One of our key pillars for corporate social responsibility here at dlivrd is, “Don’t lose local. Support small businesses, organizations, and the communities in which we operate.” Therefore, it was a natural fit to have our first spotlight feature our dear friends over at Redirected Wood Company in Glenside, PA. We have the honor of sharing an office complex with them, and have furnished our offices on both coasts with their gorgeous, custom, sustainably-sourced wood tables. Not a business? Redirected Wood Company has options for both business and residential furnishing here!
Founded by Meek and Brittany five years ago, Redirected Wood Company was born out of a fundraising event for their adoption journey! Meek designed and created a few custom pieces that were put up for a silent auction fundraiser by some close friends. The pieces were so popular that bidding wars were had, and demand exploded! Their “why” is to provide a loving home to foster children. As Redirected Wood Company grows, their goal is to be able to continue to give back and, “start an internship program for kids aging out of foster care.”
Meek reflects, “I’ve known Chris for about 15 years! We met at work and have been friends ever since. Chris was there to take photos when I proposed to my wife and I actually had the privilege of officiating his wedding. As we both started our own companies we’ve helped each other out along the way. In the early days I would help him with deliveries and he’s always been a great source of advice. At Redirected Wood Company, we build high quality handcrafted custom furniture, specializing in tables and desks, but also making stand alone cabinetry. As dlivrd has grown, we’ve been able to provide them with a majority of their office furniture. We’ve done over 20 standing desks, 4 conference tables, some custom cabinets and countertops and a few other pieces along the way. As dlivrd continues to expand across the country we’re excited about the opportunity to fill more of their offices with beautiful solid wood furniture!”
Additionally, Redirected Wood Company is having their open house in two weeks on May 13th, from 10am-2pm!
