Herman Miller to close Geiger plant in Wisconsin

Thursday 21 April 2011

In a cost-cutting exercise, Herman Miller owned wood chair manufacturer Geiger International expects to close its Lake Mills Wisconsin plant by September, eventually eliminating about 40 jobs. The company is shifting assembly work done at the Lake Mills plant to North Carolina, which is closer to Geiger's Atlanta headquarters, said Mark Schurman, a Geiger spokesman. A factory in Hickory, N.C., is also closing.
"Geiger operations (in North Carolina) produced components, which were then shipped to the plant in Lake Mills, where they did the assembly and finishing and then shipped back to Geiger," said Mark Schurman, a Geiger spokesman. "Obviously, that wasn't a terribly efficient process."
The company is purchasing a 90,000-square-foot plant in Hildebran, N.C., a few miles west of Hickory, where production will be consolidated, he said.
Geiger International is a subsidiary of Michigan-based furniture maker Herman Miller. Geiger purchased the Lake Mills plant in 1993, when it acquired seating manufacturer Brickel Associates.
