Woodhaven Furniture Industries, Aaron’s manufacturing segment, was established by the Company in 1982. Integrated manufacturing enables us to control critical features such as the quality, cost, delivery, styling, durability and quantity of our furniture products, and we believe this provides an integration advantage over our competitors.
Our Woodhaven Furniture Industries division produces upholstered living-room furniture including contemporary sofas, chairs, and modular sofa and ottoman collections in a variety of natural and synthetic fabrics, and bedding including standard sizes of mattresses and box springs.
The furniture designed and produced by this division incorporates features that we believe result in reduced production costs, enhanced durability and improved shipping processes all relative to furniture we would otherwise purchase from third parties. These features include standardized components, reduced number of parts, more resilient foam, durable fabrics and sturdy frames which translate to longer life and higher residual value and devices that allow sofas to stand on end for easier and more efficient transport.
The division also provides replacement covers for all styles and fabrics of its upholstered furniture, as well as other parts, for use in reconditioning leased furniture that has been returned. Woodhaven Furniture Industries consists of five furniture manufacturing plants and seven bedding manufacturing facilities totaling approximately 819,000 square feet of manufacturing capacity.
