A sneak peak at Meximuebles

JAMAY, Jalisco — This week Home News Now’s Tom Russell traveled to Mexico to visit case goods manufacturer Meximuebles. The company has two plants here along with two distribution centers in nearby Ocotlan with an estimated 200,000 square feet of space. At the production facilities, Meximuebles makes bedroom, dining room and home entertainment and office furniture as well as some accent pieces.

With a team of 200 associates, the company not only machines, assembles and finishes wood parts, but also has a sawmill to produce many of its wood components. Home News Now will have a full report on the Meximuebles along with onsite video to share with readers in upcoming newsletters. But for now, here’s a sneak peak of its operations and a taste of what readers can expect in our upcoming coverage.
