The Campus At Smallwoods

50 comments

We will all look back on the year 2020 with mixed emotions. The year has had its own challenges and stressors, and at moments has just been plain weird. But I will remember this day as one filled with hope.

For years we’ve worked towards having all our Smallwoods team members under one roof—together. A fire robbed us of that opportunity only three short years ago, and we now begin the process of realizing that dream once more. In fact, we put that dream in ink.

With today’s announcement, we now begin site work for the one million square foot facility set on over 200 acres of land. “The Campus” as we refer to it will house the growing Smallwoods team and consolidate all manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, and administration functions into one location. The aim of the campus project is to provide a thriving and creative workplace culture for employees, that combines modern design elements and leaves the native East Texas surroundings undisturbed.

We have the privilege of being a part of so many family stories. Not just in the milestones we help our customers frame, but also in providing our team members with a family friendly workplace that allows them to provide for their loved ones. Keeping our employees in mind, we purchased the property with a dual use idea that you can have a family farm and ranch atmosphere happening all around you, but at the same time have your business. It stems from the idea of wanting to grow a large, loyal team that just took care of each other.

We’ve worked hard. We’ve made sacrifices and committed to this vision for quite some time and now have the confidence to take the next step and make the investment. Employing more of our East Texas neighbors during these hard economic times we face is a responsibility we don’t take lightly. The vision we have for our small part of the world has only just begun. We are grateful for the 300 person team we have around us now, and the team members we look forward to welcoming in the near future.

I’m thrilled for you! We were fulltime travelers for 3 years and during that time, fell in love with Texas. We loved not just the iconic cities, coastal beauty, and cowboy culture, but also lakeside sunsets in the pinewood forests of East Texas. My first Smallwoods order was an extra large framed photo of a beautiful scene near Castroville, southwest of San Antonio, with the lyrics from a song from our wedding (47 years ago), lettered across the bottom. Smallwoods has made several other pieces for me, capturing special moments of our lives and travels.
I’m excited that you are thriving and putting all your heart into growing this wonderful business and expanding it for your community and future customers. I wish you great success and offer my prayers for continued provision and protection.

I have ordered from Smallwoods for years. Watching this video was the first time that I realized that you guys are located in my hometown. It makes me feel even better knowing that I’ve been helping to support my hometown even while living in Little Rock, AR. I wish you all many blessings and continued success in the years to come.
