A generation ago a young carpenter was working in new home construction building kitchen cabinets. But his dream was to have his own business manufacturing the best domestic solid wood bedroom furniture in Ohio and someday in the USA. Keep in mind that this was a tall order because this region was already known worldwide for woodworking expertise in solid wood furniture.
This young carpenter's dreams turned into reality with the building of Sleigh Beds that are still in one of Urban's best sellers , "Legacy". As the word spread his business began growing and the factory expanded many times over. It quickly became one of the few Ohio factories that were 100 percent vertical with no dependence on small sub-shops to complete a bedroom order. This made customization in reasonable time possible, giving consumers exactly what they want with no compromise. At last: American-made quality furniture that gives the consumer both quality and choice. The Urban Collections also delivers furniture all over the USA on its own fleet of trucks.
Leading the Nation and Still Growing
Urban collections by Yutzy's Woodworking has grown from a small shop to the leader in the USA in domestic solid wood furniture. Our employee numbers have swelled fivefold in just a few years , and this factory employs more people than any other Ohio solid wood furniture factory. The secret is out, that is, our independent streak has created a company that does not buy component parts from area factories and put their bedrooms together like a puzzle. No, we make all our own components, do our own glue up for wood panels, make our own doors, make our own dovetail panels for drawers, so this together can be crafted into bedrooms so diverse that we can handle every pertinent style important in furniture retail today
Yutzy Woodworking Factories
These are hybrid modern factories that benefit from a wonderful group of gifted craftsmen that together are changing the domestic furniture landscape. We are proud of our state of the art case good, bed, and finishing facilities.
Techniques True to Our Quality
We give you the best time-tested construction techniques, and the best catalyzed, heirloom-quality, silky smooth, durable finish that CAN NOT be reproduced overseas. The beautiful thing is, we will continue to employ many more Americans, and we are only going to get better and better. Our work speaks for itself.
The wind is blowing from the East back home, and isn’t it about time?
Our manufacturing is starting to come back – from an industry that was basically outsourced to China – back to our home, back to our soil. We are proud to do everything we can to keep growing and promoting excellence.
Americans are smart and savvy. Americans want VALUE, not American-sounding brand names stamped on goods mass produced in sweat shops overseas.
There are articles in abundance on the Internet about the plight of this industry over the last twenty years. Some American furniture manufacturers survived by diverting most of their production from the U.S. to China and other countries while still retaining some assembly and categorical manufacturing here in the USA. Other companies that were institutions in the American furniture industry like Tell City Chair from Tell City, Indiana, went out of business in 1996 (the Tell City Chair name was subsequently sold), Keller Solid Wood Bedrooms from Corydon, Indiana, founded in 1885, closed in 2006, and Richardson Brothers, a 150-year-old Wisconsin-based family furniture empire, ceased furniture production in 2007.
A little research shows that these were just a few of the casualties in the death of an industry. We are proud at The Urban Collections of Ohio USA to be a part of the rebirth of an industry. Americans want quality in the place where they can relax: their home. Americans also want choice, and this is what we bring to you.
Excellence is a way of life
This sign explains our secret,they are all over our factories. We feel our recent growth comes from our attention to detail. Excellence is a way of life in every step along the way, Excellence is the high goal we must achieve before we send out furniture into your homes. Excellence stems from carefully choosing the lumber., to carefully crafting and finishing each piece of Urban Collections. This is what sets us apart from any other domestic woodworking operation, and it is the reason you will actually love the furniture in your home.
