AHF Products announced that it will service all international customers out of its Sihanoukville, Cambodia plant and will be ceasing manufacturing in Shanghai, China. The Shanghai plant, which was acquired as part of the LM Flooring business acquisition, produced engineered flooring products for the Canadian, European, Asian and Australian markets. Its U.S. customers will continue to be serviced from AHF’s state of the art Cambodia plant.
“After a strategic review of the business, we made the difficult decision to close our Shanghai plant. Decisions that impact the lives of our employees are never easy, and I’d personally like to thank the Shanghai team for its contributions to the business and our customers. We will work closely with them to support them throughout this transition, and several key leaders will be transferring to our Cambodia plant, further strengthening the team there,” said Brian Carson, president and CEO of AHF Products.
Over the last 12 months, AHF has tripled its capacity in Cambodia with plans underway to double again through Q1 2021. The company continues to expand its pressing, milling and finishing capabilities along with new dormitories in July to support the expanded workforce.
The Shanghai plant employed 175 employees, and in addition to transferring some key personnel to Cambodia, cutting edge equipment from the Shanghai location will be relocated as well.
