Our History

For over seven decades, our innovative mentality has helped us deliver outstanding products for our clients. Haworth has grown over multiple generations of family leadership, powered by an entrepreneurial spirit.

In 1948, G.W. Haworth invested funds from his parents’ life savings to turn his garage woodworking shop into a full-time business. Within a few years, G.W. began making office furniture. His son, Dick Haworth, invented pre-wired panels, a significant innovation in workplace technology. That invention propelled Haworth into an international company with a diverse portfolio of products over the next few decades.

Dick became chairman in 1994 and eventually passed the torch to his son, Matthew Haworth, in 2009. Under Matthew’s leadership, Haworth has continued to create products that push the workplace forward, acquired legacy design brands, and solidified our commitment to sustainability.


Our Values

Haworth put pen to paper in 1976 to craft our company values. These values guide our company, defining our business behavior and informing our decisions. They are the foundation for today’s activities and tomorrow’s growth.



Haworth is headquartered in Holland, Michigan, and we have members—our term for employees—all over the world. We offer competitive compensation and opportunities to grow.


We publish our latest commentary and research about the world of work, including topics like workplace performance, inspired design, and how spaces can contribute to well-being.
