Bradington-Young To Consolidate Operations In Hickory, N.C.

Bradington-Young's leather cutting and sewing operations will remain at its separate, existing cover plant in Cherryville due to the specialized nature of that auxiliary plant for the storing, cutting and sewing of leather. The leather cutting and sewing plant will supply the consolidated Hickory plant.

Bradington-Young plans to implement the consolidation over the next 60 days and expects it to be complete by mid January 2011. "Once the consolidation is finalized, we expect the Hickory plant to operate at close to its capacity," Cole said. "We believe this move will result in a strong, growing and profitable upholstery division that contributes financially to the ongoing success of Hooker Furniture," Cole said.

Ranked among the nation's top 10 largest publicly traded furniture sources based on 2009 shipments to U.S. retailers, Hooker Furniture Corporation is an 86-year old residential wood, metal and upholstered furniture resource. Major wood furniture product categories include home entertainment, home office, accent, dining, and bedroom furniture in the upper-medium price points sold under the Hooker Furniture brand, and sold at moderate price points under the Envision Lifestyle Collections by Hooker Furniture brand. Youth bedroom furniture is sold under the Opus Designs by Hooker Furniture brand. Hooker's residential upholstered seating companies include Cherryville, N.C.-based Bradington-Young LLC, a specialist in upscale motion and stationary leather furniture, and Bedford, Va.-based Sam Moore Furniture LLC, a specialist in upscale occasional chairs with an emphasis on cover-to-frame customization. Please visit our websites at www.hookerfurniture.com , www.envisionfurniture.com, www.bradington-young.com , www.sammoore.com and www.opusdesigns.com .
