Upholstered furniture manufacturer KUKA HOME announced it has completed construction of a 775,000 square-foot dining and accent furniture factory in Vietnam, marking the final phase of the total 4.1 million square foot facility. The company will begin shipments from the new facility this month.
Construction began on the factory in March 2021, and the dining and accents campus is located only 500 meters away from the company’s upholstery factory in Binh Phuoc.
KUKA HOME began production of motion upholstery in Vietnam in 2019 to mitigate tariffs on China-produced furniture. In September 2021, the company added select stationary frames. “This new facility allows us to expand the breadth of products manufactured in Vietnam and grow the dining and accent chair category that has been a core part of our business for years. We will continue to pursue adding other categories in the region,” said Matt Harrison, President of KUKA HOME in North America.
Harrison added that the new factory, which will eventually be staffed with approximately 3,000 employees, will considerably expand KUKA HOME’s Vietnam manufacturing capacity. “Our expansions have been entirely customer-driven,” Harrison said. “We are excited about the completion of this final phase of our Binh Phuoc campus, offering our customers tariff-free goods.”
KUKA’s assortment of dining and accent items includes accent chairs, home office furniture, dining chairs, barstools, ottomans, and storage benches.
