U.S.'s second largest furniture maker Herman Miller says it will invest million of dollars in China to expand its business operation in Asia.

The company opened a national design center in Shanghai earlier this week. The Shanghai office will serve as its Asia headquarters.

The company says it chose Shanghai to support the firm's rapidly expanding client base in Asia. The investment also includes two factories in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province. It says the company will seek acquisition opportunities in China to accelerate its expansion plans. The company's products, and strategic consulting services, generated over 1.7 billion US dollars in revenue during the 2006 fiscal year.
