The Company detailed further the capital investments associated with its initiatives to modernize its domestic manufacturing facility and to better care for its customers. “We are committed to completing our efforts to reinvent a manufacturing process in Robbinsville, NC to compete globally and occupy a meaningful space in the children’s furniture marketplace. Our capital investments last year and those we will make in 2012 show this commitment. In 2011, we invested $4.2 million in new machinery and equipment and in 2012 we are planning an additional investment of approximately $4 million to sufficiently automate this plant,” said Micah Goldstein, Chief Operating and Financial Officer. “In addition, our customers currently require better information supporting the sale and delivery of our products. We are excited about our plan to invest approximately $3 million over the next two years in new systems that will make doing business with our company more desirable as we enter 2013,” concluded Goldstein.“Our Stanley Furniture product line is now profitable, operating on an exclusively overseas manufacturing platform. The Stanley Furniture product line now represents a strong value alternative to the luxury segment of the wood residential home furnishings market and we are beginning to see an increase in order activity,” said Prillaman. “However, we have not completed the transition of our Young America product line and have not yet become a profitable domestic manufacturer. We believe we are roughly half of the way through this journey and, when completed, we will have an Internet-age brand ready for the younger consumer supported by a product offering difficult to duplicate from Asia. As a domestic operation, we are in control of our effort to create a flexible manufacturing footprint that enables a more favorable cost structure, shorter lead times and higher inventory turns. Significant improvements in our Robbinsville facility have been made to date and will continue throughout the coming year,” concluded Prillaman.
