Sauder, Ikea Sign 5-Year Agreement
Sauder Woodworking Co. and home furnishings retailer Ikea have signed an additional five-year supplier agreement.
Sauder Woodworking Co., which has been making products for Ikea’s American subsidiary since 2007, said on Tuesday that it has been awarded a new five-year supplier contract by the Swedish home furnishings retailer.
The contract to manufacture four furniture lines currently sold in Ikea stores will create 150 new jobs at the Fulton County ready-to-assemble furniture manufacturer. As Ikea adds more U.S. stores over the next few years, Sauder may add up to 100 more workers to meet increased demand for the four furniture lines, which consist of about about 60 products overall.
The company currently makes more than 700 products. Some are sold under its Sauder brand name, and others are sold under private-label brand names for retailers such as Target and Walmart.
