Advance, N.C. - Beaufurn, a designer and manufacturer of high quality, innovatively designed furniture for hotels, restaurants, universities, airports, food courts, coffee shops and commercial customers world-wide is moving its furniture manufacturing operations to Davie County, North Carolina.
Bucking the trend of outsourcing manufacturing to overseas locations, Beaufurn has increased its domestic manufacturing output by 30% over the last 2 years. Environmental sustainability and green manufacturing are also a key focus for Beaufurn and its customers. Wood used in the manufacturing process is primarily sourced domestically and is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. In addition, bio-based foams, recycled steel, environmentally friendly finishes and adhesives are also part of the Beaufurn manufacturing processes.
Beaufurn furnishings can be found in Starbucks, Marriott Hotels, Cheesecake Factory Stores, Burger Kings, Verizon Wireless stores, Universal Studios, Las Vegas Casinos and more.
Founded in 1996 and currently located in Winston Salem, Beaufurn will be moving in to the former Jeffco Building, a 72,000 square foot building located at 5269 US Highway 158 in Advance, NC. The move is scheduled to be completed by August 1st, 2012.
The move to Davie County will provide Beaufurn with space for expansion of its manufacturing operations, access to Davie County’s experienced workforce, and a location adjacent to Interstate-40 reducing the cost of getting goods to market.
