It has been said that the industry receives a double hit not only from the direct effects from the slowdown but also due to the release of used office furniture released into the marketplace from downsizing companies and in particular the financial services sector. The Allegan factory is responsible for the majority of Haworth’s office seating portfolio and includes the award winning Zody office chair. Production will now be split between Haworth’s other factories in the UK. Two of Haworth’s other factories in thge area, in Holland and Douglas are seeking voluntary redundancies.
