This article focuses on career profile of Stephen Hampton, who resigned recently as chief executive officer of Christie-Tyler, and took over the same role at Belfield Furnishings. The company is currently using all of the foam it converts, but Hampton intends to ramp up production and break into the distribution market too. He thinks most manufacturers have agreements with foam producers so it probably is tough to break into. But the justification for his plan was for internal use. Indeed, his first upholstery project, Millcroft, was bought from the receivers and Hampton has targeted it to compete with imports.
