“These days, “Made in America” isn’t as clear-cut as it used to be. Most Americans are aware that products branded with American labels may be made in overseas factories or assembled here with parts made overseas. Three-fourths of consumers say being manufactured in the U.S. is crucial for them to consider it ‘made in America.’ Half say being made by an American company or having parts manufactured in the U.S. is what matters. Only one-fourth cared whether a product was designed by an American.”
– Small Business Trends, Why Made in America Still Matters
Manchester Wood has had a family tradition in woodworking since 1891.
At Manchester Wood we adhere to the concerns of all the percentages listed above, large or small that consider the design, manufacturing, assembly, and shipping, which in totality at Manchester Wood is done locally in the U.S.A. at our mill in the foothills of the Adirondacks in the “Upstate” New York countryside, resting along the Vermont border. We stand by our brand namesake, “American Made Furniture” through all our thorough practices with the company founder’s vision always in mind: create jobs in the US.
We all remember fondly when we started out as a solid wood furniture manufacturer under the name Manchester Wood that Cliff’s mission was never profit based but job based. “The more jobs we can make, the better,” he’d say. Today we follow that same principle the best we can while still competing with corporate agendas under different ideals.
Made in USA furniture is our pride and creed; it flows through each part of the process and each material used here. Our product proves that, and you’ll find that when it arrives at your door. We’re pleased to find in this recent Small Business Trends report that regardless of politics, and the divisions among us, united we stand under the principle of ‘Made in USA’ products with “Perhaps surprisingly, three-fourths of both Republicans and Democrats [saying] buying American is important.”
Check out our $64 Gifts for U.S. Jobs Collection which aims to boost job creation based on a study by ABC World News with Diane Sawyer that showed if each person spent $64 dollars on Made in America items we would create 200,000 new American jobs.
This month’s FREE giveaway is our brand new Montauk Chair designed with wooden slats; a simple two-piece item for easy transport and storage. From indoor to outdoor, lake house to sandy beaches; or for a day in the park for a little league or soccer game; the mobility and design of the solid wood furniture that is the Montauk Collection is a prized possession for all who seek classic affordable fashion in indoor/outdoor furniture.

At Manchester Wood we stand behind 3 Principles – Value, Honesty, and Community – and today we celebrate those three core ingredients in our family-operated business by announcing a partnership with another like-minded family-run business in quality and value, the Kilpatrick Family Farm.
Although we are an American furniture manufacturer by trade, this partnership is outside the activities taking place inside the mill, and instead applies to 10 of the surrounding 23-acres we inhabit, here, in the Adirondack foothills of upstate New York. We have plenty of land, most of which in the past has been rented out to farmers for corn. But we’ve decided this year to instead have the local organic Kilpatrick Family Farm transform it into organic soil. They will work the fields to grow and raise all sorts of organic produce on our behalf. As a furniture manufacturer and soon-to-be organic food provider for our employees, we more deeply align with our eco-friendly, eco-conscious solid wood furniture efforts; which hold a valued direction in how we manufacture our furniture made in the USA.
