Why Hartford? How did you decide on the location for your business?
Conklin is a leader in sustainable furniture solutions. We are constantly considering ways to make our operations and our products more sustainable and accessible. We have been open and operating since 1981 just over the boarder in Holyoke, MA. We have offices in Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania and wanted to close the gap with Connecticut. We believe that Hartford is that bridge, with its diversity and a home to some of the largest corporations in the state, we would be honored to be part of this historical community.
