Green from the Inside Out
We are committed to minimizing our impact on the environment, now and in the future. All our branches are EFEC (Enhancing Furniture’s Environmental Culture) registered, and we are always seeking more environmentally sound manufacturing processes to ensure success through innovation and technology.
We began our green efforts in 2008, and have since realized significant reductions in energy usage, raw materials, and waste. In 2011, we were a finalist for the SAGE Award for excellence in sustainable business practices. In 2014, our branch in High Point, NC, achieved zero-waste status.
Continuing the tradition of being leaders in the industry and our communities, five of our branches have also received state awards. However, we are not content with only changing our facilities. Many of our employees attend community-wide events, visit local schools to help educate others, and adopt these practices in their own home.
Our Furniture Technical Center is well equipped for testing the durability and compression of individual springs, spring assemblies, cushions, and upholstered furniture. We can compare your standard construction to a proposed design, determine the life cycle of a new or existing design, check foam density and ILD, and measure frame stress.
Our full range of services includes product installation, frame conversion, and field service for seating, motion, and sleeper designs. We can assist you in sales presentations as well as engineering and design support.
Our technicians and designers will work with your team to design new prototypes, improve current designs, or expand a design concept. Once we understand your needs, our creative team will work toward finding the solution. Your input is the first step on the road to innovation.
