Century Furniture Honors Employees at Annual Banquet
Hickory, NC-based Century Furniture, a third generation family owned and operated company, recently hosted their annual awards banquet at Catawba Country Club to honor 134 employees who represent 1,855 total years of service to the company.
Ranging from 5 through 45 years of service, the annual banquet honors associates for the completion of a 5-year anniversary with a luncheon and bonus commemorating their longevity with the Century Family. Two employees, Keith Childers and Cora Conner, completed 45 years of service.
“Recognizing the contribution and dedication of our associates to our company is one of the highlights of the year for me,” said Alex Shuford, III, CEO and president of Century. “I am always inspired when we recognize individuals who have worked with Century for 10,15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years. Their knowledge and understanding of our culture is invaluable and makes Century what it is both internally and externally in the furniture we make. We look to them to lead and teach the next generation of people coming into our workforce.”
