Summit, N.J. (PRWEB) March 23, 2006
Summit Baby, Inc. appoints it’s first European distributorship to Lapsekas, Inc., http://www.lapsekas.fi/ the Finnish based importer and distributor to major baby supply stores.
In conjunction, an agreement has been reached with the Finnish children’s clothing manufacturer, Dewellton, LLC to manufacture the fabric covers for Viva! Nursing Pillows. Dewellton will utilize its Estonian sewing and warehousing facilities as the packing and shipping point for Summit Baby’s European distribution network.
Estonia, located on the Baltic Sea, makes an ideal distribution headquarters for the Viva! Nursing Pillow throughout Europe. The inflatable inner PVC pillow and labor-intensive parts are manufactured in China and then rapidly transported via train through the Trans Siberian Railroad instead of relying upon sea transport. Since all needed components will be stored in the final manufacturing plant, responding to sales trends will be faster and response time to special orders will be reduced. Special orders can be sewn, packed and sent out in days, not months.
The fabric covers for Viva! Nursing Pillows are manufactured of 100% ECO friendly cotton, which is woven and printed by Krenholmi Manufaktuur AS http://www.kreenholm.ee/ in Estonia owned by Borås Cotton of Sweden. http://www.borascotton.com/index.htm
“We are pleased to work with companies, which have hundreds of years-combined experience in the manufacturing of high quality fabric with Scandinavian quality and style.” says Cornelia Tuoriniemi, inventor of the Viva! Nursing Pillow. The fabric fulfills the highest ECO standard in the world; the Öko-Tex Standard 100. http://www.oeko-tex.com/de/start/start.html This means that the manufacturing process has been environmentally friendly, and therefore the fabric is free, or has very minimal amounts, of potentially harmful substances.
Ms. Tuoriniemi says “It is very important to us that our baby products are safe and do not expose babies to potentially harmful chemicals – including those used to treat fabric such - as formaldehyde.” Currently, formaldehyde is not restricted in the manufacture of baby products in the USA.
“We have been excited to hear the market responding positively to our Viva! Nursing Pillow. For Europe we are working on different language versions of the box. English, German, and Finnish /Swedish and boxes are already in the market.
