In 1925, four-year-old Clyde Hooker Jr. pulled the cord on the steam whistle that
signaled the first work day at Hooker Furniture. In his 40 years leading the company,
Clyde's dedication to the pursuit of making stylish, beautiful, well-made furniture
propelled the company to become one of the nation's premier importers and manufacturers
of furniture. In 2000, Clyde passed the torch of leadership to Paul B. Toms Jr, grandson of
the company's founder, making Hooker a third-generation company and one of the few
furniture firms still led by a member of the founding family.
Headquartered in Martinsville, Va. where we maintain a corporate office and several
distribution facilities, Hooker Furniture employs around 800 people at our Virginia and
North Carolina locations. Our high-fashion custom upholstery by Sam Moore Furniture
is manufactured in Bedford, Va. Much of our upscale leather upholstery line is
manufactured in Hickory, N.C. by Bradington-Young. Hooker also imports an extensive
line of wood bedroom, living room accents, dining room, home office and home
entertainment furniture and some leather furniture from factories around the world.
These include factories in Asia, Mexico and Central America. The design and
engineering of these imported furnishings is all carefully overseen by Hooker or
Bradington-Young in compliance with our high quality standards.
One of the nation's top publicly traded furniture companies, Hooker is listed on NASDAQ's prestigious Global Select Market and has consistently been a furniture industry performance leader in profitability, sales and cash flow. For more, view Investor Relations.
