Together, the business will benefit from each company’s manufacturing and design capabilities, extensive supply chains and top notch sales and marketing teams in their continued pursuit of sustainable growth.”

Albany, Headquartered in New Albany, Mississippi, is a leading manufacturer of value-oriented stationary upholstery furniture that is committed to developing quality furniture with unsurpassed comfort at an affordable price.
