Beginning in 1978, many outdoor patio furniture companies decided to shutter their North American facilities and outsource manufacturing to Chinese factories. Tropitone steadfastly maintained its North American bi-coastal manufacturing facilities to best meet the long-standing, high-performance requirements of our distribution partners and customers.
In the wake of the China experience of the past 30 years, North American dealers and customers for outdoor patio furniture are demanding better products, better services and rapid response to changing trends. Manufacturers and marketers of outdoor patio furniture who are closer to market are better able to satisfy these high-performance requirements. Today, Tropitone's bi-coastal presence is perfectly positioned to satisfy these high-performance requirements.
