Project Spotlight

Jackson Center PK-8 School, Jackson Center, Ohio   

The Jackson Center PK-8 School was installed in 2017 by Farnham Equipment Company.  The project required 2200 Transition series casework, 5120 series Band and Music, Reception Desks, Circulation Desk and Wall Surround Assemblies.  These were manufactured using StevensWood in Dark Noce with Artika texture. 

Kami Wernimont of Farnham Equipment Company reports, "Jackson Center was one of many finished projects in the fall of 2017 that included a major focus on less in-room casework modules and more multi-functional mobile units."   The mobiles feature write-on surfaces for additional collaboration space for teachers and students. 

The project architect was Freytag & Associates Inc. in Ohio.  View more photos and project details on the Farnham website.

Top Quality Control 
Throughout Every Stage of Manufacturing 

Our Quality Control Department takes its job very seriously, from the entry of raw materials into our production stream, to the moment the finished good ships.  Materials must pass stringent testing to be approved for use. Stevens is one of the few laminators and casework manufacturers to have such a lab. 

What sets us apart?
  • Fully staffing a Quality Control Department and Lab
  • Testing incoming raw materials to ensure they meet our standards
  • Fully testing all new sources of raw materials before using them in manufacturing
  • Testing products throughout the manufacturing process
  • New Hecht table and updated lab

Our testing process is extremely reliable.  The results are requested and used by our raw material manufacturers to rate their materials.   

How do we test raw materials?
  • Physical property tests, including MOE, MOR & IB, and screw withdrawal
  • Laminate surface quality test
  • Surface bond test, determining chip resistance

Our customers can count on us to deliver the quality product they expect.
