Business is booming for National Woodwork
as it continues to expand in the Pittsburgh region. The company has recently moved to a new, 10,000 square-foot facility near Crafton, and is currently building a new showroom in Upper St. Clair.
The 40-year-old custom woodworking business has tripled its sales and number of employees in the past three years, following its purchase by Russell Rice.
Rice says their success is due in part to the company's integrated approach.
"What makes us unique is our ability to do the entire project, and the ability to do it cost effectively," Rice says. "A lot of times true custom can be very expensive, and we work with the customers to work within their budget and meet their needs."
National Woodwork does custom woodwork; stocks ready-made cabinets; and has field carpenters that do trimming, mill work, wainscot, and other in-house finishing.
"Most people do one of those three things," Rice says. "We do all three.”
The new production facility in the Windgap Industrial Park, on Neville Island, is part of Rice's plan to have one manufacturing facility supporting three showrooms around the city.
In addition to the forthcoming showroom in Upper St. Clair, Rice hopes to open a second space in the North Hills/Wexford area, and a third in the East.
The showrooms displays the company's full product offerings to builders and designers, and includes a range of residential and commercial woodwork.
