Both companies operate out of a 90,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Adair, Iowa.
According to Don Hudak, CEO of Owner Revolution, “Schafer Systems’ twenty-seven-year tradition of quality and innovation has been successfully extended to non-lottery plastic products with Schafer Solutions. Schafer Solutions builds on a strong history of performance.” Backed by the strong work ethic of the Midwest, Schafer Solutions builds increased environmental, public health and safety consciousness into its products. Mr. Karachiwala said, “Schafer Solutions is well positioned to meet the custom needs of its customers for attractive, convenient, high quality and socially responsible plastic products.” Mr. Karachiwala continued “We will enhance food safety, encourage recycling of our old products, and as much as practicable use recycled materials and bioplastics as raw materials.” All Schafer Solutions’ products are “100% Made in The U.S.A.” This includes the design, materials, manufacture, assembly, and packaging. Compared to other displays and dispensers, Schafer Solutions’ products are unmatched for their brilliance, innovative design, fit, finish and customizability. The company is an expert in high volume customization and in using edge glow plastic which requires no electricity but glows like a neon light. “Our goal is to add “wow” to our retail customers’ product displays through innovative, beautiful and eye-catching displays, cabinets and dispensers,” said Mr. Hudak. “Now more than ever, the battle for customer attention in a retail store is brutal and Schafer Solutions can help the retailer be a winner in that battle,” concluded Mr. Hudak.
