Geneva • Swiss chocolate maker Lindt & Spruengli says it is buying U.S. manufacturer Russell Stover Candies, Inc., for an undisclosed sum.

Lindt CEO Ernst Tanner said Monday the purchase provides "a unique opportunity for us to expand our North American chocolate business." The company says the deal will make it the No. 3 chocolate manufacturer in North America.

Russell Stover, which also owns the Whitman's brand, is based in Kansas City, Mo., and has four factories — in Kansas, Texas and Colorado.



It has about 2,700 employees and annual sales of around $500 million.
