What follows, is a video about IKEA’s recent decision to expand its business with Sauder Woodworking in Archbold, Ohio. Over the years, Sauder Woodworking has been very good to the Gerencser family. All of our children worked college summer jobs at Sauder’s and currently Polly and two of our children work for them. One son and two daughter in-laws also worked for Sauder’s at one time.
The new IKEA business will result in new jobs, stable employment, and hopefully pay raises. Sauder’s is a privately held local business that recognizes that over 1,600 people count on them to provide decent jobs that pay well. Though they have faced extreme economic pressure in recent years, I, for one, appreciate all the Sauder family has done for the Gerencser family and NW Ohio.
