The company behind the world’s lightest tent has bought stylish outdoor gear manufacturer Field Candy.

Alfreton-based Hubaco, the parent company of award-winning brand Terra Nova Equipment, said they were “delighted” to have snapped up the designer tent company.

Field Candy is best known for its quirky tent designs and has produced equipment with the likes of Paul Smith, Hello Kitty, Rihanna, Foo Fighters, Kelis and Iron Maiden.

Its product range was expanded to include swings, sunshades and play tents.

Terra Nova Equipment’s existing brands include lightweight specialists Terra Nova and Wild Country tents, and Extremities clothing.

Hubaco managing director Andy Utting said: “We are delighted that Hubaco Ltd could take on this leading outdoor product manufacturer. Our brands have over 25 years of history within the outdoor equipment and clothing sector and the acquisition of Field Candy will allow us to further diversify our offering.”

Production of Field Candy tents will remain in the UK based at Hubaco’s  Alfreton premises.
