Manchester Wood, along with countless businesses and working folks faced a challenging 2010. It’s been a year that saw our countries economic decline reach new levels with further lay-offs, cut work time, and Washington’s trying attempts to bridge the gaps.
Most of us could debate (or agree) on the current affairs and handlings of our economic system, but regardless, there is so much to be thankful for this year.
For us, our loyal employees, clients, and customers have made everything worthwhile as we fight through these times with locally grown quality and service.
Manchester Wood has now been in service for 34 years with over half our staff being here for 10 years, and almost 25% have been here 20 years or more.
Quite a statement we feel, an evident result when you look at the character and strength of our employees.
As some might know, we’re a solid wood furniture manufacturing plant with our handcrafted pieces reaching customers directly through our online store, as well as in wholesale, selling to some of the greatest mail-order businesses in the World.
Our client and customer loyalty and respect for our work while keeping thoughtful American craftsmanship in existence means a great deal.
With all that said. The year 2011 arrives this Saturday, and we all couldn’t be more excited for this New Year.
We’ve hit the planning board often towards the end of this year and it’s safe to say 2011 will be our biggest year yet for our online store with expanding and new lines of furniture being announced every month. We’ll be working on a new Home Office line, expansion of our Outdoor collections, Kids furniture, and countless more furnishings that we hope brings warmth in-and-around your home.
New Media with more exposure in Multimedia formats will also see more light this coming year with video being added to our growing and evolving social networking sites. We hope it’ll bring a fresh and revealing look into our “mill” to see how we operate and produce our furniture.
So with all that said, from all of us at Manchester Wood, here’s to you and yours.
See ya next year.
