Seeking New Manufacturing Partners

posted in: Latest News | 0

Huge Success in 2020

Before we begin, allow us to clarify – we are an agent. We are the bridge between South-east Asia and the rest of the wholesale furniture industry. What makes us so good at what we do is (amongst other things), English-speaking staff (many of whom are native Brits), long-term, trusting relationships with our manufacturing partners (who we often refer to as ‘our factories’ because that’s how closely we work with them) and a deep trust and understanding of the needs of our customers.

At the time of writing, we have 23 manufacturing partners in 3 countries (China, Viet Nam & Malaysia) producing the wide range of products you see on our website: http://www.atlasfurnitureasia.com/products/type/

Supply Chain Fast Facts

As a total supply chain, here are some fast facts:

  • Total factories: 23
  • Countries: 3
  • Production space: 439,000 m2
  • Total Staff: 3,500
  • Total group turnover: $170m+ USD
  • Monthly 40’ HQ Containers: 390
  • Standard Lead-time: 30 – 60 days

A Bright Outlook for 2021

Despite this huge manufacturing power behind Atlas, our business has grown 150% in the past 12 months and as such, we need to add even more high-quality factories to our line-up to fulfil the excellent sales pipeline we are working with for 2021 and beyond.

Part of our sales strategy has been to work with high-growth wholesalers and 2020 solidified many of our clients’ spaces in this exciting market as they tackled paradigm shifts and moved from bricks & mortar to online retail and watched sales explode.

These clients are ordering on 6-12 month order programs in order to book production slots in our factories on very stable order books.
