Bush Inds. To Close Plant, Add Capacity to Jamestown Facility

By Home Furnishings Business in on April 2007 Major ready-to-assemble furniture vendor Bush Inds., Jamestown, N.Y., announced yesterday that it will close its satellite plant in Little Valley, N.Y., which manufactures and finishes specialty parts for the company€™s core furniture products.

Bush will consolidate Little Valley€™s production at its main Jamestown factory.

€œThis is a continuation of our strategy that requires we leverage both the proven manufacturing capability of our domestic operations and the economies available to us through our global sourcing function,€ said James L. Sherbert, Bush€™s president and CEO, in an announcement. €œBush remains predominantly a domestic manufacturer, yet efficiency-forced consolidation is necessary.€

Sherbert said the action will yield a more nimble and aggressive company. Bush plans to fully close the Little Valley facility by the end of 2007. About half that plant€™s 100 workers will be offered transfers to Jamestown, where the satellite closure also may affect a few administrative jobs.
