Charleston Forge’s dedication to the rustic artistry of its custom handcrafted furniture is something consumers don’t see much anymore. The company is one of the country’s premier manufacturers of iron bakers racks, bar stools, dining tables, chairs and small iron furniture items, and its metal furniture is made in the mountains of North Carolina.
“The fact is, there are not a lot of others out there who are doing upper end metal products in the United States,” co-owner Rick Grant says. “Much of that went overseas, but we’ve been able to transform into a boutique manufacturer that still does products for furniture retailers’ showroom floors and also does a lot of custom work for designers. We can turn items around quickly, and we’re also involved in a lot of contract projects. Our ability to customize is what keeps us alive.”

Dennis Redmer, vice president of operations at MJR Digital Cinema, explains that even though the movie is what brings people through the doors, the concession stand plays a large part in keeping the doors open.
Although it didn’t appear so at the time, leaving Progress Industries – a tank manufacturer then located in Arthur, Ill. – has worked out all right for Gery Conlin, president and owner of Mid-State Tank Co. Inc. “In 1986, I had a disagreement with the managers, left the company and started Mid-State,” Conlin recounts. “As it turned out, it was the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Celebrating its 60th anniversary, Leon’s Manufacturing Co. Inc. President John Malinowski ascribes the company’s longevity to several factors. “I think the fact that it has been privately owned and a family company is one of the main reasons the company has been able to survive,” he emphasizes. “What I would say are our extraordinary employees – some of the longtime people we’ve been able to have as partners here for the last several decades – have been key to that.
