Manfred Steinfeld and an associate purchased the bankrupt Great Northern Chair Company in 1951 and renamed it Shelby Williams Industries. During Steinfeld’s leadership, Shelby Williams grew into the country’s leading seating company serving the contract and institutional market. In 1999, Steinfeld sold Shelby Williams to Falcon Products. In 2002, with several long-time colleagues, Steinfeld founded Daniel Paul Chairs.
