Dake OEM Furniture

Dake OEM Furniture began in 1987 as Grand Haven Furniture Products. The original management team came from an OEM automotive manufacturing background at Grand Haven Stamped Products (now GHSP), another JSJ Corporation business.

The business plan for the new company was to apply the same rigorous quality and manufacturing disciplines required of a Tier 1 automotive supplier to the OEM contract furniture business. The potential customer base was accessible because the leading contract office furniture manufacturers were located close by in western Michigan. The timing was ideal for an innovative supplier that could provide high quality components, competitively priced, with a track record for on time deliveries.

Grand Haven Furniture Products again tapped the automotive engineering expertise of GHSP to differentiate their product offering from other OEM furniture suppliers. The result was a unique method of molding soft urethane edges on tables, desks, and other work surfaces. Market acceptance was immediate and coincided with ergonomics becoming a critical factor in office furniture design.

A name change to Counter Point Furniture Products followed in 1990. Counter Point then grew the business with sales to numerous office and medical furniture customers.

In 2001 JSJ combined Counter Point and Superior Chair and created a small, innovative contract furniture manufacturing company called izzy design, now izzy+. The new company was a response to changes in the office environment that stressed collaboration and mobility. izzy design offered products that were cool and affordable to the emerging market.

In 2010 an announcement was made that the original OEM furniture products manufacturing company would split from izzy+ and became part of the Dake Corporation, another JSJ business, on January 1, 2011. The business name was changed to Dake OEM Furniture to clearly differentiate the markets served by the Spring Lake, Michigan manufacturing facility.

Dake Corporation, a JSJ business, is a US company that has been manufacturing continuously in Grand Haven, Michigan since 1887. The merger with Dake gives Dake OEM Furniture access to a complete metal fabrication facility including an extensive CNC machine shop, a complete welding facility, global casting sourcing, and increased technical manufacturing and assembly support.
