China and Chefsware

Our president, Dirck Schou's belief in the importance of retaining
Commercial China manufacturing in the United States led to his purchase and relocation of the Coors China Company from Los Angeles to Tucson, Arizona. in 2003.
Since then many other commercial and retail china corporations have moved their manufacturing operations to China to increase corporate profits and reduce liabilities. , They also have eliminated their responsibility for the success of workers and communities in this  county and left employees with few options for their future success and family security.
Dirck has invested in plant and employees in Tucson to create jobs and stimulate a better quality of life for those workers.
He has worked tirelessly to create a product line that offers the commercial industry a competitive product that is “not made in China.”
As a decorated veteran in the Vietnam War he has known adversity and has preserved through the start up phase of plant and personnel development.  The patterns of this catalog and web site are testimony to his dedication to innovative product and his love of the American Southwest and its rich pottery tradition.
I know once you have reviewed the offering you will share Dirck’s vision of the importance of supporting the rich craft traditions of this growing American pottery. Dirck and all the employees of the “New Coors China “welcome you to visit and share his American Dream.
