Spectrum Industries Continues Success






After a strong showing in 2010, Spectrum once again outperformed the furniture industry. According to a recent article by CabinetMakerFDM, the Furniture Design & Manufacturing market has continued to slip. The year 2010 was not nearly as negative as 2009, but sales decreased by 6.4% nonetheless. For the full article, click here.

Spectrum Industries has had the honor of being recognized in the FDM 300 for many years now. The FDM 300 is comprised of the 300 largest cabinet, furniture, millwork, store fixture, office/contract and component producers in North America. In the February 2011 edition of CabinetMakerFDM, Spectrum was recognized even further as one of a handful of FDM 300 companies with stronger sales in 2010.

While this is certainly great news to all Spectrum stakeholders, we have only our customers to thank. Customer service continues to be our pride and joy, and our loyal customer base continues to provide us with the ideas and insight needed to weather an adverse economy. We formed some great partnerships in 2010, and for our part, we at Spectrum will continue to listen to you in 2011!

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…
