Over our long history producing church pews and other worship seating, we have maintained our commitment to using only the finest materials. Dumas never uses plywood, particleboard or any type of veneer in the construction of our church pews. Dumas is located in the heart of hardwood timber country and this allows us to secure top quality hardwoods at very competitive prices due to lower transportation expense. Other church pew companies incur costly transportation costs on solid wood materials which encourage them to offer church pews made of plywood, particleboard and veneers to save money. By purchasing from Dumas you are assured more of each dollar invested goes towards the quality furniture we manufacture and not transportation cost of raw materials. In fact, you will see that often our solid wood church pews are less expensive than other pew company’s plywood pews.
