A‚A  The Company Kling Factories was operated as a family business between 1911 and 1962 in Chautauqua County, new york State, USA. Kling, an immigrant from Sweden, purchased the bankrupt Chautauqua Spring bed & Lounge Company in Mayville, New York and renamed it the Chautauqua Cabinet Company. By 1928, John Kling had purchased four additional factories in Chautauqua County, New York and the company was reorganized as the Kling Factories. These additions were The Frewsburg (NY) Furniture Company, The Herrick Manufacturing Company (Falconer, NY), The Brockton (NY) Furniture Company and the Crandall Panel Company (Brockton NY). In just seventeen years, John Kling built up the organization to sales of approximately $3 million in 1928.


His idea to have each of the company plants specialize in a particular furniture style would make Kling Factories one of the nationA???s largest volume producers of bedroom furniture.
The 1929 stock market crash and the ensuing great depression hit furniture manufacturers hard. In the depth of the depression in 1933, Kling Factories sales were reduced to $1.5 million due to price deflation and lower volume, but the company was marginally profitable.
Kling died, leaving the responsibility of managing the company to his sons Arvid (President) and Denold (Vice President).
Arvid had considerable experience in the furniture business; he began working in the factory in 1911 at age 19 and rose to be national sales manager. Through sound business management, including the introduction of more affordable lines of furniture, the two brothers brought the company through the depression while many Jamestown, N.Y.
The period from 1947 to 1960 represents the peak of the Kling Factories in volume and quality reputation.


Like many post war ventures the company took off nationally and was aided by advertising in magazines such as House Beautiful and Better Homes & Gardens. DenoldA???s four sons entered the family business and were assigned to responsible management positions. Kling Factories was sold in April 1962 to the Baumritter Corporation which later became Ethan Allen Furniture. It is also an example of how the hard work, dedication, and special skills of European immigrants contributed to the dynamic and prosperous nature of the U.S.
