About the Manufacturer

In 1970, Ron Wanek, Founder & Chairman of Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc., set out with a group of investors to make a difference in the furniture industry by forming Arcadia Furniture Corporation. This start up furniture manufacturing company, was located in Arcadia, Wisconsin and employed 35 employees in a 35,000-sq. ft. building. In 1982, Arcadia Furniture Corporation restructured into Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. Today, Ashley Furniture is the world’s largest furniture manufacturer and the largest furniture retailer in North America, serving over 155 countries worldwide. With a global supply chain, the company has grown to more than 26,000 employees worldwide and over 17,000,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and distribution center space. Ashley has always been focused on manufacturing, quality, product, logistics, innovation, and customer service, successfully managing 14 major “rebirths” since the company’s inception. The company continues to strategically develop new products and aggressively tailor operations to address the demands of their customers. Ashley’s vision is, “We want to be the best furniture company”. We strive for nothing less than earning the loyalty and trust of our employees and customers every day. We realize it is a privilege for our products to be invited into our customers’ homes and we strive to exceed their expectations. Because of this, Ashley has developed a passion for quality, and has developed state-of-the-art worldwide physical testing labs allowing the company to continually analyze the quality of our raw materials, construction methods and finished products. Today, Ashley is a family company. Ron’s son, Todd Wanek, is President and CEO of the company. Ron’s other two children and three grandchildren are also actively involved in the company’s day to day operations.
