1970 marked another milestone for Tropitone. The company established operations in Orange County, CA to serve the ever-growing demand for outdoor patio furniture in the western USA. This western base generated a full-service manufacturing facility and eventually became Tropitone's headquarters. This move gave Tropitone the bi-coastal manufacturing advantage it continues to enjoy today. Full-service manufacturing and distribution operations in Sarasota, FL and Irvine, CA provide Tropitone the ability to quickly respond to ever-changing marketplace conditions for outdoor patio furniture. Close proximity to North American customers was crucial.
