KOMA, China — A pvc factory in southern China that manufactures flooring for the upscale luxury brand KOMa has been shut down by authorities, a spokesman said Thursday.
The spokesman said the factory was ordered to close by the state-owned KOMas central commission for “illegal use of public resources” and was ordered by local authorities to “stop working,” a statement from the company said.
KOMas China unit was closed on Thursday because the company has been using illegal resources for its own use, the spokesman said.
The factory employs about 1,200 workers and produces products for KOM as well as other companies.
The company, based in the southern city of Chengdu, is one of China’s largest exporters of pvc and other materials used for pvc-based flooring, according to the Beijing-based China Association of Flooring Manufacturers.
More than 40,000 square meters of KOM flooring is manufactured annually in the Shenzhen area.
