Come join us for a fun lunch hour touring the Steelcase Wood Plant! We will have a private tour of the plant during its operational hours. Steelcase fabricates wood furniture, from simple work surfaces to wooden storage units. This business is high complexity, low volume and therefore you will not see assembly lines pumping out high amounts of product. Our typical takt times are closer to 5 minutes for producing a unit.
The processes you will see will include:
Creating a veneer board (putting strips of wood onto particle board)
Sizing of the board (cutting length/width)
CNC routers used to cut holes and special features
Edgebanders to hide raw edges
Glue/Dowel construction for assembly
Please RSVP to email@example.com by Tuesday, October 9th so we have a head count for the tour. Feel free to bring a friend, spouse, or significant other, and we hope to see you there!
