New York-based ticking supplier Elfa International has opened a second 25,000-square-foot warehouse. This one is in Marion, North Carolina. Its other facility is in Elkhart, Indiana.
The new warehouse will help shorten delivery times, as well as increase inventory and product availability for customers. Orders received by 11 a.m. are shipped the same day.
The company said it is committed to keeping three months of inventory in stock to allow for quick, seamless processing and delivery.
“As our business continues to grow, this second warehouse greatly enhances our ability to provide faster and more efficient service to our customers,” President Edward Assile said. “Our just-in-time warehouse and distribution strategy is one of the things that differentiates our brand from others. We are quick to respond to our partners’ needs, and the new facility shortens the travel time for products to our customers in the Southeast.”
Elfa is a family-owned design and sourcing company for ticking and other home textiles with 50 employees at offices in China, the Dominican Republic and the United States. It was founded in 1961 by Elias Fadlo Assile, a native of the Dominican Republican. Elfa’s focus today is on U.S.-designed products — with a design team in Charlotte, North Carolina — manufactured by partner textile mills in Asia, and sold in North and South America.
