Culp move to China slightly delayed by SARS
May 8, 2003,
High Point, NC — Despite the spread of SARS, Culp is not changing the time line of its move into China for manufacturing, finishing, and cut-and-sew operations and distribution of upholstery and decorative fabrics.
But the company has decided "to wait until they get their arms around the problem — a 30- to 45-day delay — before we send people to China," said Ken Ludwig, senior vp, human resources. "We think it is the wise thing to do — not putting people in harm's way."
