Introduction to Trendler

Trendler, Inc. is a family-owned and operated manufacturer of finished furniture pieces and furniture components. We have been trusted around the world for providing high-quality swivels, chairs, and barstools customized to our customers’ needs. Our family has made dependable swivels and seating products in the U.S.A. since 1932. Our wide-ranging knowledge and generations of experience help to create furniture that our customers can feel confident investing in. Trendler provides everything from components parts to finished chairs and barstools and delivers (with short lead time) the highest quality and most dependable products.

Our business began in 1932 as Trendler Metal Products on the south side of Chicago. In 1962, Anton Gfesser Sr. acquired Trendler just 10 years after immigrating to the U.S. Anton ran our business successfully and in1988, we went global to help meet the demand for American made furniture components around the world. We moved into our current facility near Midway Airport in Chicago in 1997 and changed our name from Trendler Components to Trendler, Inc. in 1997. Over the years, we expanded our product offerings from metal products and components to include finished wood and metal chairs and barstools. We are also one of the largest manufacturers of swivels in the world.

Today, Trendler is run by Anton Gfesser Sr.’s four sons who are committed to continuing the tradition of innovation, quality, and service.
