Leggett & Platt has sold the Dann Dee Display Fixtures name and catalog customer base to Carlson • JPM Store Fixtures (Brooklyn Park, Minn.). Dann Dee provides in-stock, standard fixture, hardware and supplies to smaller, independent, local retailers. Leggett says the sale will not impact any existing manufacturing or importing facilities or capabilities and that all previously shared resources were separated prior to the sale.
The company’s Middlebury, Ind., facility will continue to serve as a distribution point for Leggett. In addition, the import and manufacturing resources of its China Fixtures facility will remain part of the Leggett & Platt Store Fixtures Group and is not impacted by the recent transaction. The China Fixtures operation is also expanding its capabilities and services with a new “direct shipment” program that will deliver product directly to individual stores.
