MIAMI - One of Brazil's leading furniture makers has ventured into the U.S. - opening its first U.S. warehouse in Miami.
“We are opening the new warehouse in Miami to offer fast delivery service and support to premium retailers and designers in the U.S. and Canadian markets,” said Grupo Herval President Agnelo Seger in a release. The company also exhibited at October Market.
The purpose of the 10,000-square-foot warehouse and showroom is primarily to handle the distribution of Hervo's high-end Uultis Design brand of dining and occasional furniture. The brand targets both the retail and design channels. Hervo showcased Uultis at the High Point Market.
“We were very pleased with the positive reaction to Uultis Designs at the High Point Market,” Seger said. “It provided us with an important opportunity to showcase our furniture which is designed by the best Brazilian designers and combines the latest in technology, design and our commitment to sustainability featuring natural raw materials, especially wood.”
Uultis will be available for quick delivery in the U.S. and Canada. The brand features armchairs, sofas, dining room furniture, and accessory pieces.
Founded 60 years ago, Herval is a Brazilian conglomerate with a large presence in retail, real estate, and financing, in addition to furniture. It is the largest distributor of Apple products in Latin America and sees annual revenues of at least $700 million. Herval exports to 30 countries around the world.
