The business was renamed Orange Furniture Craftsmen, making "novelty" and upholstered furniture. In 1940, the White Furniture Company bought the plant. The White Furniture Company's main factory and headquarters was in nearby Mebane.
Since 1991, Hillsborough's former White Furniture Company factory has been occupied by Sports Endeavors (formerly Eurosport), a soccer equipment supply company.
