From Hog Farm to Furniture Store
I guess you could say that Witmer’s Furniture started back in 2004 in Lancaster County, PA. Matthew Witmer had just lost his job as a hog farm manager due to the market collapse and he was looking for a new career path. He applied to a small store specializing in locally handcrafted furniture, in the heart of Amish Country and found out that not only were they hiring but they had recently been bought by another company and their 2,000 sq ft showroom was going to become a 20,000 sq ft showroom! They also owned a furniture finishing facility and here is where Matthew learned a lot of what he knows about wood furniture.
Matthew started in the finishing shop learning wood species, stain colors, specialty finishes and more and then moved on to helping set up and display the new showroom. He moved into sales and then added delivery scheduling and basic management duties for a time.
He then was transferred back to the finishing shop as the facility manager tasked with bringing in new clients, expanding the services of the shop and managing daily schedules and deadlines. Under his leadership, the finishing facility brought on new clients of custom cabinets, high-end antique reproductions, furniture, and garage doors with polyurethane finishes. Lots of study into techniques and applications along with traveling to international wood shows allowed him to increase his expertise in quality wood finishing and truly know what it takes to make a quality product.
Fast forward 10+ years and Matthew and his family now live in Memphis, MO and Matthew was remembering his love of wood furniture and contemplating applying for a position at Oakwood Industries when they came to him asking if he would consider becoming an independent Oakwood dealer. They wanted to go strictly to manufacturing and wholesaling and needed someone to continue to service their 30 years worth of retail customers.
After talking to a number of his old contacts, Matthew decided they would convert the existing building they had into a furniture store and so Witmer’s Furniture was established. As an independent dealer, Witmer’s Furniture carries the full line of Oakwood products plus other lines of Amish and Mennonite shops to offer a full line of options. You will also find some leather upholstered furniture and Dutch Craft Mattresses in the showroom.
Today finds Matthew and his wife, Monica, doing things like getting fabric from the upholstery company to put on Amish made dining room chairs, walking customers through the steps of selecting wood species, distressing levels, stain or paint colors, fabric and leather selections, finding a quality mattress or that lawn furniture for the deck with a swing set for the grandchildren. And possibly a few other things…
Matt and Monica’s two boys help out as well, when they are not in school, from answering the phone to trash removal and helping with the deliveries, going along to shows etc. Figure they will be where the action is!
We hope you will be as blessed to deal with us here at Witmer’s Furniture as we are to deal with each of you, that you will feel that you are treated with integrity and respect, and will want to do business with us repeatedly because of the quality and consistency that we will purpose to give each and every time
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
Matthew, Monica, Bradley & Jeremiah Witmer
