ABOUT MANCHESTER WOOD SOLID WOOD FURNITURE
Manchester Wood is part of a family tradition that dates back to 1891.
Manchester Wood comes from a family tradition of wood products that dates back to 1891 and the sawmill operated by the great grandfather of Manchester Wood's founder Clifford Pierce. Clifford founded Manchester Wood on October 19, 1976 in Manchester, Vermont and began selling American made wood products. During its early years, Manchester Wood worked strictly with eastern white pine, producing small wood products for the gift industry.
Over the years, Manchester Wood has expanded its line of American made solid wood products and shifted to using hardwoods, such as red oak and ash. We also began manufacturing larger, solid wood furniture items that were sold through mail order catalogs and furniture stores.
During the 1980s, Manchester Wood continued expanding and by 1990 had outgrown its original Vermont location. We relocated to a nearby 23 acre parcel in Granville, New York, which is where it continues to produce high quality, American made solid wood furniture today.
The plant is approximately 66,000 square feet in size and houses Manchester Wood's office, outlet store, which offers wood furniture product seconds, and furniture manufacturing space. Although the scale of the business and the technology behind it has changed a lot from the horses and wagons used to haul timber and lumber to the sawmill in the 1800s, our commitment to producing quality wood products remains as firm as ever.
We pride ourselves on manufacturing quality American made products that are durable enough to last for generations. Ever piece of solid wood furniture that Manchester Wood manufactures is inspected multiple times during the production process to ensure that all of our furniture meets our stringent quality standards.
We also emphasize the use of local materials for our solid wood furniture. All the hardwood that Manchester Wood uses for its furniture comes from sustainably managed local forests across the Northeast that are certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI). Our Slate Top collection also features local slate that is quarried just a few miles away from our plant. The use of local materials for our solid wood furniture imbues it with regional character that fits well with a wide variety of settings.
Today Manchester Wood manufactures solid wood furniture and accessories that are distributed through premier furniture stores, mail order, and online catalogs as well as on our website: www.manchesterwood.com.
