The Wood 100: ninth annual report.

by:QY Precision      2019-10-24
WOOD 100 has achieved outstanding results in 1997 and is looking forward to achieving greater results in 98 and 99, and it is clear that 1997 is a very good year for WOOD 100 members.
Sales of these companies reportedly exceeded $0. 826 billion, an average increase of 31. 9percent -
The highest average growth rate in five years was the same as the second highest growth rate in 100.
Early returns of 1998 also look good, as 78% predict doubledigit growth.
Some people may think that things can\'t be possiblyget better companies, and 40% of them are predictinetheir\'s \"best year\" and 50 percent predicted \"good\" 1999 in 1999. (
See the chart on page 58. )
To shed light on the reasons why these companies have been so successful, the editor of W & WP asked WOOD 100 executives to do so.
To name one of the most important factors in their company\'s recent prosperity.
The answer is from big companies and small companies.
Some are growing at an alarming rate, while others are slower.
The answer to our question crosses these boundaries, indicating that whatever the size or shape of the company, something separates the wood from the packaging by 100 members.
30% increase in productivity
It is usually due to capital improvements such as increased factory space or new machinery production lines.
The second-ranked 24% employees attribute this to their skills and/or dedication.
Some people think the marketing plan (19 percent)
New product development (12 percent)
Improvement of quality control (six percent)
They have the greatest relationship with their company.
Nine out of 100 companies offer their own answers, including customer service, diversity and increased market focus.
Here are some of the things we have heard.
* James bonito, CEO of the New England clock (No. 5)
: \"We acquired a company that did not invest any money in the equipment and was unable to produce the clock within a reasonable time.
We designed the product, the status of the purchase-of-the-
Turned it into an art device.
* Richard Nicholson, president, Woodtech Ind. (No. 9)
\"Our employees are our greatest asset because they have gained experience and demonstrated their endless support.
* Jim Kleber, chairman of the mallet (No. 13)
: \"Customers have been looking for new products and with their help we are trying to expand our product line to meet their needs.
* Fariba Shaygun, sales and marketing director, European design cabinet (No. 16)
: \"We dispersed a lot of on-site controls, set up a collaborative team between manufacturing and installation, and formed a formal quality control team.
* Barry Nash, president of N2 Millwork Services (No. 21)
We are working on more public works projects.
Hotels and schools now account for 30 per cent of our work.
\"While these companies are getting better, they are wary of factors that could lead to the end of the boom. (
See WOOD 100 FirmsShare below for future attention).
Among these WOOD 100 executives, finding and maintaining good work is a major concern. Thirty-
Of the 99 respondents, 5 will list them as their most concerned issues, 23 will list them as second, and 5 will list them as third.
The biggest worry about the future
What makes wood 100 unique is a variety of companies.
No, for example.
Three woodworking industries with 500 employees are sandwiched between the numbers.
2 Commercial cabinets with 5 employees and numbers
Southern Building wood products with 70 employees.

