Hello everyone,

For this week’s final discussion board video, I choose to do my research on what was once a small startup company in 1948 which was called Modern Products. Today it has become known as Haworth Incorporated; a multi-billion-dollar company located in Holland Michigan.  This company was started by a young 34-year-old man by the name Gerrard Wendell Haworth. In 1945, wanting to earn some extra money to help send his kids to college, Haworth decided to start a woodworking company in his garage. And at the time he was an industrial arts teacher at the local high school.
