In conjunction with Canada 150 celebrations, Durham Furniture gathered its 180 employees, donned in red and white, for a photograph at the factory to celebrate its own 118 year history.
Canada’s rich history of furniture manufacturing dates back to the early 1800s and since its founding, Durham Furniture has remained in the face of the country’s shrinking manufacturing landscape and is one of the few solid wood furniture manufacturers remaining in Canada.
“We’re excited to celebrate Canada Day along with our employees who have helped keep Durham relevant in today’s home furnishings marketplace throughout North America,” said Luke Simpson, President and CEO of Durham Furniture. “We’re proud to be among Canada’s resilient home furnishings companies and we envision many more years of growth right here where we began.”
At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
