FeBland Group was founded in the early fifties by Simman FeBland, a fine art dealer, who sought the origins of capodimonte porcelain in Italy when he found sources drying up in UK. Thus he started an import company to which his son Anthony, joining the company in 1958, added lighting, furniture and paintings. The company now has a wide range of products from a worldwide range of suppliers. FeBland make upholstery in the Blackpool factory and produce about 250 chairs a week to customers' specifications. The staff numbers 50 people with some members serving 30 years. Deliveries are made countrywide on company vehicles and new lines appear at regular intervals. To beat the credit crunch FeBland are reducing the price of 50 good lines which cannot be repeated.
