Jan 27, 2020 at 12:00 noon in Dayton, TN
La-Z-Boy's new $18 million Innovation Center -- a state-of-the-art facility -- was unveiled in September 2019. The 70,000-square-foot center that serves as the research and development hub for the Michigan-based furniture maker will provide space for design, fashion and innovation. The center employs 75 people and is located next to La-Z-Boy's Dayton production plant, where more than 1400 people work to manufacture recliners and other furniture.Our host is Jaime McPherson, Director of Engineering, Research and Development. Jaime has a BS in Mechanical Engineering and MS in Manufacturing Engineering, both from University of Michigan.
