La-Z-Boy ramps production to shorten up to 9-month lead times

Tuesday, 23 February 2021

Dive Brief:

  • La-Z-Boy is working to cut down “unprecedented” lead times of five to nine months by increasing production capacity “as quickly as possible,” CEO Kurt Darrow said on an earnings call this month.
  • The company said it is communicating with partners in Asia and in the U.S. to address supply disruptions. It also opened a new manufacturing facility in Mexico that started production in December, which it anticipates will ramp up inventory over the first half of the year, and temporarily reopened portions of its Newton, Mississippi, assembly plant last year. Weekend and third-shift production lines that were started last year continued operation at all the retailer’s U.S. plants throughout Q3 2020.
