The typical day starts with setting up the equipment, cutting and shaping wooden parts, and verifying dimensions. Next we will apply fasteners and adhesives and assemble the parts into finished units. Finally install hardware, and fit products for glass, metal trims, electrical components, and stone. We work 4, 10-hour days with over time on Fridays. It is fast paced and our associates are involved in all aspects of manufacturing.
