Furniture Manufacturing Expo gives suppliers a platform to showcase their latest products, services, equipment, and innovative machinery, warehousing, technology, financial, and logistics services, for the home furnishings manufacturing industry. The event also offers a two-day educational program developed by top leaders in the industry discussing environmental regulatory policy, the latest innovation, and the 2023 Micro Plant: "How To Make An Upholstered Chair".
The Micro Plant – brought to you by Zund America, Inc. – is an interactive journey created and sponsored by exhibitors and the National Upholstery Association.
It leads you on a marked path around the show floor where you can follow each step in constructing a chair. You’ll see firsthand the selection of wood, the frame is cut to match the design perfectly, the leather is carefully selected and then cut and sewn to fit flawlessly, and everything in between. The final step of the path is where you will watch it all come together as experts from Domenick's Furniture Manufacturer assemble a completed chair.
Exhibiting sponsors include BEA Fasteners, Crest Leather, Fil-Tec, Henderson Sewing Machine Co., Hickory Springs (Atlanta Attachment), National Upholstery Association, Quis Machinery, Domenick’s Furniture Manufacturer, and Zund America; and exhibiting supporters are Lee’s Decorative Showcase/DADS Nails, and Leggett & Platt.
Bill Richards, Sales Director with Zünd America, will be giving guided tours through the Micro Plant on July 19 at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm, and on July 20 at 11:00 am. Those wishing to participate will meet 15 minutes prior outside the third entrance by the “Micro Plant Starts Here” sign, located in the lobby next to registration.
Two completed chairs will be up for auction on the last day of the show, Thursday, July 20, at 2:00 pm. All proceeds will go to a local organization dedicated to the furniture manufacturing industry. www.FurnitureManufacturingExpo.com
