Stair Supplies is not a start-up, but the company embodies some of the best qualities of one. It’s innovative, creative, focused, agile, gutsy and growing. Founded nearly two decades ago in 2004 it was originally a digital online sales company marketing stair supplies manufactured by other companies. Today Stair Supplies manufactures premium stair parts and sells direct to homeowners, builders and contractors. Not married to its batch processing system, it’s recently been “striving to automate all of our production,” specifically looking to implement a conveyer-based coat line to transition to a continuous flow process.
