Northwestern Design was founded in 1981 by Cal and Judy Schmidt in Rohnert Park, CA, with the objective to provide clients with Architectural Millwork packages in their entirety. NWD became a corporation in 1986, and had already increased its sales to over $1 million per year. In 1992, the entire operation was moved to its current residence in Grants Pass, OR. Continued growth was its destiny, and by 1998, sales had increased to over $3 million per year. Now, over 35 years later, we comfortably produce approximately $10 million per year.
Our continued growth has been dependent on the expansion of our manufacturing capabilities and exploration of new markets. Our commitment to investing time and money into maintaining and upgrading our equipment, facilities and software is apparent. We pride ourselves on the ability to stay on the cutting edge of the industry by keeping pace with all of the advances in wood technology.
We enjoy an established track record of excellence with our customers. Their expressions of satisfaction and encouragement are numerous, and we intend to continue to grow and be known as a standout in our industry.
