For Northern Contours, a Minnesota-based component manufacturer, the recent economic downturn has been a mixed blessing.
Northern Contoursâ corporate headquarters is in Mendota Heights, MN, and the company has five manufacturing facilities: a 70,000-square-foot RTF plant and a 50,000-square-foot veneer plant in Fergus Falls, MN; a 100,000-square-foot RTF plant in Corbin, KY; and a 50,000-square-foot veneer plant and a 50,000-square-foot custom wood door plant in Vanceburg, KY.
Skow says the companyâs manufacturing processes are fairly simple. âMost of the time we start with sheet stock for our thermofoil and veneer slab doors,â he says. âThe order entry process feeds the information to our router software programs.
