Forged By Family
What makes family businesses unique? It is the alignment of family, business, and ownership coupled with the opportunities and many challenges those present. Family businesses are the drivers of the world economy, from the corner store to the Fortune 500. Often misunderstood, they are the fabric that binds our local communities and the innovators that create nearly 80 percent of all new jobs.
With roots dating back to 1906, Charter Manufacturing is a fourth-generation family business. Learn how they have remained innovative, diversified, and an industry leader, all while defying many of the odds that have beset their peers.
