Regency, Inc. is located at 2375 Romig Road in Akron, Ohio. Started by Scott and Norma Summerville as a retail office products business in 1940 and located on Broadway in Akron, Summervilles’ became one of the area’s first used office furniture showrooms, and one of the first sources for mid-market furniture in Northeast Ohio.
When Norma stepped down as president in 1987, she was succeeded by her son and the company’s current president, John “Skip” Summerville. Skip saw a need in the office furniture market for a source of good quality products at an affordable price and, unable to locate such a source, decided to remake Summervilles’ into this source, transforming it into Regency, Inc., a virtual manufacturer. Moving Regency’s five employees to its current location on Romig Road more than a decade ago, Regency has now grown to more than three times its size and is a leading, national third-party B2B retailer of office furnishings. The family legacy at Regency continued when Skip’s son, Aaron, joined the team at its Romig Road location as vice president and chief financial officer.
