Charter Furniture, manufacturer and resource to the hospitality industry for high-design and high-performance seating, is poised for growth and expansion in 2020. The 31-year-old brand will open a new and expanded 260,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility later this month in Siler City, NC. Charter Furniture is owned by Brown Jordan Inc. and is the only company in the Brown Jordan Inc. portfolio that produces indoor hospitality furnishings.
Rick Dawson, division president of Charter Furniture, said, “In a time when many industries and businesses across the country are struggling, we are committed to doing what we do best: being a strategic and reliable partner to our customers. We have achieved this by re-evaluating our operations to best align with client needs and continuing to develop a solid base for growth.”
The brand currently operates facilities in Irwindale, CA, and Liberty, NC. These spaces, combined with the new and expanded Siler City facility, affirm that Charter will have a presence on both the West and East Coasts, resulting in more than one million sq. ft., and is equipped to serve hospitality architects and designers, property hotel owners and operators, facility managers and purchasing agents. Further, by owning expansive facilities in key locations, Charter offers customers the ability to safely produce, store and ship products as needed and meet their schedules, when during these unprecedented times, flexibility and special care are more important than ever.
Charter is a preferred vendor to Hilton, Marriott and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). By meeting the requirements and specifications of noted hoteliers, Charter produces custom seating for guestrooms, lobbies, meeting spaces and other public areas to showcase a full range of strengths and capabilities.
“As part of Brown Jordan Inc., Charter Furniture is backed by a diversified portfolio of brands that are regarded for exceptional manufacturing and design, wide distribution and are equipped to outfit a variety of markets—multifamily, residential, as well as indoor/outdoor hospitality and commercial properties. This validates our strength and underscores Charter’s reputation as an ideal collaborator in that we are not only financially stable, but, also, are here to stay,” Dawson said.
