Business Overview:

This successful 75-year-old family-owned company is in the lamp shade manufacturing industry. They are strictly a B2B sales model, with longevity with most of its clients. Products are made on-site in its factory located in the NY/Tri-State area.

This company is a boutique high-end quality manufacturer. Their shades dominate booths at several prestigious trade shows in the ‘design arena’. Customers include domestic lamp manufacturers, lighting stores, hospitality, and professional artisans. The value of “Made in America” is a must for customers in this space. Imports cannot compete with the superior-quality and attention to detail that high-end users of its products demand. There are very few top-tier manufacturers left in the USA. This company dominates the upscale market in this arena.

All its products are made to order; there are no unsold products in inventory. Extensive materials and parts inventories give them an efficient, streamlined manufacturing operation. It is “continuous flow” manufacturing, where larger and smaller lots flow through together.

This company boasts one of the most advanced lamp shade manufacturer computer systems in the United States. It has custom-developed, sophisticated networked software that allows them to track and record all the details of an order. Every shade lot is scanned at every step in the process, which gives real-time production info and quality control accountability. The system maintains an accurate virtual inventory that manages the purchasing and receiving of materials and parts. The price quote routine looks up the last price paid for parts and determines the labor time for each operation, for 95% of the items ordered.
