Manchester Wood celebrating 38 years

Yesterday we celebrated 38 years as a Company, as well as the dedication of one 25-year employee and two 10-year employees.

Talk about a month celebrated in gratitude. Yesterday we celebrated our 38th anniversary as a company and took a moment to acknowledge the nearly half of our workforce who have been at Manchester Wood for 10-plus years, but also the special honoring of 25-year employee Garnet M. and new 10-year employees, Eric K. and John B.

It says a lot about the people who make these products. There is a dedication and commitment that’s not easy to find. A hope and service to quality products always finding a home for not only today, but years to come. As Josh Miller said, “Made in America means jobs in America,” and here yesterday was that demonstration.

We all take great pride in still making furniture in America, while China and Vietnam have disrupted our industry with lesser quality and priced goods. The bottom line is you won’t find American made hardwood furniture on the market today for a more reasonable price than what’s found here, and it’s because of the sacrifices we’ve endured that we stand here today. 38 years strong with men and women who care about what they do. Our Founder was entirely set not on margins, but on creating and enduring with American jobs… and we plan on always doing just that. I don’t think it can get much better. Thank you to our customers and amazing employees who consistently create what Manchester Wood is each and every day.

“To have a healthy family.”

“This year, we have all been grateful for a new prescription that we started giving to our daughter for her epilepsy has shown itself to be a God-send. Prior to starting this additional med, I was becoming worried about her even being able to live with us much longer.  Apparently, she had been having seizures in her sleep that were so bad, her entire day after was ruined as a result.”

“I am grateful for all of the people in the world living a vegan lifestyle. For the animals, for their health, and for our shared environment.”

“I am grateful for the fact that my family is well and happy, and that although they can sometimes be really aggravating (usually when they treat me with too many kid gloves!) they really seem to care as much about me!”

“I am grateful that I grew up in a time when the world was happier and safer (1950’s)  I am grateful that I had good parents who taught me about life, both good and bad.  I am grateful that I have met so many people in my travels through life who have added to my knowledge, both good and bad.  I am most grateful for the husband who shared my life for 37 years and also taught me many things……. all of them good!  I am grateful to the God who allowed me to have this life and to learn so much, and for the artistic talent He blessed me with so I could share my thoughts and feelings with others through my work.”

“I am thankful for my wonderful husband.”

“The things for which I am grateful would make a very long list.”

“Every day, I add something else to that list.”

“I am grateful for the contest. :-D”
