A note from Ron................
As many of you know, my wife Susan and I are not getting any younger and in recent months we have had a very difficulty time hiring and keeping quality help for our business. We are at a point in our life when we would like to have a bit more time off to spend with our Grandchildren and do a few more things that we just haven’t had enough spare time to allow. So, at this time we have elected to take a business partner for Anderson Originals & Fancy kitty products, LLC. Our new partners are Lamar and Melody High and their 9 children. They are a Pennsylvania Dutch family that have been in the oak furniture business for a number of years, so have great work ethics as well as a lot of experience building wood products.
I believe they will be a great asset to our business, allowing us to expand our product line, while maintaining our high quality and very high standards for customer service.
Please welcome them and be assured there will be no major changes in the way we do business. ~~Ron
Meet the High family......................
We’re thankful for the opportunity to own a small family business, and are very grateful to Ron for his help in making it possible. We also thank our 9 children and son–in–law and daughter–in–law. Without their help we wouldn’t be where we are. Ashley is married to Sheldon Martin, they live a 10 min. drive from here and enjoy helping out once in a while. Brent is married to Emily ( with their sheep and dog Bert), they live a half mile up the road and are a huge help in the shop. Kris is our main office guy, a great guy to have! He's the one you'll be talking to on the phone and via email. Chad does a good job of packing & shipping. Trevor, Samantha, and Tanner come home from school, drop their lunches, and race to the shop to see whats happening! Shane “hangs out” in the shop much of the day and 2 yr old Sierra loves a paint brush in her hand & a jar of tung oil, making sure our products have a good shine! Lamar enjoyed his previous job at Oakwood Industries, a furniture factory. Having his own woodworking shop at home is like a dream come true. Melody’s favorite hobby has always been sewing – thus the carder covers. Don’t be surprised if another sewn product appears on our website! We appreciate our wonderful customers. Lots of good people out there! ~~~The High Family
