In 1992 Christopher (Kit) Scales completed the enterprise with his 30 year experience in building hotels globally along with his strong focus on FF&E. Kit's knowledge in the hotel industry, particularly FF&E Q.C. requirements along with his penchant for overseeing manufacturing, for process development and for structural integrity of furniture completed our offering. Kit knows the case goods industry as well as anyone and as a "30-year-Marine" demands perfection in every product as they progress through the factory.
Within a matter of years IMSS InteriorsTM was manufacturing products for a number of other American Companies as well, all needing our China relationships, knowledge base, sourcing staff abilities, and our overall management of their expanding product lines. In time IMSS InteriorsTM targeted the hotel furniture industry and aligned ourselves with three factories all of which were focused on the Asian markets. We distilled the three down to one outstanding, quality minded, progressive manufacture and evolved it into a long lasting relationship wherein the factory has now expanded our mutual business into 1.5M square feet state of the art facility providing furniture throughout the USA, China, Asia, and the Middle East with offices in San Francisco, Shanghai, Riyadh Saudi Arabia; Cape Town, S. Africa; and Queensland, Australia.
