Best Home Furnishings (Best) has chosen to expand operations in Orange County at their Paoli location. Best currently employs 44 employees in Paoli with primary function of cutting and sewing fabrics to be shipped to their other facilities for furniture production. They have had a presence in Paoli for 20 years.

Best will be expanding operations which will create additional jobs and increase production at this facility to be more than “cut & sew”.  The increased production will create as many as 100 to 125 new jobs over an extended hiring period and will bring new types of jobs to this location which includes assembly, upholstery, shipping, receiving, maintenance, etc.  

New employees will undergo a significant amount of training to fulfill the jobs.  Upholstery positions typically require up to 12 weeks of training; sewing positions typically require up to 26 weeks of training.  
The Best Home Furnishings Career Fair is scheduled to be
Wednesday November 18th.  
The career fair will be at the Paoli facility,
located at 1700 W. Willowcreek Road
from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. EST.
Best Chairs, Inc. (dba/ Best Home Furnishings) has been in operation since 1962 when it was originally founded in southern Indiana.  Best has continuously been owned and operated by the Lange family, with their headquarters located in Ferdinand. They employ over 850 hard-working, highly skilled craftsmen who take pride in building furniture that lives up to the name.  The expansion of the Paoli facility will not only grow Best Home Furnishings, it will also strengthen the company’s manufacturing presence in Orange County. “Manufacturing is a leading industry for us,” said Kristal Painter, Executive Director of OCEDP, “As we grow this industry, we will see more opportunities for business expansion and attraction in our Area.”

 The Town of Paoli is extremely pleased with the plans for expansion. Mylea Pluris, Paoli town Council Member noted “the expansion project will greatly benefit our community by creating more job opportunities and allowing us to grow and prosper locally.”
Partners in this project include the Indiana Economic Development Corp. (IEDC), Orange County Economic Development Partnership (OCEDP), and the Town of Paoli.
