Spotlight on Business 

The Tuxedo Chamber’s Spotlight on Business this month is Guidecraft, a manufacturer and wholesaler of quality toys and furniture for the education and consumer markets. 

Established in 1964 in Orangeburg, NY by Fred Fein, the company began with a few, small wooden figures ­called Wedgies ­ that were created to help children explore dramatic play. Over the decades, the company evolved into a major supplier for the education market, offering products such as classroom furniture, lofts, hardwood blocks, educational games and toys, gross-motor products, construction toys, art equipment, and more. In the last few years Guidecraft has branched out to the consumer market, with offerings on hand-painted and hand-carved furniture, licensed Major League Baseball furniture, and a great selection of products for children for all facets of the home.

The company still sells Wedgies (now by the thousands, not the hundreds) and is still family-owned and operated, with Fred¹s son, Jason, at the helm. Our design office was recently relocated to Tuxedo, New York, to better serve the members of the design team. Warehousing, customer service and operations are located in Winthrop, Minnesota. Products are sourced globally and sold wholesale only.

Guidecraft thanks the Tuxedo community for the warm welcome it has received. For more information please visit or call 845-915-3388.

Each month, the Chamber names a member business the Spotlight on Business. The program focuses the local community on a single business to learn more about what it does, who they are, and what they have to offer. If you would like to be next month's Spotlight on Business, contact a chamber officer today.
