Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Xiamen, China, to show our factory and new EcoHousing Initiative to Jon Huntsman Jr., previous governor of Utah and current Ambassador to China. The tour of our Xiamen facility was well organized and I could not be more pleased with the way things turned out. A bit of history.
