We take our environmental responsibilities seriously and believe they should encompass what is made, how it’s made, what it’s made from, and how employees and customers are treated along the way.
All manufacturing occurs in our Westbrook workshop using skilled local labor. Our team is made of craftspeople who’ve been with the company an average of 15 years. We love what we do, and we’ve been doing it now for 40+ years.
Our furniture is designed to maximize the utilization of raw materials and minimize the production of waste. Large panels are cut using computer optimized software to maximize yield, and many of our smaller products incorporate “waste” material. Good news for the earth; not so much for employee wood stoves during cold Maine winters.
All materials – from kiln dried hardwoods to recycled composites – are free of any added formaldehyde and meet California’s 2009 clean air standards, the strictest production standards in the world.
Our Local First approach to sourcing materials means that our wood products are cultivated and produced in the US and Canada, and our durable, water-based finishes are made from scratch in nearby Vermont.
