We\u2019ve always been proud to bring you quality furniture from a premium brand like England Furniture. But did you know that they\u2019re based right here in the Volunteer State? If you didn\u2019t know the backstory, it\u2019s a good one! Today we\u2019re taking a look at England Furniture: Made in Tennessee. An American Beginning With a name like \u201cEngland Furniture\u201d people are sometimes surprised to find that this company is American through and through. England was founded in the 1960\u2019s by Charles England and sons Eugene and Dwight. When the founders of England Furniture set out to establish an American furniture company, they wanted to create sustainable jobs in the region. Ahead of the Pack Since 1964, England Furniture has become a pioneer in the industry known for rapid delivery of custom furniture. They established a proprietary transportation system and operations management processes. This ultimately enabled the England Furniture company to keep manufacturing stateside and keep the process streamlined. Thanks to this proprietary transportation system, the company was the first to offer 2-week delivery for a full truck-load of furniture. Most other companies could only offer delivery in 6\u201312 weeks. A Bright Future In 1987 Rodney England took over as President of England Furniture. Under his leadership, in 1992 England Furniture was awarded the East Tennessee \u201cEntrepreneurial Company of the Year.\u201d In 2018, England Furniture expanded their plant in Tennessee. They created 202 jobs after investing $31 million in Claiborne County. Later that year, England Furniture expanded to Virginia to take over the 32,000 square-foot Lee County Industrial Building. The future is bright for England, and the craftspeople who work in the England Furniture plants continue to deliver quality to each piece they create. From the framing process to quality testing and delivery, England Furniture has prided itself on maintaining core values all this time.
