The History of
The history of Golden Technologies is a story that defines the American dream. Founded in 1985 by Robert Golden, Sr., and Fred Kiwak, Golden Technologies was founded on the pledge to “build it right the first time,” a motto that still holds true today. In fact, that promise is proudly displayed on a banner hanging above our manufacturing floor in Old Forge, PA, reminding our team members every day of the commitment we have to our consumers and retailers.
Golden and Kiwak began manufacturing lift chairs in a one-car garage in Pittston, PA, a small town where families worked hard to survive as the Pennsylvania coal mining era was ending. They partnered with some of the finest craftsmen in the region and worked together to design and build lift chairs that would withstand years of use. As their reputation for quality spread, the business grew, and quickly became a family operation, employing several members of the Golden and Kiwak families. Robert Golden’s son, Richard, was one of the company’s first employees who was named CEO in 1991, a position he continues to hold today.
Robert Golden, Sr. retired from the day to day activities, and passed away peacefully in 2022. Robert, “Bubba,” might not have known it at the time, but he has left a legacy of improving thousands of people’s lives. Robert’s passion for furniture and business inspired so many, and grew a new generation that his children and grandchildren continue to carry forward today. Kiwak continues to be actively involved as our Vice President of Research and Development.
