Palliser Furniture Upholstery Ltd. Key Developments

Palliser Furniture Opens New Manufacturing Facility

Palliser Furniture held a ribbon cutting ceremony this week in their newest manufacturing facility, citing growth in two segments of their business as the reason behind the need to grow their capacity: theater seating (Encore by Palliser) and the entry-level price point brand (North American Furniture Company). The new 65,000 square foot facility will be located in Matamoros, Coahuila, Mexico, adjacent to their existing cut and sew operation and will employ up to 180 employees. These 180 new jobs range from operators and technicians to engineers and management. Palliser is implementing new manufacturing methodologies in this facility, including the use of conveyor one-piece continuous flow production in order to achieve higher efficiencies and more strenuous quality control. Energy efficiency was a key priority of the design, which uses low-demand kilowatt equipment and LED illumination.
