Hickory Chair Co.

In 1911 the Surry Chair Company was purchased by a group of investors and relocated to Hickory, North Carolina and became the Hickory Chair Manufacturing Company. The Surry Chair Company's motto was "Chairs Made Better Than Seems Necessary". The new Hickory Chair Manufacturing Company adopted this philosophy and expanded the assortment quickly from just dining chairs to all types of chairs, rocking chairs and sofas becoming the first residential upholstery manufacturer based in Hickory, North Carolina.
At the close of World War II, prosperity allowed the merged companies to divide. Hickory Furniture and Martin Manufacturing became Hickory Manufacturing Company and the Hickory Chair Manufacturing Company became Hickory Chair Company. Hickory Chair Company manufactured dining chairs and upholstery but purchased its James River Collection wood products from the Hickory Manufacturing Company. This relationship continued until 1967 when the Lane Company purchased Hickory Chair Company.
