Farouk Systems Recognized for Bringing Production Back to the U.S.
A new report released this week from the Boston Consulting Group titled “U.S. Manufacturing Nears the Tipping Point” has highlighted Farouk Systems Inc., makers of high quality professional hair care and spa products, as an example of a company engaging in a reshoring trend and bringing production back to the United States.
The Houston-based Farouk Systems has two U.S. manufacturing facilities. Its corporate headquarters office and manufacturing facility opened in 1986 when the company began; and in 2009, during the height of the recession, the company opened a second Houston-based manufacturing facility.
“I’ve been asked several times if it was smart to expand during a recession,” Shami, Founder & Chairman of Farouk Systems, said. “And my answer is always the same. Absolutely, yes! I started Farouk Systems in 1986 during a recession and look at how successful it is now. Anytime is the perfect time for expansion; and I’m proud to say Farouk Systems has remained committed to bringing jobs back to the United States.”
