In 1969, bill and dottie coley set out to manufacture quality american-made furniture that they would use in their home. So they opened a 7500 square foot factory, hired 10 people and accomplished exactly what they set out to do – and so very much more. In 1972, chic robinson joined the team as executive vice president in charge of financial, production, and administrative functions and helped propel lee to a new level. For over 44 years, lee industries has had a mission to create innovatively styled, high-quality home furnishings.
