Stimulating the internationalization of more member companies and generating a social-environmental commitment on the part of furniture companies are some of the strategic axes on which the new board of directors of the Jalisco Furniture Manufacturers Association (Afamjal) will work for the period 2023-2024 chaired by Jorge Ríos Gutiérrez.
The new leader of the Jalisco furniture dealers announced that they will also work to boost productivity in companies, with digitization and design, through training and rapprochement with universities.
He mentioned that, like other industries, they face new challenges, but it will be with unity and the development of new skills that they will have to face them.
The Afamjal and Cimejal are two institutions that are well-known in Jalisco and all of Mexico for the great contribution they make to economic growth and development with their generation of jobs, their exports and their renowned exhibitions in Latin America and the world, all of this, thanks to the great quality that exists in their products and why not say it, services that they provide to the whole society.
12 thousand 600 million pesos is the gross production figure generated by the furniture industry in the state according to data from the Ministry of Economic Development.
Jorge Ríos Gutiérrez has been in the furniture industry for more than 33 years, heading the upholstered furniture firm Inmujal, and arrives to replace Teresa de Jesús Calderón Durán, from Fundidos Design, as president of Afamjal.
Afamjal is the largest furniture union institution in Mexico, with more than 40 years of existence. It is the organizer of the most important furniture exhibitions in Latin America, which bring together the entire furniture production chain.
This makes the Institution a national benchmark, which also associates some of the most important furniture manufacturing firms in the country, several of them with export capacity.
