Cindy W. Hodnett -- Furniture Today, April 2, 2013
LOS ANGELES — Abbyson Living says it is partnering with Stylution Corp. in China to double Abbyson's production capacity in its primary product categories of upholstered furniture and case goods.
As part of the partnership, Stylution will increase its production facility in China to 550,000 square feet with a capacity of 1,200 containers per month to the United States.
"We are always looking for ways to improve our service to our retail partners," said Doddy Rafieha, vice president of Abbyson Living. "We are greatly expanding our product offering starting in 2013, and our partnership with Stylution will be fundamental in exceeding our clients' needs as demand continues to grow. Our e-tailer partners will benefit greatly from our variety and vast inventory, while our growing list of big box retailers will further draw from our renewed container program."
Stylution was founded in 1973 by Jack Chen and employs 1,600 people.
"There will be a great synergy in partnering with Abbyson, and we are very excited about what the future holds," said Alex Chen, vice president of Stylution and son of the founder. "We are a family business, and so is Abbyson. This partnership is ideal and happened very naturally, giving our TOP (trust, outperform, perfect) philosophy greater meaning."
