American Leather - A History of Innovation
American Leather was founded in 1990 on one revolutionary idea: custom leather furniture could be made and shipped in three weeks or less. Founder/CEO Bob Duncan applied “just-in-time” manufacturing he admired from the Japanese car industry to the furniture industry. From a small four person shop, the company has grown into a thriving leader in the furniture industry. The factory, based just outside of Dallas, Texas, still makes furniture – now in leather and fabric – in just three weeks or less, a delivery standard that’s three times faster than the industry average. From the beginning, the factory was set up to manage mass customization through the latest technology and manufacturing systems, making American Leather the most automated leather furniture manufacturer in North America, if not the world. Their furniture styles are designed to take full advantage of the natural beauty and unique characteristics of genuine leather, using only the finest quality, top grain hides available. No inferior split grain leathers or vinyls are ever used. All American Leather products are made to order in your choice of style, frame, leather grade and color. Each piece is built to your requirements. American Leather still produces each piece one at a time, to your exact specifications. You will receive only the highest quality product, expertly tailored and endlessly comfortable, in about three weeks!
