local designer Pierre-Luc Arseneau to come up with the concept. "Pierre-Luc did a wonderful job at the front end," Aitken said. "It means a lot to have access to his level of talent. And, as always, our production team in Fredericton did a fantastic job making the concept a reality. We're all extremely pleased, not only with the way both products turned out, but also with the positive response that we're getting from our customers. It's gratifying to see that people want gifts that have special meaning, gifts that have lasting value.

Aitken said that anyone who buys either the pendant or brooch online or in one of their stores will receive a Hershey's chocolate kiss. "All they have to do is mention to us that it's a Valentine's Day gift, and we'll give them a kiss. We love our customers," he said with a smile. The Romance of Your Life Brooch retails for $35, plus tax while the pendant sells for $29, plus tax.
