Home recreational and entertainment furnishings manufacturer, Plank & Hide, announced the acquisition of outdoor furniture industry supplier, previously known as 300 South Main. 300 South Main will immediately roll into the Plank & Hide organization and be rebranded as P&H Elements. P&H Elements’ focus is to create value through fashionable and trend-setting styles, offered at competitive volume pricing.
“Plank & Hide’s continued accelerated growth in the home entertainment furnishings space affords us opportunities like this. We are able to expand our indoor and outdoor product mix, create value through a wide selection of designs and appeal to a broader retail audience. We also add industry veterans Ken Salm and Gary Zuckerman to the team, both of whom have stellar reputations and experience in indoor and outdoor home furnishings. We are very excited about this opportunity, and equally focused on the launch of the P&H Elements line-up coming to High Point in April, and Chicago in July,” states Erik Mueller, founder & CEO of Plank & Hide Co.
Ken Salm, former president of 300 South Main, now sourcing & operations executive for Plank & Hide states, “Through adversity comes opportunity …, especially in these challenging economic times. Plank & Hide presents the perfect home for our products and talents. Through the P&H Elements brand, we will deliver more options for buyers, at better price points, and with a similar quality standard that Plank & Hide customers enjoy today. We will continue to build and source for our larger volume buyers. This is a fantastic opportunity.”
Effective April 2022, during the High Point Market, Plank & Hide will display all indoor home recreational furnishings and outdoor lifestyle products at their newest showroom, 300 South Main Street, High Point, NC, across the street from the IHFC main building. The company also has permanent showrooms in Chicago, IL at the Merchandise Mart, showing July 18-22, and corporate offices and showrooms in Cincinnati, OH.
