Harmonson Stairs production in the Mt. Laurel, NJ plant.

MT. LAUREL, NJ - Harmonson Stairs will be the site of an auction Oct. 2, as the company sells off its Multiax 4-axis and 5-axis CNCs, Cantek rip saw, and Timesavers and other sanders, as well as a Weinig Profimat 5-head moulder.

In addition to residential and architectural projects, Harmonson Stairs used its CNCs and other equipment to produce stair components for the trade. Working from design drawings, it would carve and mould sectional handrailing in various profiles, and prided itself on its "Volute Twist" assembled in its show, that kept starting newels at a reasonable height.

Brother Paul and Al Harmonson founded the Harmonson Brothers Stair Company in 1961 in a garage. The Harmonsons operated its until 1985 when the staircase company was acquired by Bart Withstandley and became Cherry Hill Stairs, but still traded as Harmonson Stairs.
