With the development of China's industrial technology progress, furniture from the previous hand workshop, the development of the current mechanized mass production. Hardware accessories on the versatility, interchangeability, functionality, decorative with a higher demand. The diversification of the substrate, the structural reform and the use of the function of the increase in the role of furniture hardware in the furniture is no longer just decorative and part of the activities of the connection, its function more and more strong, more and more areas involved The Professionals said that for the furniture manufacturing enterprises, from the "ordinary goods" to "custom merchandise" transformation, closer to customers, to create value-added products and services, companies need to improve production efficiency, reduce costs, improve product quality, Outside the market competitiveness.

If we continue to produce products of ordinary goods, provide low-level services, then we will continue to lose the market, hand over to the richer and more labor-efficient areas.
