Stone Brook adds kitchen textiles, sales help
April 26, 2002-- Home Textiles Today,
Cedar Falls, NJ — Stone Brook Linens is continuing to build its business by increasing both its product assortment and the size and reach of its sales team.
At the recent New York Home Textiles market, the company added kitchen textiles — oven mitts, potholders, chairpads, valances and chair bows — to its growing roster of goods. Stone Brook originated as a table linen supplier and added solid-color bath towels to its mix last year.
The kitchen textiles are imported from India. Stone Brook also imports its table linens from India, as well as from China. And its standalone and ensemble bath towels line, which by next market is expected to include embroidered ensembles, also comes from India.
Stone Brook's sales team also recently got a boost with the addition of two new independent sales representatives — Robert Mittelman and Steve Chirchick. Together they will cover the West Coast region, focusing on California, Washington, Oregon and some special accounts.
Mittelman, who will be based on Long Island, NY, was most recently president of American Fabrics. He will also wear the hat of consultant as part of his post at Stone Brook.
Chirchick, who will be based in Los Angeles, has acted as an independent sales representative within the home textiles industry for the past several years. Prior to that, he was a sales representative for American Fabrics.
