After two generations of furniture manufacturing,
Bob and Belle Cooper founded The Uttermost Company in 1975, and it is
still 100% owned by the Cooper family. Bob and Belle continue to be involved
in the business, but are not active in day-to-day activities. Mac Cooper,
President/CEO, Taz Cooper, Exec VP/Sales Manager, and a strong management
team operate the business today.
Uttermost has enjoyed steady growth for the past 31 years, and now has
approximately 290 employees working in its Rocky Mount, Virginia factories
totaling 600,000 square feet. Uttermost also has a factory in China which
covers an entire city block. In May ’06, Uttermost will be fully
operational out of its state-of-the-art West Coast distribution center.
This West Coast facility has been added to increase distribution capacity,
provide faster shipping to West Coast Retailers, and reduce freight costs
to these Retailers.
Uttermost is proud to support many of the most prestigious home-furnishing
Retailers in the world with our products and service. The growth of Uttermost
is primarily due to their commitment to three things: superior service
to Retailers, maximizing the value of the products we make through better
design and sharp pricing, and treating our employees, sales representatives,
and designers as partners in business. This commitment stems from their
stated mission and culture. Uttermosts mission is simple, to make great
home accessories at a reasonable price. This has been their guiding light
from the day they started over 31 years ago.
Uttermost manufactures mirrors, art, metal wall art, lamps, accessories,
clocks and lighting fixtures.
