HOLLAND, MI – Haworth Inc. announced 2008 global sales were $1.65 billion, which was down only slightly from $1.66 billion in 2007.

“We feel very confident in our strategies and continue to find a high level of interest from clients in our organic workspace solutions. We will continue to gain market share through innovation and long term investments,” said Franco Bianchi, president and CEO. “The current global financial crisis is affecting our customers and forcing us to take action to be cost competitive.
