1948: Driven by his dream to start a business, school teacher Gerrard Wendell (G.W.) Haworth borrows $10,000 of his parents’ life savings to expand a woodworking operation in his family’s garage. A skilled craftsman, he builds a variety of products, hoping to earn enough money to put his children through college. Modern Products is born.
1954: A stranger strides into G.W.’s office, drops a set of drawings on his desk and asks, “Can you build these?” The plans detail an innovative office partition system designed for the United Auto Workers headquarters in Detroit. G.W. agrees, wins the business, and the huge order catapults his company forward in both partitions and moveable wall products. He thinks, “I could build a business around this type of product” - and does.
1976: A pivotal year for the business, the company transitioned from Modern Partitions to Haworth, Inc. With G.W.’s blessing, Dick Haworth takes the helm and drives for growth, increasing the company’s size by 400 percent over the next 20 years. The company introduces a new pre-wired panel design, sells its partition business, pioneers strategic planning, and introduces the Haworth Values.
