In 1884, when Jerome Bolick and Sons Co. opened its doors as a wholesaler of “High Grade” Buggies, who could have dreamed that 120 years later, Southern Furniture Company of Conover, Inc. would be one of the South’s largest family held furniture manufacturing operations.
Our founder of Southern Furniture Co., Oscar W. Bolick Sr. began in 1926 by transitioning from the upholstery of buggy seats and backs to furniture upholstery. His son, Jerome W. Bolick maintains ownership of our Southern Furniture Company, which now spans over 1 million square feet of manufacturing space and employs over 350 people. Mr. Bolick is an industry leader and in 1994 served as President of the American Furniture Manufacturer’s Association.
