COMPANY: FURNITURE DESIGN S.A.

* SPANISH FURNITURE MANUFACTURING COMPANY FOUNDED IN 1972.
* THE COMPANY HAS BEEN AWARDED WITH “PREMIO NACIONAL DE DISEÑO” IN 1989 AND THE “EUROPEAN COMMUNITY DESIGN PRIZE” IN 1990.
* THEY HAVE THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS OF MANUFACTURING AND DISTRIBUTING FAMOUS SPANISH DESIGNERS AND ARCHITECTS’ FURNITURE(ANTONI GAUDI OR SALVADOR DALI’S DESIGNS).
CURRENT SITUATION:
* AS A RESULT OF THE ECONOMICAL CRISIS AND THE END OF THE REAL STATE BOOM THE COMPANY HAS DECREASED ITS INCOMES BECAUSE MANY OF THE FINAL CUSTOMERS ARE NOT INVESTING THEIR MONEY IN THIS KIND OF GOODS.
* SOME OF THE STORES ARE NOT BUYING LUXURIUOS FURNITURE BECAUSE THEY RATHER TO HAVE THE STUFF AS A DEPOSIT. IT MEANS THAT THECOMPANY HAS TO INCUR IN TRANSPORTATION EXPENSES AND INVENTORY STOCKING COSTS.
* BOTH SITUATIONS HAVE CAUSED LIQUIDITY ISSUES TO THE COMPANY AND LOWER GROW RATES TO THE BUSINESS.
FUTURE PLAN:
* THE COMPANY PLANS TO INTERNATIONALIZE ITS BUSINESS AND SELLING THEIR PRODUCTS ABROAD.
* THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED SOME NEW MARKETS, LIKE JAPAN, THAT ARE NOT SO VULNERABLES TO THE WORLD ECONOMICALCRISIS AND THEY HAVE REALIZED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF DEVELOPING AN EFECTIVE INTERNATIONAL STRATEGY TO GAIN A BIGGER MARKET SHARE THAT ALLOWS THEM TO REACH THEIR SALES’ FORECASTS AND BRINGING PROFIT TO THEIR SHAREHOLDERS.
* THEY KNOW THAT E-BUSINESS IS BECOMING MORE IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO REDUCE SOME COSTS OF THE DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL AND KEEPING PROFITABLE MARGINS THAT GUARANTEE THE BUSINESSCONTINUITY.
