An important, and ever growing part of our product line-up of custom blinds and shades at 3 Day Blinds is our Hunter Douglas Branded Products.  We love showing Hunter Douglas products to our clients, because they combine beauty, clever functionality (with many exclusive, patented features) and the highest quality.

Earlier this week, we had the pleasure of visiting the state-of-the-art Hunter Douglas Fabrication facility in Sacramento, CA.  Randy Liken, President of Fabrication, who has been responsible for many of the major initiatives that have positioned Hunter Douglas as the market leader provided us with an overview of how the division works.

When visiting a manufacturing facility, the tour guide often asks if you want “The Quarter Tour, the Dime Tour, or the Nickel Tour,” with the Quarter Tour being most comprehensive.

Jeff Hales, the Director of Operations, thoughtfully explained to us the many ways in which this is truly a world class operation, and gave us the “Quarter Tour” for sure!  Some features of their plant included the way they bring natural light into the building to save energy, the sophisticated ways in which they solicit continuous improvement suggestions from every member of the team, their fabrication methods, which use everything from delicate handwork to innovative automated machinery that results in perfectly made product, and their relentless drive to reduce scrap and waste, while providing a safe and positive environment for their associates. 

Donna Thomas, Customer Service Manager, gave us a tour of their Customer Service operation, and the new training center, where their agents spend 7 weeks in training before they start taking calls from their customers.

“I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Hunter Douglas plant and customer service operation and I am more excited than ever to have Hunter Douglas as a partner and in our portfolio of custom blinds and shades,” said Dave Hall, CEO of 3 Day Blinds.  “This meeting was especially meaningful, given that we manufacture our own brand of products in the 3 Day Blinds factory, and strive to provide nothing less than exceptional quality and service.  Because Hunter Douglas is of the exact same mindset, theirs is the only brand of custom blinds and shades other than our own, that we promote.”

Duette® Honeycomb Shades were among the many products we saw being produced at the Hunter Douglas Fabrication facility in Sacramento, CA.
