Ohio-Based Companies WoodTrac and Wayne Homes Partner for Mutual Growth and Success

ARCHBOLD, Ohio (September 2014) – Custom closet system manufacturer WoodTrac, a division of Sauder Woodworking, recently announced a new alliance with the Ohio-based new home builder, Wayne Homes, as the sole supplier of WoodTrac reach-in and walk-in closet upgrade options for all new homes built by Wayne Homes. Covington-Model-in-Belmont,-OH-(1).jpgWoodTrac master closet system products are now installed in each of the nine Wayne Homes home centers located in five states, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, and West Virginia.

Award-winning Wayne Homes, Unionville, Ohio, and WoodTrac, Archbold, Ohio, have been working together since January of 2014 to offer WoodTrac closet systems as an attractive, flexible and durable upgrade to the wire shelving available as standard in new Wayne Home homes. “Quality and affordability are very important to our customers, which is usually what draws them to Wayne Homes in the first place. Our partnership with WoodTrac allows us to work with people who are passionate about providing custom closet storage solutions at a great value,” said Tom Benedict, vice president of purchasing for the 40 year old regional home building Builder 100 company.

Many new home buyers are looking for custom master, walk-in and reach-in closets with a wide array of quality closet organization features.   WoodTrac closet systems offer the finishes, contour moldings, profiles and framed panels of a more expensive custom closet at a fraction of the cost.  Features like glass doors and 5-panel drawer construction add to a custom, high-end appearance, while hardware-like soft close doors are a symbol of WoodTrac product quality.

WoodTrac National Sales Manager, Chad Arndt, said, “Ours is a natural partnership, it makes good sense for an Ohio-based builder to team up with an Ohio-based closet system manufacturer. We have really enjoyed the relationship we’ve built with Wayne Homes. In fact, we are just getting started, as we visit model home centers across Ohio and in Pennsylvania to train sales representatives on the WoodTrac closet systems. We look forward to a long and rewarding partnership in the future.”

Covington-Model-in-Belmont,-OH-(2).jpgNot just a bedroom closet upgrade, Arndt indicated that Wayne Homes has discussed the feasibility of installing WoodTrac closet systems in rooms throughout the home, creating entertainment centers in the family room, cabinet and shelf storage in the laundry room, and bookcases in the study. WoodTrac closet systems offer an attractive and affordable closet solution with a high-end custom appearance.

“We see our partnership with Wayne Homes as a testing lab of sorts, as we evaluate and fine tune our closet organization system offerings to today’s homebuilding industry. Going forward, we plan to attract other new home builders seeking a value adding amenity to include in their portfolio of offerings to home buyers. Customizable closet organization systems are in demand by today’s consumer, and WoodTrac offers a versatile product at an attractive price point,” added Arndt.

Backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty, WoodTrac closets come in a variety of sizes, finishes and design options tailored to fit each home’s organizational needs.  The simple storage system is available in White, Cherry and Espresso finishes with adjustable shelves or drawers, doors and hanging rods.  For more information about WoodTrac by Sauder or to find the nearest WoodTrac showroom location, visit
