Homecrest buys Innovative Surfaces
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, October 1, 2008
Deepening its commitment to the outdoor casual furniture industry, Fargo, N.D.-based Bullinger Enterprises bought Innovative Surfaces, a pioneer in the faux tabletop market.
“The purchase of Innovative Surfaces and its partnership with Homecrest Outdoor Living positions both companies for long-term success and growth in the casual furniture market,” said Mike Bullinger, president of both Bullinger Enterprises and Homecrest Outdoor Living. “We now have the ingredients necessary to return Homecrest to the market position the company enjoyed in the late 1990s, and to put to rest any doubt we are serious about the casual furniture market.”
Bullinger Enterprises purchased the assets of HC Holdings and resumed production of Homecrest Outdoor Living in December 2007.
Phoenix-based Innovative Surfaces is known for its use of copper, nickel and other metals to augment its faux stone table tops. In addition to producing tabletops for Homecrest, it will continue to develop and manufacture tabletops for other casual furniture manufacturers.
