HAFNER AND REGAL FABRICS ANNOUNCE EXCLUSIVE LICENSING AGREEMENT
April 29, 2008 ---- Regal Fabrics will be the exclusive source for the continued production of the residential furniture fabrics formerly produced by Hafner Inc.
“We regret that market conditions have led to the closing of Hafner’s production facilities in North America. We are pleased, however, to have made this agreement with Regal Fabrics that will allow our customers to continue to purchase the items they are running in their lines.” said Adrian Spoerry, President of Hafner Inc. “Regal Fabrics will have the exclusive license to produce these items for all customers worldwide. Any other companies offering Hafner designs will be in violation of our copyrights, which we intend to enforce” he continued.
Regal Fabrics will produce the Hafner fabrics using its worldwide sourcing capabilities. “The Hafner line is a good fit with our production capabilities – we will be able to offer continuity to existing customers and also seek new opportunities for these great designs, such as making them available for China to China shipments.” said Steve Kahan, President of Regal Fabrics.
Regal has started contacting select Hafner customers to review their needs so that early production can be focused on the most important items. Customers seeking Hafner fabrics are encouraged to contact Trish Horgan at Regal Fabrics (978-777-6868 x20 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Regal Fabrics will add the Hafner designs to its broad line of upholstery fabrics, which features a wide selection of popularly priced jacquard designs. The company also produces the Krelan line of higher end fabrics. Regal’s customers include leading furniture manufacturers and textile distributors worldwide.
