Cory Home Delivery, a third-generation family owned and operated home delivery company, is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year.
To mark the occasion, the company is hosting a gala at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 27 at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, with guests including industry dignitaries, longtime associates, family members, friends and company representatives.
"We are humbled and proud to bring industry notables and friends together to celebrate this special moment," said CEO Patrick Cory, grandson of founder Joseph Cory and son of chairman of the board Joe Cory Sr.
The gala will include a cocktail hour, dinner, dancing, entertainment and a short program honoring the people and the events that have impacted the company's 80 years in business.
Cory Home Delivery was founded by Joseph Cory in 1934. Based in Secaucus, N.J., the company serves many of the top 100 furniture, appliance and electronics retailers in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
According to a company press release, Cory Home Delivery dispatches a modern fleet of 500 customized vehicles daily, delivering more than $2.1 billion of consumer products to more than 1.6 million consumers annually.
"As my grandfather would often say, in our business there are only two things of importance," Patrick Cory said. "One is the customer, and the other is the furniture. If you take care of customers, they come back. If you take care of the furniture, it doesn't. It's just that simple - and just that difficult."
