We are the classic story. It all started with making test tube drying racks in the basement. Our customers loved the quality and asked us to make other science accessories. It was the beginning of Diversified Woodcrafts, and we started producing furniture for the science market.
We continued to grow and develop a line of science laboratory furniture. We moved into a new, larger facility and operated out of this facility until a fire destroyed the manufacturing portion of the plant in March of 1995. Due to the resilience of our employees, we reopened utilizing temporary facilities four weeks later. The decision was made to build a new facility with an optimal manufacturing layout that would allow the company to continue to grow.
In October our new facility was opened and was four times larger than the original plant.
In October, Diversified Woodcrafts, Inc. was sold to JBC Holding Co. They are a privately held company and has brought about our affiliation with our sister company: John Boos & Company.
We entered the casework market and are continuing to expand our presence in that market. Today our tables, mobile labs, workstations, and casework can be found in schools, museums, and laboratories throughout the United States. We are proud of our growth and of the wide range of quality products that we produce.
Due to our continued growth, we more than doubled our manufacturing plant.
To reinforce our competitive edge, we consolidated our manufacturing facilities. We moved Shain Solutions to our Wisconsin manufacturing location. We now utilize our workforce along with our cutting-edge technology in all facets of manufacturing.
Now, with over 40 years of building quality furniture, we are the industry leader in educational furniture and casework. If you visit schools throughout the country, chances are you’ll find Diversified Woodcrafts desks, tables, cabinets and more! From our humble beginning to our 100,000 square foot modern manufacturing plant, it’s a story we are proud of.