On average, the \"typical\" wood 100 member has 96 employees and the total revenue is $8, not your typical wood 100 member.
In 1997, it was $26 million, compared to $6.
26 million years 6. Our top-
Byrne Millwork, the top company, performed very well in 1997 and was very efficient.
It has 24 employees, well below the average of 96, but total income is $6.
Sales 7 million
Not much lower than the average of $8. 26 million.
President Paidin Byrne is also very prescient about the growth rate predicted in last year\'s report.
Actual sales of the company increased by 408. 5% -
A new record of 100 of wood.
\"How did they do it? Someone might ask.
\"The order is already in progress,\" said John Scholl, senior project manager at Byrne Millwork . \".
\"We work day and night to get these done before Labor Day.
\"Scholl believes that quality control is a major factor in Byrne\'s success in 1997, but sounds good --
Old-fashioned hard work is also related to this.
Hit the ball at the Graybar.
WI-West Ellis 000
WOOD 100 streak, based in WOOD, extends continuously to 9.
Craig grebal furniture factory ranked ninth in the timber 100 fast List
The timber products company is growing.
Western Allis, WI, classic manufacturers
In the past nine years, the average sales of fashion custom furniture have increased by more than 26%, the only member in the first timber 100 class to gain a place in the timber 100 survey.
Echoing the contest\'s mantra \"not the biggest, the best\", Graybar furniture has grown by more than 700 since 1988 percent, and has broken through the million dollar mark for the first time in 97(
See the chart for this page. )
Sales are expected to grow another 20% this year.
Craig grebal, president of the company, said in the 1990 survey that the company\'s spledge segment achieved sustained growth, treating \"each customer as our only customer \".
As a result, about 80% of the Graybar furniture factory\'s business is repeat and recommend customers.
In order to attract new customers, the company has implemented marketing plans including radio programs.
\"We now emphasize that the population of each station matches the broadcast ads directed by our customers,\" says Graybar . \".
An elderly woman heard such a radio advertisement and she needed to find a company that could repair her antique furniture.
When she wanted to seek guidance, there was an advertisement on the radio for grebal.
Grebal says she sees this coincidence as a symbol of God\'s will.
By advertising, repeating, and recommending, perhaps one or two more prayers, greibar has all the views of the coming year: \"Wait (yousee)
Sales next year.
\"Timber 100The WOOD 100 qualification was established by WOOD and WOOD products in 1990 to achieve fast achievement
Manufacturer of wood products.
\"Not the biggest, the best\" WOOD 100 slogan is to encourage small custom woodworking shops and high
Manufacturing woodworking company.
The four prerequisites required to participate in the ninth annual report are: 1.
The main business of each company must be the manufacture of solid wood or composite panel products. 2.
Since 1995, each company has sold at least $100,000 a year. 3.
In 1997, the total sales of each company exceeded 1996. 4.
Each company has filled out the WOOD 100 qualification form and is licensed in this report for the release of annual sales figures and other information by W & WP.
In addition to these commonalities, the range of runsthe color gamut, product structure, location and theory of the 1998-class wood 100 company was successful. [
Omitted table data
Another view of timber 100A\'s fair criticism of timber 100 is that it ranks companies that belittle their size.
Obviously, for a company with sales of $300,000, it is easier to double the size in a year than for a company with $3 million, not to mention a $30 million company to accomplish this feat.
In order to compete fairly, here are how the sales growth wealth of 50 timber 100 companies is accumulated when classified as a more comparable group.
An interesting aspect of timber 100 is the number of \"millionaires\" produced in 1997. Comparingyear-to-
Of the 100 companies surveyed this year, 23 made less than a million in 1997, while 28 made less than $1 million in 1996.
The number of companies reporting sales between $1 million and $2.
5 million also fell (
Compared with 23 companies in 1997, 19 companies in 1996).
Growth comes from higher sales categories.
19 companies say they have $2.
Compared with 17 companies a year ago, sales in 1997 amounted to $5 million to $5 million;
16 companies said they had $5 million to $10 million compared to 13;
23 companies said they broke $10 million in barriers in 1997 compared to 19.
WOOD 100\'s concerns about future discovery, retention and training of quality employees rank first among WOOD 100 participants.
63 company executives mentioned the recruitment and retention of employees, 35 of whom said it was their top concern.
24 respondents listed the economy as the top concern.
Some have reported that they are worried about the economy because it is beyond their control.
\"Companies become complacent when things get very good,\" one executive wrote . \".
Here are the selected comments from WOOD 100 participants on how they plan to address the issues they are most concerned about.
Employee recruitment/retention \"efforts to improve wages and benefits are expected to help us retain the most skilled employees.
Active recruitment through school in High Schoolto-
Work Plan will be used.
\"We now offer better employee benefits. (We are)
Not only from classified advertising, but also recruitment and training through the Internet and local schools.
\"Because the unemployment rate in our region is very low, recruitment will have to expand geographically.
We will also expand training programs and provide incentives for quality, professional ethics, attendance and attitude.
Pluswe will set up an employee bonus program for referrals and expand benefits to retain high-value employees.
We hope that if the economy is depressed, they will rely on us as an \"economy\" that we have tried\"and-
Real supplier of products.
\"To ensure the safety of new customers, we will continue to focus on the diversity of product lines and look at ways to improve production methods to increase productivity.
\"We have established our own apprenticeship program.
We have experienced people in technical schools or trade schools who have basic woodworking knowledge.
It is our department head\'s responsibility to train employees who show their talents in the theft work and to guide them to grow within the company.
\"WOOD 100\'s wizards are essentially a bullish group of people, but here are some more optimistic forecasts for sales growth in 1998, as well as some early earnings forecasts of 1999.
Please note that none of the companies predict that there will be \"terrible\" or \"poverty\" in 1999 \"(
The other 60 companies forecast,digit gains. )
What is the future of 99 years?
Everyone is optimistic about the 1999 sales growth forecast.
50% of respondents said 1999 would be a good one, with another 40% forecast, the best in its history.

In addition, a regional office was opened in northern New Jersey in order to expand the customer base in the New York City area.
However, byrne does not believe that both are the main contributing factors to the company\'s success.
\"Quality control is the first.
\"With AutoCAD, we are able to generate drawings for the approval of our customers and generate accurate construction drawings for our shop assistants,\" Byrne said . \".
One of his ultimate goals is to automate and integrate their cad systems with the devices they want to buy.
