Boss Design Group expands international reach with US acquisition

The Boss Design Group continues its ambitious overseas expansion strategy with the acquisition of respected 50 year old American upholstery manufacturer, Jack Cartwright Inc. Effective 1st February 2015, this latest development follows the recent opening of the Boss Design showroom located in Dubai to service the expanding Middle Eastern markets.

Jack Cartwright Inc. provides bespoke upholstery solutions for commercial interiors across the USA from its impressive 80,000 sq ft manufacturing facilities located on an 80 acre site in North Carolina. As well as continuing to manufacture this successful brand, the acquisition will now enable the 32 year old British Boss Design Group to manufacture and distribute its own world-renowned brands and inspiring collections to the US market.

Commenting on this latest development, Founder and Chairman of The Boss Design Group, Brian Murray says: “Having already successfully traded with the USA for several years, the acquisition of the Jack Cartwright brand now presents us with the perfect opportunity to fully take advantage of established routes to market in the USA and to launch the Boss Design product portfolio to a lucrative sector which is currently six times bigger than that in the UK.”                                         

Brian continues: “Expanding our business internationally continues to represent an important part of our long-term growth strategy. Comprising a freehold acquisition of production facilities and an 80-acre site, this significant investment affords impressive volumes of manufacturing and an immediate response to the needs of the American market. Not only does this move provide an anchor to service new customers with the Boss Design brand, it presents our global clients with a more responsive offering.”

Renowned for its leading-edge design and handcrafted manufacturing expertise, Brian is convinced of the success of The Boss Design Group’s overseas expansion plans. “This latest venture firmly demonstrates our commitment to the US market. The next step will be to secure a site for a flagship US showroom to sit alongside our high profile sites in London and Dubai,” he adds.

This US acquisition coincides nicely with the forthcoming launch at Milan’s prestigious Salone del Mobile exhibition of two new and innovative Boss Design models.
