MCCONNELLSVILLE, N.Y. (YNN) — Gregory Harden says the secret of his family company’s 168 years of success is simple.
“We’ve got a lot of very talented people. We can do some woodworking and some craftsmanship that other people just can’t do,” said Harden, president and CEO of Harden Furniture.
He’s the fifth generation of the Harden family to run the company.
Harden Furniture still sits at the spot along Fish Creek where the family’s saw mill operated in the 1840s.
Congressman Richard Hanna visited the factory Wednesday to talk about challenges facing small businesses today.
