British office furniture firm chooses Pennsylvania site for US headquarters

Saturday 16 April 2011

Impressed by the Hazleton area of Butler County in Pennsylvania, a British office furniture manufacturer has headquartered its United States office in the CAN DO Corporate Center in Butler Township, company officials announced Wednesday.
ABF, a firm that designs and manufactures Kite Table brand office furniture, is expected to create new jobs in the area in the next two years.
Colleen Reardon, marketing manager for Penn's Northeast, the marketing entity for economic development organizations in Northeastern Pennsylvania, recently assisted the firm in coming to the area.
"The area is suitably located next to major highways, making access to major markets such as New York and Philadelphia a breeze," said ABF CEO and Managing Director Darren Buttle. "It also offers us a great workforce."
"What I really liked is that people here were actually listening to what we needed and identifying properties that were suitable to our business," Buttle said.
ABF's Kite Table line includes a unique portable folding table and stackable chair system that are portable, multifunctional and easily reconfigured.
ABF exports to Canada, South America and the Caribbean from its Drums location and will be using U.S. suppliers for 85 percent of its product content.
"These factors align perfectly with our company's goal of improving the way people meet, train and communicate around the world," Buttle said.
Buttle was so impressed by Hazleton he lauded the area to businesspeople at a recent conference in the United Kingdom.
