Considering the logistics and supply-chain disruptions currently faced by the furniture industry, America Leather Resources – leather supplier to the furniture industry with operations in the US, South America and Asia – has implemented a domestic stock program warehoused in High Point – NC. The program includes over 40 leather options and has the intention to facilitate and expedite market sample orders or quickly fill extra production needs, as well as allowing small volume customers to buy with very low to no MOQs.
Ranging from full anilines to pigmented/corrected leathers, sheepskins and hair-on hides, the program is a great option for those looking for a solution to the upholstery supply chain delays and surcharges.
“The opportunities to grow are directly related to our ability of offering solutions for the challenges our customers face. Logistics costs, labor availability, tariffs and rising raw material prices are driving the industry out of the comfort zone, so our mission is to be constantly innovating to deliver great leathers globally, along with supply chain solutions.” – Marcelo Lamas, CEO.
Having experienced the US furniture manufacturer’s increased adoption of leather in the 90’s and the migration of major players from the USA to China, Marcelo Lamas has led the company to constantly adapt and bring competitive leathers and materials to wherever the industry goes. With two showrooms in North America (High Point and Tupelo), another two in China (Haining and Dongguan) and it’s headquarters in Brazil, they have a team of high expertise in leather and furniture to service their customers, as well as to integrate the supply chain with cut and sewn programs and strategic partners to provide private label furniture manufacturing in Brazil.
If you attend any of the High Point markets you’ll find their showroom on Main St – right next to the train station – where you can see their leathers in person, including all the stocked options. The address? 100 S Main St, open year round by appointment.
