First furniture factory in Kingdom to open

Furniture maker DeCoro is set to open a manufacturing facility in Kampong Speu province along National Road 4, CEO Luca Ricci said yesterday via email.

The factory will employ up to 1,000 workers, he added.

Ricci said the company will mainly export to the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. The factory - Cambodia’s first to make furniture, according to several online reports - will have a capacity of about five shipping containers of furniture per day, he said.

According to furniture industry newspaper Furniture Today, the company filed for bankruptcy in 2008 after the unexpected closure of its factory in China.
