Spectrum Industries Achieves Indoor Air Quality Certification

Spectrum is very proud today to announce that we have achieved the prestigious Indoor Advantage certification from SCS!!!Where our manufacturing facilities are located, in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, people have a close attachment to nature and all the wonders it has to offer. Therefore it comes naturally to us to protect our environment by using clean materials, recycling at every opportunity, and being as energy-efficient as possible. Very few manufacturers can say they have won the highly regarded GSA Evergreen award, yet more and more manufacturers claim to be “green” companies.

So we felt that an independent 3rd party certification would be important. Not that it would be a big reach beyond what we already do for our surroundings, but it would give our actions and our words that much more credibility. Now, instead of just being known as a great steward to the environment, Spectrum Industries has proven that we care about the safety and health of our customers as well. Having our products certified for indoor air quality goes beyond our second-to-none customer service. Indoor Advantage certification says that we care about the people, and most importantly the children, that use our products every day.

When you open our 2011 catalog, we state on the very first page, “Spectrum Industries holds in highest regard our commitment to nature, to community, and to our customers.” With Indoor Advantage certification, that phrase is more than just nicely scripted words. That phrase proves true to what Spectrum is all about.

Quality Products and Customer Service

At Spectrum Industries, we believe that making a quality product matters to our customers. Having products that will outlast their users and are adaptable enough to be reused through multiple technology deployments, is what drives our innovation and desire to constantly strive to surpass our customers' expectations. Simply put, Spectrum furniture is made to last and perform for years.

Larry Lindenauer, territory manager with Spectrum in the New England region believes that product durability is one of Spectrum’s strongest selling points. “When I go to schools, they show me purchases from several years back that are still in great condition.” 
Mark Dotson, territory manager with Spectrum in the Mid-Atlantic region agreed with this sentiment, stating that “it’s wonderful when demonstrating our products to prospects and customers at tradeshows and they say, ‘We love your products,’ or ‘We have been using Spectrum for years.’ It shows that I represent a reputable and highly regarded c…

New Product: Tablet Locker

We’ve been busy and it doesn’t look like we’ll be taking a break soon! Spectrum’s newest product is the InTouch20 Secure Tablet Locker.


We’re taking a good idea and making it smaller! Adding iPad, eReader or other tablet technology to the curriculum? The InTouch20Secure Tablet Locker is the little cousin to the InTouch40 Tablet Cart and is just the thing for the small classroom. The wire management and numbered slots make organization and charging easy. With the optional Synchronizing Kit, apps can be added and the tablets synchronized. Security, charging and syncing all in a small footprint to fit in the small classroom!


You can look to Spectrum for solutions whether you’re in the market for a lectern, desk and tables, or mobile computing storage and charging carts.

First Wiki Launched Today

WikiWikiWeb, the first wiki or user-editable website, was launched on March 25, 1995 and still is a valuable source of information and sharing.
The concept and development of the “Wiki” came from Ward Cunningham in a hope to create a web page that was quickly editable by the users. In Cunningham’s case, it was to establish and promote an exchange of ideas between programmers within his company.

Cunningham originally was going to call his new platform “QuickWeb,” but later he remembered a Honolulu language term for “fast” used by an airport counter employee. The employee told Cunningham to take the Wiki Wiki Shuttle, a shuttle bus line that runs between the airport's terminals. "Wiki Wiki" is a repeating of "wiki", a Hawaiian language word for fast.

From the “Front Page” of the WikiWikiWeb:

The idea of a “Wiki” may seem odd at first, but dive in and explore its links! The “Wiki” is a composition system; it’s a discussion medium; it’s a repository; it’s a mail syst…
