Beginning as a high-end custom solidwood furniture shop, they also now manufactuer custom closets and Biesse America has had the pleasure of standing alongside their continued growth. Natural Expressions’ journey with Biesse America began in the Fall of 2013 when Owner, Brandon Bailes, requested more information on a sander that would fit his budget and could be used for solidwood sanding, veneer and sealer sanding. A Biesse representative recommended the Viet S211 VN. Although Biesse America did not currently have a Viet S211 set up in our Charlotte show room, we had one installed and brought Brandon in for the next Biesse Inside event where he could run his raw and sealed boards to see the machine’s capabilities first-hand. After witnessing the sanding flexibility and quality of the Viet S211 VN, combined with its reasonable price, Bailes locked in his decision to move forward.
At the Inside Biesse event, Brandon was able to learn more about available automation that could help propel his company to the next level, in particular CNC machines and Edgebanders - even though he had no immediate need for either machine. In the months following the event, Brandon spent many hours talking with other shops and found need for a closet manufactuer located near the heart of Chicago. Lucky for Brandon, his existing shop had the perfect location and availabile space to add closet manufacturing, allowing local closet companies to avoid the notorious Chicago traffic. Combined with what he learned at Inside Biesse, he had the necessary knowledge to create this profitable venture. Within a few short months, Natural Expressions Furnture was running a Klever 1530 High Speed and a Spark 4.3 Edgebander. With that combination, this three man shop surpassed production of shops almost triple their size and space with ease and quick turnaround time.
