WEI Sold Out


Students at Wood Enterprise Institute Students at Wood Enterprise Institute

May 14, 2014 –  

It’s the time of the year when the Wood Enterprise Institute traditionally is holding an Open House to report its achievement. However, due to the success of this year’s team, we decided to communicate our achievements by email to save the time for production and distribution of the orders received.

By April 18th, all 100 of the cutting boards scheduled for production had sold out. Through the use of smart marketing involving outlets such as the Blacksburg Farmer's Market and the CNRE Awards banquet, the product was sold out 30 days ahead of time and we obtained quality customer feedback. By selling 100 cutting boards, the WEI program brought in revenues of $5,800.00 with $3,700.00 in net profit. 

Thank you all for supporting WEI throughout the school year! Special thanks goes to our sponsors (listed right) for their continued backing and to David Jones, SBIO wood shop manager, a person who puts his students first!
