The Factory

Traditional Values, New Ways

Since Conrad Boos made the very first blocks in 1887, technology has brought great advances in precision engineering and manufacturing –from receipt of the premium hardwoods at the factory to the shipping of the finished product. Progressive kilns dry and cure every piece of hardwood, and programmable manufacturing equipment has enabled us to improve and guarantee product quality and safety with more functional & flexible designs – designs that Conrad Boos could only dream of in 1887. Though a lot has changed, our pride in workmanship and commitment to quality are crafted into every Boos Block product. These values are as important today as when we started in Effingham, Illinois over 125 years ago.
