From the OW Lee website: "For over sixty years [since 1947], OW Lee has been dedicated to the design and production of fine handcrafted casual furniture. From their 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Ontario, California, artisans combine centuries-old techniques with state-of-the-art equipment to produce beautiful casual furniture.
Truly an American family tradition, OW Lee Company began in Pasadena, California by Oddist W. Lee in 1947 as a wrought-iron gate manufacturer for the luxurious estates of Southern California. Due to increased requests from local patio furniture store owners, Oddist began to design and sell high-end patio furniture directly. In 1954, he incorporated under the name OW Lee Company.
Oddist's son, Bob, joined his father after high school and continued in the business after Oddist retired. Throughout the 70's, 80's, and early 90's, Bob Lee and his wife Beverly, established OW Lee Company as a well known and reputable manufacturer in the ever growing casual furniture industry. In 2008 they were awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Casual Furnishings Association. It is reserved for individuals who have made exemplary contributions to the casual-furniture industry and to their communities.
The third generation of the Lee family maintains Oddist's commitment to quality almost 60 years later. Bob's son Brian, daughter Terri, and son-in-law Chris are continuing to build OW Lee into the premier name in casual furnishings. The OW Lee name stands for quality and as a family owned business, they have pledged to continue the tradition started in 1947."
