Ethan Allen Interiors is expanding its upholstery manufacturing operations by building a new 300,000 sq. feet facility in Guanajuato, Mexico adjacent to its current 260,000 sq. feet facility.

“The company expects to break ground on the new $15 million facility within the next 45 days and begin production in the new facility in the next 18 to 24 months,” Ethan Allen said in a press release.

Farooq Kathwari, chairman and CEO stated, "This expansion will allow us to advance our objectives of maintaining short order times and improving capacity to ship custom items more quickly.”

“We are pleased to continue to strengthen our vertically integrated structure from concept of idea, to engineering, to manufacturing, to retail and logistics,” he added.

Ethan Allen has continued to invest in its two Maiden, NC upholstery facilities now totaling 600,000 sq. feet of manufacturing space.

In the past two years, it has invested $5 million in adding technology and other improvements to these facilities.

Ethan Allen's Mexico operation manufactures fully upholstered products for the North American market as well as international markets including China and also provides most of the cut and sewn covers for the Maiden, NC operations.

“Our 1,500 interior design associates and 300 design centers provide a strong competitive base to grow and service our business," Kathwari stated.

Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. is a manufacturer and retailer of home furnishings through a network of approximately 300 design centres in the United States and abroad.

Ethan Allen owns and operates eight manufacturing facilities including five manufacturing plants and one sawmill in the United States plus one plant each in Mexico and Honduras. (AR)
