WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PTM Images®, a leading manufacturer of home décor and furnishings announces the completion of its manufacturing facility in San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico. Construction of PTM's manufacturing facility is a vertically integrated and technologically advanced 300,000 square foot facility allowing the company to respond with efficiency to fluctuating consumer demand. This has positioned PTM to be a competitive challenger to other China-based home décor companies. PTM has shifted its supply chain away from China to the United States, where the company now utilizes over 80% of U.S. manufactured raw materials demonstrating NAFTA does work.
PTM's on-shoring initiative and the building of its production facility positions PTM to be a competitive challenger to Chinese manufacturers. Mexico offers greater transparency in CARB and Lacey Act compliance. China does not offer true transparency and reliable sourcing.
"Costs are rising. Our customers have become far more aware of the benefits Mexico has to offer including proximity to the market and shorter lead times," said Jonathan Bass, CEO. "Mexico has a strong supply chain that can pivot quickly, allowing PTM Images to meet unpredictable consumers. It has become more important to the consumer to purchase safe and compliant products. PTM moved its raw material supply to the U.S. and lower cost assembly jobs from China to Mexico."
The move to North America benefit's PTM's internet-based retail customers who seek alternative sources of supply, especially those closer to the point of consumption. PTM's website fulfillment program offers its customers a "click-to-build" program within 72 hours, eliminating costly inventories and improving instant access and ability to service its customers.
