Andrew Adams reporting from ParisA Utah company is already seeing a benefit to the new, nonstop flight to Paris. Mity Lite is just a microcosm of how important the new Salt Lake to Paris flight is for business.
It's a Provo-based company that makes folding tables and chairs. Today, it's announcing the opening of a sales and distribution center in Germany. CEO Randy Hales says it's only possible because of the nonstop route. It's a two-hour train ride from Paris to Saarland.
Hales said, "We are very excited to make this move. We've been, for years, working through different distributors in Europe. And now, to go direct and have our own office there, yeah, we're very excited."
Hales says no more dealing with Atlanta or New York. Utah business leaders say they hope this is the start of many international success stories.
