Steelcase Purchases Anderson Desk
Undated (AP) _ Steelcase Inc. said Thursday it would purchase Anderson Desk Inc. of Commerce, Calif. Terms were not disclosed.
The purchase is subject to U.S. Bankruptcy Court approval because Anderson is in Chapter 11 reorganization proceedings.
Anderson, which has 325 employees, produces 17 lines of wood desks and 24 lines of seating. The company’s management will remain in place, according to Steelcase, based in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Anderson’s sales are primarily in the western United States, although 10 percent comes from Mexico and South America.
