Perhaps it’s all in the name, but you have to love a company with the cohones to call themselves Invincible. Invincible Metal Solutions in this case. They do seem to have some luck.
Invincible Metal Furniture Solutions, doing business as Invincible,
opened its doors May 21, after Schenian purchased the assets of
Invincible Office Furniture for $2.1 million, after the century-old
company had gone into receivership. Schenian’s buy-out has saved most of the 75 employees jobs at the Franklin Street manufacturing plant.
Furniture manufacturers in the U.S. have had some problems, but as we’ve mentioned before, they can succeed if they really work at it. The old Invincible went into receivership, but that didn’t stop them from trying to improve.
“Throughout the receivership process our performance has improved
dramatically, as compared to the previous company," Nething stated.
The new company may be uniquely positioned because they held onto their most valuable asset…
“The highly trained workforce at Invincible has remained essentially
intact, and are looking forward to the new era of manufacturing under
the Invincible brand,” Diederichs stated.
And of course lean manufacturing will play a part.
Diederichs said Invincible would seek to expand its presence in underserved markets. “In
addition, Invincible will be looking to strengthen its product offering
while focusing on lean manufacturing initiatives, quality, and cutting
edge product development,” Diederichs stated.
Here’s hoping Invincible stays Invincible!
