A TROUBLED menswear chain has been bought by a Huddersfield-based company.
Oakes-based Anar has bought Ciro Citterio from administrators for an undisclosed sum.
The move is expected to create at least 10 jobs in Huddersfield, as Anar plans to base Ciro Citterio's administration and accounting operations at its Wellington Mills site.
Birmingham-based Ciro Citterio has 56 stores in the UK, including major stores at Regent Street and Oxford Street in London.
Anar chairman Andrew Ball said the new owners intended to develop the chain from its current position as a £50m turnover business.
Anar is owned by Indonesia-based textile manufacturing group Indorama.
Mr Ball said that buying Ciro Citterio provided Indorama with a chance to extend its interests into UK retailing.
He added that Indorama was planning further acquisitions, over time.
He said: "The first task is to restock the Ciro Citterio stores and get trading up to the levels it used to be.
"It will probably take about two or three months to bring it back to full speed."
The takeover brings much-needed stability to Ciro Citterio, the trading arm of Trident Fashions, which went into administration last September after making losses of £65m.
Trident bought the business after its original owners put it into administration in 2001.
