T. Henry Wilson, Ralph Edwards, Donnell VanOppen and Sterling Collet created Henredon. The name Henredon was created from a combination of Henry, Ralph Edwards and Donnell.
Henredon manufactures wood furniture and upholstery designs. Since its 1945 start, the company now produces hundreds of different pieces.
Henredon's care for the furniture comes from employee talent. Furniture details are hand-crafted to give it a unique flare.
Henredon has four factories operating in North Carolina. Two upholstery factories are located in High Point and Mt. Airy and a case goods manufacturing plant is located in Spruce Pine. The original Morganton site is the center of Henredon operations.
Henredon is facing competition abroad because of imports. To combat the competition, Henredon is reducing waste and listening to people's ideas to provide quality and customized products for its customers.
