Marsh Cabinets employs our friends

Marsh Cabinets is a family owned business located in the heart of High Point.   In the last few months they have had an uptick in business and have hired many of the Burmese arrivals to work right here in the community.  From the earliest days of this blog you will see reference to Marsh.  They work in tandem with Graham Personnel to screen and place workers in their factory.   About 3 months ago I had the privilege to tour the plant with their Human Resources Manager, William Baumgarner.   I saw many of my friends at their jobs, cutting sheets of wood, painting, attaching hinges, assembling cabinets, polishing cabinets and packing items for shipping.

About five years ago we needed to set up our home office and so we worked with Marsh to design and install our office.  We hired some Burmese friends to help us convert our paneled den complete with fireplace into our modern office.  Here are some snaps of the finished room utilizing the furniture our friends from Myanmar made at Marsh.  You will see the workspaces for both Kay and I.  In fact today as I write this post, I am sitting at my desk enjoying these beautiful and functional pieces.
