Established on January 1, 2002, Paladin Industries, Inc., was a long-time dream for founders Tim and Elaine Bolick. This duo started their careers in the furniture industry more than 35 years ago when they opened several retail furniture stores in the Carolinas. Furthering their experience, they moved to the manufacturing side of the business and enjoyed distinguished careers working with some of North Carolina’s largest manufacturers of high-quality upholstery and upholstered fabric vendors. Backed with extensive experience and knowledge – plus a passion for furniture making – the Bolicks turned their dream into a reality and shifted their focus to crafting unique, fashion-forward furniture pieces designed for comfort, quality and value. After only three years in business, Paladin was named as one of the fastest growing manufacturers in America by Entrepreneur Magazine.
Our company is located in Hiddenite, N.C., a small, scenic town nestled in the foothills of the Brushy Mountains, just 30 miles north of Hickory. Offering heritage, history and charm, this area sits in the heart of America’s furniture manufacturing and has been home for generations to some of the industry’s finest furniture craftsmen whom we employ.
With years of experience and an unwavering passion for furniture, hand-crafted quality is in our DNA. Each piece of Paladin-made furniture is meticulously hand-cut, sewn and bench-made to our customer’s unique specifications. As a Disabled Veteran owned company, we’re proud of the furniture we craft and distribute to fine retailers, design boutiques and private label dealers, domestically and internationally.
