About the project:
Schaad and Sons started almost two decades ago in a garage and has grown into a comprehensive 18,000-square-feet manufacturing facility and showroom employing thirteen full-time skilled staff and craftsmen.
“As a company, one of our guiding principles has been to embrace new technology to reinforce our commitment to consistent quality in the manufacturing of customized, hand-finished, high-quality, solid woods into architectural millwork and cabinets,” said owner Ryan Schaad.
According to Schaad, the company plans to invest over $150,000 to achieve growth goals for its products outside of the state of Ohio in both residential and commercial markets. The company plans to purchase four pieces of capital-intensive equipment that will create three new, full-time jobs at the facility.
The JobsOhio Inclusion Grant will support the machinery and equipment investment to improve automation and productivity to drive future growth.
“Our goal is to automate manual production steps while increasing capacity without sacrificing quality.” - Ryan Schaad, co-owner, Schaad and Sons
