With manufacturing and distribution facilities in California, Florida, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin, Ashley is the world’s largest manufacturer of furniture and one of the world’s best-selling furniture store brands.

In collaboration with Statista, the statistics portal and industry ranking provider, Forbes conducted their annual survey of more than 50,000 American employees working for companies with more than 1,000 employees in America.

As a company, we work together to continuously improve and strive to be the best furniture company, which would not be possible without all of our employees.”

During this trying time, this recognition means even more to our organization as it comes directly from the great people who make our company great – our employees.”
