Westbrook, ME (PRWEB) November 04, 2012
Maine based wooden dowel provider H.A. Stiles has recently called attention to an ongoing initiative to continually enhance the quality the company can provide its customers. Lately this has been done through the addition of key secondary services and expanded manufacturing capabilities.
As H.A. Stiles Vice President Steve Parrish says, ongoing improvements to the variety of dowels the company can offer simply comes with the territory. “Wooden dowels are used by many industries around the world, but the specifications required are always different. As the need arises for different sizes, shapes, finishes, and secondary operations, we do our best to provide the solutions needed.”
While wooden dowels may seem like a simple and ordinary product, they are actually one of the older wood products formed by man and have remained a necessity for centuries. Despite the history of wooden dowels, representatives at H.A. Stiles are quick to point out that they are hardly antiquated and continue to endure as a product many industries can’t do without.
Over the years, wood dowels have become a staple for manufacturers of furniture, tools, sporting goods, toys, and more. As Parrish explains, when those industries change – so does H.A. Stiles. Whether that has meant adding the capabilities for slotted and tapered dowels or laser engraving and silk screening, as the products requiring wood dowels get more advanced – so do the dowels provided by H.A. Stiles.
Today, H.A. Stiles has the ability to provide wood dowels in a variety of shapes and sizes, including diameters from 1/12” to 3” and stock lengths of 36” and 48”. Larger diameters and custom lengths up to 16’ are available in some species. As for specifications available, the company's full range of capabilities now provides options like metal and wooden threads, rounded ends, tapers, crossbores, and more. On top of this, H.A. Stiles also offers an expanding list of finishing services. These include tumble finishing, dip finishing, laser engraving, pad printing, and more.
