Haworth began in 1948 by launching Modern Products, a small manufacturer of custom wood products. In 1954 they began manufacturing modular office partitions, predecessors of today’s panel systems. In 1971, Haworth introduced Modern Office Modules (MOM). Offering the industry’s first acoustical panel and universal panel hinge-dramatically increasing the flexibility and responsiveness of modular office environments. 1976 saw the introduction of ERA-I®, the world’s first prewired modular office furniture panel. This panel revolutionizes office environments by enabling users to access power where it’s needed, without extension cords and hard wiring. In the same year they also introduce monocoque panel construction, similar to process used in airplane wings, that produces exceptionally strong panel without stress points. With 1981 came the move to new corporate headquarters in Holland, Michigan. 1986 saw the introduction of The Power Base®, the industry’s first eight-wire power system with three dedicated circuits. This enables users to dedicate power to specific uses and reduces destructive electrical interference.
