ARI Imports, Inc. Illinois (United-states)

Business overview

In 1990 ARI Imports was a supplier of when it was acquired by its present owners. In the beginning years we expanded into semi-precious stone beads and ethnic components from Afghanistan, Thailand, and Indonesia. It was during this early time that we invented and patented the "Bead Crimping Pliers" which established our reputation as an innovator in the bead industry. By 1994 we were able to re-focus the business to importing only glass components exclusively from European manufacturers and lampwork artisans. Finally we were able to use our knowlege of glass beads to commission old molds, resurrect old fabrication techniques, and design new lampworked beads. In 2001 and 2002 the demand for pressed glass beads increased dramatically so much so we no longer had time to design new beads or new molds. Rather than expanding the business to meet the demand we elected to shrink it instead and sold the entire inventory of pressed glass beads retaining only the lampworked components which we continue to sell. In the future, with the new scaled back operation, we hope to get back to our first love of working with handmade art glass components.
