Craftmaster was the vision of two native North Carolinians, Jack Stokes and Steve Lackey, who had a goal of building the finest quality upholstered furniture in their price range that is fashionable, yet affordable. The company has grown from 20 people to over 500 employees today. Many in the Craftmaster family have been with the company for over 25 years, some from the very beginning. Craftmaster was purchased in May 2006 by Samson Holdings and has continued to grow its business, making Craftmaster one of the most well known upholstery manufacturers in the country.
The work ethic and pride in craftsmanship is alive and well here in the foothills of North Carolina and is evident in every piece of upholstery that is made at our factories. We have over 400,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing and are the third largest employer in Alexander County.
