Mendota Heights, Minnesota -  March 5,  2015 -- Orion Air Ride was invited to participate in the Ashley Furniture Carolinas Marketing Show 2015 pre-market event in High Point, NC March 9 and 10.  The pre market attracts a variety of vendors representing a cross section of services necessary to be competitive in the furniture industry. Other vendors at the Ashley Furniture showroom in the IHFC building represent marketing, signage, and media buying, among other business functions used in the retail furniture industry.   


“We are delighted to be invited to this showcase event. As competition increases and consumers become more demanding, logistics is viewed as a way to deliver the last delightful experience for the customer when their furniture arrives in the home, on time and pristine,” said Mark Fierek, General Manager of Orion Air Ride


Retailers from North and South Carolina will attend the event looking for ways to improve their product and services offering. Fierek says Orion Air Ride is in its seventh consecutive month of growth, thanks to the growing interest in faster nationwide transportation.  Contact Mark Fierek at mark.fierek@orionairride.com  to schedule a meeting.
