The Overholtzer family did not plan to sell their business, but was forced to do so, due to an unfortunate circumstance and the resulting situation that was thrust upon them due to government regulations. The Overholtzers, members of the Old Order German Baptist faith (similar to Mennonite or Amish) are committed Christians as well as wonderful craftsmen.
While Imperial did purchase some assets of the Overholtzer Company, other members of the family formed a new business, named Overholtzer Pews, to continue their work and the family tradition of making quality church furniture. The new business set up operations in Montana, not in California. Our recommendation is to consider the Overholtzer Pews
company, although Imperial does a good job also.
In regards to our recommendation of Born Again Pews
, here is a small business that has been producing quality church furniture for several years while offering great pricing. Their introduction into the field has caused several of the other manufacturer's to lower thier prices as well. While many newer companies are undercapitalized, this does not seem to be the case here. Smaller companies also usually have lower overhead and costs and can be more competitive in their pricing structure, hence our recommendation. Another newer company worth considering is Affordable Pews
