Ethan Allen Expands N.C. Upholstery Operation

Ethan Allen Interiors (NYSE: ETH) has expanded its upholstery factory in North Carolina.

The company recently converted a 173,000-square-foot former distribution facility located on its manufacturing campus in Maiden, N.C., to an upholstery plant. The converted factory will support two existing  plants and will also house a new research and development facility.

“We are pleased to continue the development of our North American manufacturing by establishing our third upholstery plant in Maiden, N.C., which we believe gives us a long-term competitive advantage that will allow us to advance our objectives of maintaining short order processing times and improving capacity to ship custom items more quickly,” said Farooq Kathwari, chairman and CEO.    

The company owns and operates nine manufacturing facilities, including six factories and one sawmill in the U.S. along with a factory in Mexico and another factory in Honduras. About 70 percent of Ethan Allen’s products are made in its North American plants.
