Adams Manufacturing to Debut World’s First Stacking Resin Rocking Chair

Made in USA rocking chair delivers the look, strength and functionality of more expensive traditional rockers at a fraction of the cost

PORTERSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA, May 6, 2014 –Adams Manufacturing will debut its new “Made in USA” stacking resin rocking chair at the 2014 National Hardware Show® - one of the largest home improvement gatherings in the world. The exhibition is being held May 6-8, 2014, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Adams’ marketing theme at the show will be: “Come Meet Our New Rock Star

Adams’ stacking resin rocker represents a significant design and engineering milestone. Advanced computer design and data modeling has evolved to the point where structural dynamics and material properties can be successfully analyzed to verify structural performance

Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA), a rigorous computer-based methodology that analyzes the behavior of engineering structures, Adams was able to model and simulate the various structural strains, stresses and loads that are inherent in any rocking chair design. This resulted in optimal product geometries, proportions and features that have been incorporated into the final design

“Much like our industry-leading RealComfort Adirondack®, rocking chairs hold a special place in the heart and mind of consumers,” noted Adams Manufacturing President & CEO, Tom Lombardo. “Found on porches throughout North America and deeply engrained in the American psyche, rocking chairs continue to be an extremely popular form of casual seating. Many of today’s current rocking chair designs are either too expensive, too bulky, require assembly, or they can’t stack. Technological design advances have allowed us to create a stackable resin rocking chair that delivers the look, strength and functionality of more expensive traditional wooden or polyethylene rockers, but at a fraction of the cost,” said Lombardo.

Adams’ stacking resin rocking chair does not require assembly and will be manufactured to the highest quality standards using UV-stabilized materials to ensure extreme weather-resistance and product longevity.  Because they are stackable and take up minimal floor space, retailers will be able to take advantage of mass-market merchandising and product sell-through opportunities that were previously unattainable.
