The company that manufactures the widgets has just decided that they no longer want retailers to use parts of their company name in their domain name.
However will they allow you to keep the name and url forward it at your domain registrar from the original site to the new one?
If so, simply move the site to its new home as it is now, url for url, and you should retain all backlinks etc.
I have done this several times and it has worked perfectly.
