The History of


Made in the USA — 40 Years!

Henry Kober moved from New York City to the White Mountains of New Hampshire in 1970 to complete his doctoral dissertation and raise a family. He and his wife Elizabeth moved into an 1800s farmhouse with a large barn where Henry began making furniture and selling it to retail stores. What started as a passion grew into a business, and in 1976 he expanded operations from the barn to the old Saranac Glove factory in Littleton, NH.

The company incorporated in 1983 and purchased an additional 150,000 sq.ft facility including 8 dry kilns in Lisbon, NH. DCI launched into the contract furniture business by earning a Government contract to supply 15,000 bunk beds worldwide. The following year we won the Single Award Contract for bunkable beds, producing more than 300,000 beds from 1984-1999.

In 1987, DCI purchased a state-of-the-art hardwood sawmill in Royalton, Vermont. This provided a competitive advantage, put DCI in control of its supply chain, and brought the company to the forefront of environmental sustainability. Keeping pace with the growing demand for student and military housing furniture DCI further expanded to include a 85,000 sq.ft. facility in Lumberton, North Carolina.

In 1993 and 1997 Henry’s sons, David and Amos joined the company. The DCI team now includes more than 200 people in 5 states. Projects range in size from a couple sets of furniture for a small school to multimillion-dollar military housing contracts worldwide. While DCI continually evolves to stay at the front of market demands, the company maintains the traditional values it was built upon – responsibly made, quality products and exceptional service driven by a long-term and close customer relationship.

Manufacturing


DCI offers you the best product at competitive prices because we manage the entire production process from forest to floor. This unique vertical integration allows us to provide you with the most sustainable suite of products in our industry.

We can continually monitor quality and maximize efficiencies because we control the entire manufacturing process from standing timber to final product. You can download our Guide To Sustainable Residence Hall Furniture here.



We purchase logs directly from state regulated forests that adhere to the highest environmental standards. This ensures we are using the most sustainably grown and harvested timber available.

Our sawmill in Vermont processes these logs, primarily consisting of ash, oak, and maple, into rough cut lumber. The lumber is graded by tree species, thickness, and length according to standards set by the National Hardwood Lumber Association (NHLA) and shipped to our factory in Lisbon, New Hampshire.

For organizations that own standing hardwood timber, we can provide a “chain of custody” for logs harvested from the customer’s property. We’ve been doing this at Dartmouth College. To read more click HERE.
