Our Story: How We Got Here
Terrell Enterprises, Inc. was founded by Bobby Terrell in 1975, in order to fill a need for providing quality furniture and service to the education market in Alabama. As Terrell Enterprises lone salesman, Bobby began his journey with only two product lines: Sico mobile cafeteria tables and Charles W. Rice window shades. He believed in hard work, establishing sincere relationships and friendships with his customers and going above and beyond for them.
These beliefs and values have become the foundation of Terrell Enterprises today. Since our humble beginnings, Terrell Enterprises now not only provides furniture solutions for schools, but also for commercial, healthcare, hospitality and government applications. In 1980, with the establishment of our Casework Division, we expanded our product line to include custom cabinets and casework solutions. In 1995, we partnered with Sport Court, allowing us to provide a safe, high performance modular sport surface to our customers.
Currently we represent over 50 manufacturers including well known brands like Brodart, Scholar Craft, Sico, HON, ABCO and Global. With our wide range of products and experience, we have the ability to match any style, budget and application. Over the years, we have worked with our vendors and with the Alabama State Purchasing Department to get our products on the Alabama state contract in order to make the purchasing process easier for our customers.
At Terrell Enterprises, we pride ourselves on the relationships we cultivate with our customers, as well as the relationships we have with our vendors and our employees. We are family owned and operated, and each member of our team is like part of the family. Terrell Enterprises would not be where it is without those that have worked so hard, both in the past and present, and we owe our success to them and to our customers who we will continue to work hard for in the future.
