HIGH POINT, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 1, 1999--
Exclaim Technologies, Inc., of San Jose, Calif. (Silicon Valley) has announced its intent to open an office in High Point, N.C., to serve as its primary contact point with the furniture industry.
The new High Point office reflects enthusiastic response in the furniture industry to Exclaim's online trading hub, which connects manufacturers and retailers of furniture and home products. The office, at a site to be determined, will be staffed with professionals from the furniture industry and will open later this year.
Having already developed business-to-business vertical hubs for fine art, collectibles, and gifts, Exclaim's Trade Exchange for the furniture industry will "go live" later this year.
Exclaim's strategy is to create e-commerce buying communities for home products, with furniture as the focal point.
Exclaim's office in High Point will be the central contact point for its relationships with all members of the furniture and home decor community.
"We see a natural connection from fine art all the way to furniture. That's why it is important that we have an office in High Point, which is the capital of the American furniture industry," said Rick McEachern, president of Exclaim Technologies. "Our role is to service furniture manufacturers and retailers with emerging Internet technologies. Our products will strengthen their businesses and their current channels of distribution."
