Hummingbird Furnishings History
Hummingbird Furnishings is a family owned business, which has been manufacturing beautiful furniture since 1987. Its founder, Robert Lopez, occupied his childhood holidays working at Belize’s first Wicker and Rattan furniture factory in the early 1970's. He became manager in 1983 and in 1987, making his request known to God, he embarked on his childhood dream, “To set up his very own factory. The timing was perfect. With the renaissance of wicker and its rapidly growing popularity, this goal has come to fruition. Commencing in a garage with one weaver, today Hummingbird Furnishings employs fifty full-time workers. Its modern 30,000 sq.ft. facility houses; Office, Showroom, Machine shop, Weaving dept., Finishing dept., Upholstery dept., Bamboo dept., Fiberglass dept., and warehouse. On November 1st. 1997, a 3000 sq.ft. showroom was opened on Ambergris Caye and is now being hailed as the “Nicest Store” on the island. From this outlet, we have received export orders from tourist who can appreciate the high quality of craftsmanship and orders are being shipped to the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.
