Ray Allegrezza -- Furniture Today, October 15, 2013
ATHENS, Tenn. - Hackney Home Furnishings and its two companies, H.Home and Holland House, have announced a strategic alliance with Mississippi-based Davis Furniture.
The alliance will result in Davis Furniture bringing its years of experience as a manufacturer of domestic upholstery to Hackney Home Furnishings with ensuing products coming to the market under the moniker of Davis Home.
As a part of the agreement, Hunter Davis, who most recently was president of Davis Furniture, has joined the management team at Hackney Home Furnishings as vice president of sales and merchandising, a new position.
Hackney Home Furnishings will add to its manufacturing operations all of the capacity at Davis' 140,000 square-foot upholstery factory in Houlka, Miss.
Davis has a national reputation for producing and selling showood upholstery, and at the upcoming High Point Market, Hackney Home Furnishings, doing business as Davis Home will introduce six new upholstery groups.
Additionally, the company will show several other new groups with updated styles and fabrics, all of which will be part of its quick-ship warehouse program.
This alliance also enables the companies to integrate and expand the strong assortment of imported case goods from David Direct into the offerings of Holland House, officials said.
"This is an exciting opportunity for Davis Furniture to join forces with the Hackney corporation," said Hunter Davis. "The alliance allows us not only to continue to manufacture upholstery in Houlka but we will also be manufacturing our goods in Hackney's facility here.
"Being part of the team with Hackney Home and Holland House really opens the door for us to not only take what we do to the next level, but to seek out new product categories in the near future," Davis said, adding, "and our customers can count on us for the same strong service, design and support that they always have because we've kept all the same people as we've joined forces with this great company."
