Steelcase: From Office Furniture to Technology Products
Roderick C. Wright II has held a number of leadership positions throughout his career. Most recently, Roderick C. Wright excelled as a team leader and manufacturing support technician for Steelcase of Kentwood, Michigan.
Founded in 1912, Steelcase (then called the Metal Office Furniture Company) was originally located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The company acquired its first patent in 1914 for a low-cost, fireproof, metal garbage can. This revolutionary product was just the start of Steelcase’s success. Since then, the company has grown its portfolio to include a wide range of products and services.
In addition to manufacturing desks, bookcases, office chairs, and other furniture for the workplace, the healthcare industry, and the educational sector, Steelcase also provides advice on creating a sustainable office space and reusing old furniture. Additionally, the company has expanded its product line to offer technological items such as interactive whiteboards and sounds systems for use in all types of office settings.
