SHOKAN – Woodstock Percussion, Inc., the company that is known worldwide for their selection of Woodstock Chimes, wind chimes of all shapes and sizes, has been sold to Sullivans, Inc., a South Dakota company that designs and offers on-trend home décor.

Musician Garry Kvistad and his wife, Diane, started Woodstock Chimes in 1979.

“Our legacy with Woodstock Chimes is rooted in musical quality and craftsmanship,” said Kvistad. “The product is very, very important to all of us and Sullivans honors and respects what we have created. We found the perfect partner, as Sullivans is highly respected in the industry and they have the marketing expertise and reach to help take Woodstock Chimes to even great heights.”

Sullivans’ CEO Tom Russo said they searched for “opportunities to extend our leadership position in indoor home décor to outdoor and garden décor.”

“We plan to drive a décor-forward approach that has not historically been seen in the wind chime space, creating even more beautiful and serene spaces in holistic wellness and outdoor environments,” said Sullivans’ Marketing Director Tawni Buhler.

Current Woodstock Chimes President, Stacey Bowers, will continue to lead operations for the new Sullivans subsidiary.
