Summerland's is an extension of The Learning Station product line.

Summerland developed and offers superior LIFT mechanisms as OEM components.

We UNDERSTAND lifting and lowering.

We feel that that logic and common sense should be the primary objective of our manufactured products. We provide incomparable customer service. We're also determined to keep manufacturing costs low without sacrificing quality, so that as many people as possible can be offered the opportunity to benefit from our products .

Our customers seem to think this is a good idea, too.

Summerland designs and engineers practical, user-friendly, and handicapped-accessible products. Products you can depend on. We're also long-standing advocates of hiring the handicapped, (one earlier project gave us the opportunity to draw 70% of the project's workforce from these ranks).

Our group has taken great pleasure in having had the opportunity to sponsor outings and activities for Special Olympics contestants over the years. We've found that these are special people in every sense of the word.

We also manufacture school and library cabinetry & fixtures, computer kiosks and consoles.
In contrast to the sophisticated factories in which Summerland's products are built, we have a modest R & D shop, pictured at right, with several more innovative new products on tap. Just click on the ladder at right and then once inside, grab a seat.

Oh, go ahead, click on the ladder and take a look around, we'll wait for you. Honest. Watch where you step, it's probably dark inside.

Since April of 1996, the WWWeb division of The OFFICE™ has developed award-winning business and industry web sites, for not only our own family of products and services, but for scores of business entities whose synergy is compatible with our own diverse, but inter-related collection of sites. For example:

Pallet-Mall the highest traffic pallet, container and reel site on the web. This site offers a gateway to the National Wooden Pallet and Container Association, another site our team created and has managed since 1996. Warehousing Management magazine awarded its "@@@@" rating, its highest, to the NWPCA website. Along with their "Excellent" rating, this leading pallet user publication also commented, "There's an abundance of information presented in a useful, user-friendly way." The Office WWWeb division from Summerland is the only group endorsed and recommended to its global membership by NWPCA.
Home Office Mall is ranked by Windows magazine as #29 of the 101 Best Business Sites on the Web. A dual portal with The Office main site, visitors have direct access to our publishing, marketing, industrial equipment, and retail sites, to The Office client web sites, and to The OFFICE brand computer and media furniture.

Since 1996, Summerland has sponsored the children's website, the Award-Winning BEDTIME-STORY.com, (Bedtime-Story for Busy Business-Parents), featured on MSNBC, named by YAHOO! as The Number One Children's Story Site On The Web. The site was designed to help encourage literary and artistic creativity. Summerland sponsors, recruits volunteer mentors, and provides editing as well as encouragement to talented authors and illustrators whose works will undoubtedly influence young minds. We support and encourage a strong parent-child relationship. We host and publish (in electronic form) tales that are judged to be as entertaining for the adult as they are for the child, with the intent of fostering a positive shared experience that will remain in the child's memory for years to come. The site does not require registration to read the stories and accepts no advertising.
Besides, we like to read the stories ourselves


The WWWeb division of The OFFICE has created client sites which include entities such as BioSystems Research, Litco International, The Webb Companies, Profile Technology, Berry Industrial, Gray & Sons Jewelers, TreasureCoastJewelers, AGBear.com, BellBuckle Country Store, Engineered Fibre, Pallet Repair Systems, Plasti-Pallet, Inc., Preferred Pallets, Pallets and Accessories, Ongweoweh, Machine Specialists, Inc., Century Pallets, and many others.

We're also involved with computer hardware and software.
