About Us



Big Bear Chair is a family owned and operated business based in York, Maine.  My oldest son Charles a recent business school graduate (University of New England) assists in the shop heading up production efforts.  My wife Trish (Better Half), runs the entire back end of the business and keeps us All in line!  Our other three sons, George, Franklin and Moseley help intermittingly as needed when home.
