Our Vision

We make the most effective book displays in the world. And we do it in our lean manufacturing facility using solar power and reclaimed materials ... while being a second chance employer, championing employees in local recovery programs.


Since 1974, we've been the gold standard in retail display fixtures – retail display shelves, tables, display cabinets, bookcases, work counters, gondolas, micro markets, slatwall and more. Independent retailers who bought our products 30 years ago are still using them. We enjoy being part of that kind of success. ​

Made in America with sustainable, green methods and materials by skilled people in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. We're growing craftsmen, growing stores and growing communities.
