izzy+ moves branded furniture manufacturing; sister company Dake to supply OE furniture customers

Parent company JSJ Corp. leverages business resources for growth

SPRING LAKE, Mich. - January 15, 2010 - izzy+ will relocate its branded product manufacturing by the end of 2010 as part of parent company JSJ Corporation's continuing effort to leverage business resources for growth.

As a result, furniture for the izzy, Fixtures Furniture and ABCO brands of izzy+ will be manufactured at the company's facility in Florence, Alabama. Seating products under the izzy, HÅG, Harter and Zoom Seating brand names will be manufactured and assembled at the izzy+ site in Middlebury, Indiana. The corporate headquarters for izzy+ remains in Spring Lake, Michigan.

JSJ Corporation's Dake business, based in Grand Haven, Mich., will assume responsibility of the manufacturing operations in Spring Lake, which will be dedicated to original equipment manufacturing (OEM) of furniture and components for other companies.

"izzy+ will continue to be based in Spring Lake, and Dake will continue to employ a local workforce to operate the Spring Lake manufacturing facility under its management," said Chuck Saylor, founder and CEO of izzy+. "This move helps izzy+ focus our people and assets more effectively on our branded products for future growth. It also allows Dake, a well-known brand in the machine tool industry and a current provider of OEM casting products, with an opportunity to expand its capabilities and reach out to new customers."
