No Chinese Turmoil Here

The news this morning is dominated by the continued financial woes in China and the possible impacts on American companies. The story goes like this: the more exposure a company has to China, the more worrisome things are for that company. As a result, some publicly-traded companies are taking a beating in US financial markets.

We are pleased to let you know that this brouhaha has little to do with Standout Designs and our unwavering mission to design and build the very best media consoles for our customers. Here's why:

  • Our craftsmen are American; we are not employing through outsourcing an army of unskilled Chinese laborers to slap together our furniture along with the furniture of many other companies.
  • Our lumber is American; we are not reliant on cheap particleboard and MDF veneer, so predominant in Chinese-made furniture.
  • Our glass is American; Our packaging is American; and so on and so on ...

So we do not foresee an impact here at Standout Designs. We will continue to build our top-quality media consoles here in the USA using almost entirely American talent and resources. As for the larger furniture market? Those cheap Chinese imports may end up more expensive now that the Chinese currency is worth less.
