Michigan-based Art Van Furniture has expanded to the Mid-Atlantic region in a big way with the acquisition Levin Furniture and Wolf Furniture, two century-old family-owned companies based in Pennsylvania.
“Today’s acquisitions of these two well-established furniture retailers—both intricately woven into the fabric of their communities—underscores a transformative new era of thoughtful expansion at Art Van Furniture,” stated Kim Yost, president and CEO of Art Van Furniture. “From their commitment to their customers to their long-standing histories and corporate cultures, Levin and Wolf are a perfect fit for Art Van’s growing family of brands.
Wolf Furniture was co-founded in 1902 by Charles Wolf and Jon Fox, and is currently led by CEO and fourth-generation family member, Doug Wolf. The company operates 18 showroom stores, including one in Leesburg.
Levin and Wolf Furniture will both maintain their names and all current management teams plus staff will remain in place. All Levin and Wolf customer accounts and product warranties will continue as well.
With the acquisitions, Van becomes a top 10 national furniture retailer based on sales, with 176 stores in nine states and $1.3 billion in expected annual sales.
