Major Manufacturer’s Growth Creates Need for East Coast Expansion
Co-founded by brothers Dwight England, Eugene England, along with their father Charles England, England Furniture has crafted quality upholstered furniture since 1964 and offers customers a competitive selection of over 500 fabrics and leathers from which to choose. With its efficient manufacturing capabilities and customizable products, England attracted the attention of La-Z-Boy Incorporated in 1995 and has operated as an independent division ever since.
After several years of increasing demand for its custom products, England Furniture determined in May 2017 that the time was right to expand on the East Coast. The company’s nearly 1,400 employees had been working overtime at its headquarters in Claiborne County, Tennessee, and the management team sought a new facility with the space and dedicated workforce to accommodate continued growth.
