Well, it’s time for another trip to China. For me, this is my Christmas morning, my chance to develop new ideas and products to bring to market. I really like the idea of doing things that have never been done before.
This trip, we’re going to be working on some ideas to make our products extend their function and value. I’m not going to expose more than that. But, suffice it to say, I love multiple function products, and this will build on that.
And, I love the idea of having people “get” what we’re doing.
As I look at the marketplace, we live differently than we did even 10 years ago. We, as manufacturers, need to take into consideration how people live.
If you look at a sofa, it’s pretty much the same as it was over 100 years ago. In that time, we’ve developed the automobile, telephone, radio, television, computer, microwave, air conditioning, the remote control, cell phone, almost every item we use today.
So, it would only make sense to make products that reflect where we are as a society. We’ll see where this goes.
