The goal of Forums programs is to have as many people attend the programs as possible. Due to capacity limits at events, programs often sell out quickly. Keeping our no-shows to as small as possible allows the program to be well attended and a success.

Known throughout the industry for a can-do flexibility few others possess, Nevers nimbly accommodates customers with standard product lines and tailored solutions that range from slight modifications and semi-custom upgrades to one-of-a-kind commissions.

By applying our expert craftsmanship to exacting specifications, we create superior products that allow productive people to Work in Style.

Nevers Industries Inc. recently moved to an updated facility after being in the same building for over 30 years. With this new facility, it has provided a better process flow from order to shipment, making Nevers a much more efficient manufacturer. The space has allowed Nevers to fully integrate the manufacturing process. The new facility consists of factory, office and showroom space.
