Phillips Collection moves to new office

Press release

HIGH POINT, NC, October 15, 2010 -- Phillips Collection (www.phillipscollection.com), a leading manufacturer of high-end contemporary furnishings, is proud to announce the expansion of its headquarters in High Point, NC to the former Rose Furniture Building on I-85 Business. The expansion of our award-winning Origins Collection and the need for more hybrid showroom & warehouse space necessitated a move to the new 166,000 square foot facility.

"This is logical and exciting for us," commented Mark Phillips, CEO of Phillips Collection. "We have been admiring the former Rose Furniture building ever since moving to High Point from New York back in 2001. What a dream it is to have purchased this facility. We plan to be fully moved in and operational by the end of October. The new office and warehouse underscores our commitment to High Point and our intention to expand in our industry"

This grand new facility allows Phillips Collection to dramatically expand its existing operations and still have abundant space and resources available for complementary partners. Phillips Collection has been in touch with local, national and international colleges and universities who are excited at the prospect of having a footprint in a flagship facility, in such a design-centric community.

This new home for Phillips Collection was selected because of its location and its warehouse size, which will translate into improved logistics and ease of access for customers and associates.

Formerly located on E. Kivett Drive, Phillips Collection has been exhibiting in High Point for more than 25 years. The new headquarters will be located at 916 Finch Avenue, High Point NC, 27263.
