New York - Family-owned home textiles manufacturer Louis Hornick & Co. will celebrate its 95th anniversary during the fall 2013 New York Home Fashions Market.
Founded in 1918 by Louis Hornick, the company is now led by the third-generation in chairman and ceo Louis Hornick II. The fourth generation, Louis "Tripp" Hornick III, serves as chief operating officer.
"I do not believe my grandfather would have envisioned this anniversary back in 1918," said Louis Hornick II.
Tripp Hornick noted that Commerce Department statistics show only 2% of family businesses make it to the fourth generation. He added: "We have survived two World Wars, The Great Depression, The Korean and Vietnam Wars and now the Great Recession, and we don't just ‘trace or roots back' - we are the exact same company."
Details of the event will be announced closer to market week.
