ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Aug 31, 2016) - Luvu Brands, Inc., (OTCQB: LUVU), a manufacturer and marketer of premium consumer brands in the wellness, lifestyle and fashion seating categories, today announced the expansion of its manufacturing capacity with the purchase of a compress and roll pack machine.
The new equipment is expected to be delivered before the end of calendar 2016 and will significantly increase the throughput of its compressed foam consumer products. Compression times on certain products will be reduced by as much as 90% which should yield lower production costs and improved gross profit margins.

Since we first introduced our Liberator Eco-Packaging in fiscal 2013, we have continued to look for ways to make the compression process more efficient. The new compress and roll pack machine will lower our labor costs and increase our production capacity to keep pace with increasing demand for our compressed products."
