EuroConnect, LLC is a Europe focused importer of specialty and artisan crafted products and was founded as a means of spreading European and quality made products into America and abroad. As our founder, Matthew Randazzo, holds a dual citizenship with multiple European Union countries,and America, he is able to cut through much red-tape when traveling and sourcing products, which results in a better selection for our customers.
The passion was ignited a few years back when Matthew was traveling solo in Europe. This trip was truly an experience and enabled him to connect with family roots [hence the emphasis on Italian goods] and meet many friends along the way. Upon visiting many coffee shops, wineries, salt flats, agricultural farms, olive farms, churches, and monuments he made a decision that he would like to take a larger part in sharing the wonders that were offered.
Europe has an incredible history, which is difficult to fathom at times. There are no shortages of stories, languages, foods, clothing and music from this beautiful continent, and our goal is to bring the craftsmanship, elegance, beauty and practicality of European goods to America and abroad.
As noted above, due to Matthew's various strong connections throughout Italy our initial focus will be on goods from Italy and Sicily. However, the process has already begun to provide items from Ireland, France and Germany!
Our location in Tulsa, Oklahoma enables us to bring products easily into the USA while being in the middle of the country, helping expedite shipping for our customers.
If you'd like to share some of your passions, products or services, please contact us!
Arrivederci! Adios! Au revoir! Auf wiedersehen! Slan! Vaarwel!
Mount Etna - Italy: Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of activity. The fertile volcanic soils support extensive agriculture, with vineyards and orchards spread across the lower slopes of the mountain and the broad Plain of Catania to the south. Due to its history of recent activity and nearby population, Mount Etna has been designated a Decade Volcano by the United Nations. In June 2013, it was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. - Wikipedia
