Chris Gigley -- Casual Living, April 7, 2011
NEW YORK - Louis Hornick & Co. Inc. is expanding its Firefend line of fireretardant window coverings, showing at least 10 new prints in its adult line. The prints are categorized in Classic, Contemporary and Modern collections, and encompass the Firefend and Firefend semi-sheer programs. The prints will be available in two to three months, according to Tripp Hornick, coo.
The company is also receiving good feedback from a recent ABC News special featuring it as a U.S. manufacturer. "We notice that our core retailers are really jumping at the made in the U.S. label," Hornick said. "They really understand that there are significant advantages - quality control, smaller runs if necessary. Price is really a wash." The company continues to do business overseas, but its Firefend brand is U.S.-produced.
