About

Polywood’s mission is to create spaces where friends and family can gather, relax and connect.  They achieve this by producing beautiful, durable furniture created from recycled milk jugs.  As demand for Polywood Furniture increased the need to automate also increased.  Building upon a semi-automatic process which Polywood engineers developed, Criterion helped to expand this automation into a fully automated milling, assembly system.
