ST.-JEROME, QC — Foliot Furniture recently expanded its presence in North America with the opening of its second U.S. facility on Aug. 27. The contract furniture maker, which caters to the hospitality, university and military market segments throughout North America, said the addition of the 300,000-plus-square-foot Las Vegas, NV, manufacturing facility, will help it better serve customers on the West Coast, allowing the St.-Jerome and Greeneville, TN, facilities to focus on needs of clientele on the East Coast.
According to reports, with the completion of the new plant, Foliot Furniture now has in excess of 600,000-square-feet of manufacturing space and in peak periods will employ approximately 600 workers.
