Bad Backs Director Jonathan Hulme visited LaFuma in France yesterday to meet the sales team and visit the factory. In beautiful Anneyron, near Lyon, LaFuma has been in business since the 1950’s making outdoor furniture. Bad Backs has been importing and selling their zero gravity recliner for almost 12 years now.
Much has changed since our last visit almost 10 years ago. New robotic technology has transformed the production areas and a focus on new modern designs, new fabrics and new technologies is changing the company in leaps and bounds.
While LaFuma is most well know in Australia for its recliners, they make a huge range of outdoor seating solutions and Bad Backs will be launching some of these new seating and table options in 2019.
