A company best known for producing custom wrought iron tables and chairs, Brown Jordan steadily evolved to manufacture original furniture designs made of extruded, wrought and cast aluminum, stainless steel, teak, and woven resin. Sales were principally to interior designers specifying quality furnishings to both contract and residential clientele.

A reputation that distinguishes itself as the most recognized name in the casual furniture industry. Others have noticed.

Wabash Valley was founded in 1978 by the Shilling family serving the agricultural industry as a manufacturer of confinement livestock equipment. The company was known for its plastisol coated swine flooring which was extremely durable and offered the utmost in animal comfort. In 1989 the company hit a home run when it introduced a line of outdoor site amenities consisting of plastisol coated picnic tables, benches and trash receptacles. These products became so popular with municipalities, schools, amusement parks and other commercial applications that it soon exited the agricultural segment of its business to devote all its resources to the manufacture of outdoor furniture.

When Wabash Valley joined Brown Jordan International in 2000, it had become the recognized leader and world’s largest manufacturer of plastisol coated site furniture. Located in Silver Lake, Indiana, the company employs 165 people at its ultra-modern 235,000 sq, ft facility.

In the spring of 2007, Wabash Valley introduced Urbanscape, beautiful outdoor furniture with high-end designs and extreme durability – all at an incredibly competitive price. This architecturally designed line will feature our new faux-wood finishes.

Since 1975, Winston Furniture has been a major fashion design innovator and service manufacturing leader in the casual furniture industry. The unsurpassed quality of Winston outdoor furniture is well known.

Winston’s Furniture serves as a prime example of superior American-made product. Winston’s 250,000 square foot, state-of-the-art aluminum manufacturing facility in Haleyville, Alabama, is one of the most technologically advanced facilities of its kind in the casual furniture industry.

What began in autumn of 1975 as Jerry Rega and Company would lay the foundation in building the brand Texacraft®.

At the time, simple tubular frames with vinyl strapping were the order of the day. Even though the offering was initially small, the quality of the products, along with superior customer service, kept customers happy and returning for reorders. After 40 years at the helm of a brand to which he has devoted his career, Jerry Rega chalks Texacraft’s success up to a commitment to customer satisfaction, steadfast support of his long-time sales team and production staff, and passion for this evolving industry.

Texacraft is among the largest manufacturers of commercial outdoor furniture. For over four decades, Texacraft has produced the highest quality, most durable furniture in the industry to style-conscious clients aimed specifically at apartments, condominiums, hotels, and country clubs and is the preferred manufacturer for most of the county’s largest REITS.

Having a designer pallet of over 200 fabrics and 20 frame finish options allows customized furniture for any environment.

Being good stewards of the environment is something that the Texacraft Brand aggressively pursues. As a manufacturer that produces products to be used primarily outside it is imperative that we do our part to preserve the world’s delicate ecosystem. Texacraft’s offering includes many products that can be recycled as well as products that are made from recycled materials. Our green initiatives continue to evolve with the anticipation that there will always be ways to enhance our manufacturing processes to work towards our commitment to being a green company. We look forward to those challenges.

Tropitone's goal is to provide our customers what they want, when they want it – the first time, every time.

Baker bought the Sarasota Redwood Furniture Company and switched from redwood to aluminum for the frames of his outdoor patio furniture. The Tropitone Furniture Company was originally established to serve the commercial market for outdoor patio furniture that included hotels, motels, clubs and resorts.

Tropitone® brand outdoor patio furniture could soon be found around the lawns, gardens, patios and pools of commercial and residential properties around the country. Today, Tropitone has full-service manufacturing and distribution operations in Sarasota, FL and Irvine, CA, providing Tropitone the ability to quickly respond to ever-changing marketplace conditions for outdoor patio furniture by being close to North American customers.
