A recent Wall Street Article quoted economist Cliff Waldman as saying, "If you want to keep your supply chain tight, it's hard to do that with a 16 hour plane ride from Shanghai to Ohio". The article went on to say that after a decade of globalization, companies are seeing the disadvantages of offshore production, including added shipping costs, logistics and quality issues.
My Grandfather, Philo Statton, could’ve told them that years ago. The fact is we’ve been making furniture in the United States for nearly 85 years. We are still located in Hagerstown (Maryland) and we are still being produced by many of the same people who have dedicated their careers to bringing you Statton products. We’ve been producing Statton Furniture out of the Master’s Woodshop facility for nearly a year now and the quality is fabulous - I guarantee it.
In addition, I want you to know that Statton Furniture is now available to you Factory Direct. Although, our furniture has been sold in fine stores throughout the Country for years, in 2009 we made the decision to offer Statton to our customers directly, without the added markups that stores normally tack on to wholesale pricing. For details, please click on the following link, http://statton.com/HowToOrder.php. Should you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. The email address and telephone number can be found at the top of this page.
