About Whitney Brothers
Founded in NH in 1904, Whitney Brothers® uses old-world craftsmanship blended with state of the art CNC technology to design and manufacture award winning wood furniture for Early Learning in educational and childcare environments. We invented the product categories we operate in and pioneered their commercial distribution.
Our products are proudly made in the US, certified compliant with CPSIA regulations, GREENGUARD® Gold certified for indoor air quality, certified to meet or exceed ANSI/BIFMA standards, and supported by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
We select wood suppliers whose responsible forestry management plans (FSC, PEFC) align with our goal to utilize the environment in a sustainable, responsible, low impact manner. This philosophy supports our mission to design and manufacture innovative, safe and durable products for children that we proudly make in America, are GREENGUARD™ Gold Certified for indoor air quality and supported by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
We apply a non-toxic, non-yellowing, durable ultra violet (UV) finish on our products that does not release harmful solvents into the atmosphere during the curing and drying process, unlike water-based finishes. We apply our UV finish using an automated roll coater process that achieves a remarkable 99.99% transfer efficiency and virtually eliminates any dispersion of UV finish into the atmosphere.
Our state of the art CNC automated machinery and optimized manufacturing processes produce maximum yield from wood stock with exceptionally little waste. We collect and donate any wood waste to local organizations that repurpose the material for their own use.
Packaging for Shipment
We use an innovative cardboard box making machine that eliminates cardboard scrap and helps prevent shipping damage to packaged items. Envision a giant origami machine that receives product dimensions via network connection to configure a cardboard shipping box for each product that comes off production line. This process enables us to produce packaging “on demand” and virtually eliminate cardboard waste.
