These plants produce Casegoods, Systems and Wall product. Q. Is there a charge to match a standard Haworth Finish on a product that does not currently offer that finish. A. In most cases there will be no charge. For example matching a standard casegoods finish on a wood side chair. Q. How long will the test take. A. Normally 10 business days from receipt of sample. Q. Is there a product upcharge. A. Yes, consult current price book
