In 2010, Stanley Furniture made a bold decision to buck the trend of our times, and bring production of a furniture line back to our shores. A challenge that seems insurmountable for multiple reasons to a multitude of industries. This is why Doucet Machineries Inc. and Weinig USA jointly agreed on a company whom we felt was a bright example of a Commitment to Excellence through Technology. Because how else can you combat those challenges without a commitment to an excellent product and the technology to produce that product.
Stanley Furniture is known throughout the industry for products of traditional construction, with superior quality. Their "goal" was to successfully bring the Young America line of furniture back to US shores. Their challenges were many, but certainly included "Reducing costs while guaranteeing the same quality for which they are known". Multiple technology investments were made to give this dream a chance: "New Packaging Systems", "Finishing Solutions", "Material Handling Projects", "Advanced Rough Milling Solutions", they did not refuse to dream big to achieve their success.
With these investments made, Stanley Furniture now proving that a product can be "Made in the USA" and be successful and profitable.
