Furniture World News on

Bush Industries, Inc. announced that it will not renew the lease of its Tijuana, Mexico facilities and operations will be completed by November 30, 2006. “The capacity of the Tijuana operation is no longer required given the capabilities of Bush’s Global Sourcing Group,” said James L. Sherbert, CEO of Bush Industries. “Our Global Sourcing Group is an integral part of Bush’s strategy of product leadership. Our goal is to create innovative products at the best possible value to meet the expressed needs of the marketplace. We have our fully functioning Global Sourcing office in place, complete with design, engineering, quality control and scheduling, which will allow the final Tijuana transition to go smoothly.” The Tijuana operation was established in 1991 and consists of 220,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 124 employees, producing component parts, painted parts, and finished goods. Bush Industries, Inc. is a leading global manufacturer of ready-to-assemble furniture for home and office, as well as a supplier of diverse surface technologies. The company is headquartered in Jamestown, NY, with manufacturing plants and offices in New York State, Pennsylvania, Mexico, China and Germany.
