Goshen, Ind.-based Lippert Components Inc. (LCI) held a gathering on Jan. 18, marking the launch of its Lippert Interior Solutions brand and the opening of a new furniture plant.

According to a press release, LCI’s seating division recently exited a 65,000-square-foot facility and moved to a 158,000-square-foot plant in Goshen. Operations began on Jan. 2.

Plant Manager Andy Overpeck, General Manager Mark Taylor and Vice President of Sales Ryan Smith lead the Lippert Interior Solutions team. Over 200 plant employees participated in the celebration held at the end of the work day.

“We’re excited about the opening of this new plant and look forward to growing this piece of LCI’s business,” said Taylor.

“Consolidating the facilities will make the operation more vertically integrated,” said LCI Director of Product Development Jeff Few. “Combining the wood, steel, and the foam cutting operation under one roof streamlines management and communications, and accelerates production and product development while increasing quality control and improving design.”
