Our Company History
Established in 1848, Richardson Industries is one of the oldest family-owned furniture manufacturers in America.
From the early days as a lumber mill, to the days of making cheese boxes and "brawl-proof" tavern chairs, our company has grown into a 300,000 square foot facility with 2 different divisions.
With the needs of the future in mind, we continue to explore ways to provide world class, quality products with a reputation we can stand behind.
