Herman Miller produces inventive designs, technologies, and related services that are designed to improve the human experience wherever people work, heal, learn, and live. NOVA Chemicals develops and manufactures chemicals, plastic resins, and end-products that are designed to make everyday life safer, healthier, and easier.
“We are excited about the opportunity to collaborate with other companies that use reusable packaging and to understand how other markets design, implement, and manage their fleet of packaging,” said Cindy Doman, Packaging Engineering, Greenhouse at Herman Miller. “Up to this point, Herman Miller has used returnable packaging primarily for the transportation of parts to our assembly plants. We are now in the early stages of designing a returnable system to deliver our furniture to our end users and we feel that there is a lot of expertise in the RPA that Herman Miller could greatly benefit from as we progress with this project.”
Herman Miller reported more than $1.7 billion in revenue in fiscal 2012. A past recipient of the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt “National Design Award,” in 2012, the company was also named among the 50 Best U.S. Manufacturers by Industry Week. Herman Miller trades on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol MLHR.
