As 2014 winds down we take a look at 4 major happenings at Manchester Wood this year.
For nearly four years customers of ManchesterWood.com have been asking for a catalog. This year we finally pulled together enough resources and time to produce what we feel is our best literature to date on who we are and what we presently offer. For decades we’ve made wholesale catalogs for retailers, but this year marked something very new… our first very own mail order catalog.
2. 33 New Products
Between our New for 2014 and New Fall 2014 arrivals, we added 33 new products – handcrafted right here at our mill – including popular expansions into Solid Cherry TV Tray Tables and Shaker Desks, unique items like the Compact Workstation Table and Multipurpose Coffee Table Nesting Set of 4, and additions to the classic Adirondack collection with our first outdoor dining sets.
3. ‘Shop Custom’ option added to site
Similar to our catalog, Shop Custom was added through customer demand. We’re a factory, and typically are set-up to make many of one item at a time. This year, through a great team here, we developed and implemented the opportunity to offer custom pieces to you within the parameters set on our site. We ship the fastest in American made solid wood furniture. Now in 2014, we also ship the fastest custom American made solid wood furniture too.
4. 38 years in business
In November 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 service to quality products always finding a home for not only 2014, but years to come. As Josh Miller said in his film, “Made in America means jobs in America,” and here is that demonstration.
