Why we do it

…because we believe in what we do. SBI is not just furniture, laboratory and technology sales:
we are advocates, educators, visionaries, innovators, creators and partners.

Making a Difference

For SBI it is not just about a chair, a table, a fume hood, or an interactive whiteboard. It is about how those and every other product we support and sell will come together into a cohesive, innovative solution that will improve the working or learning environment for the people that use them on a daily basis. It is about creating solutions for you that actually improve your life and the lives of those who will use the solution.

Does our belief translate from concept to reality? We think so, and we are not alone. In October of 2014, at the annual national CEFPI conference three of the four finalists for the prestigious James D. MacConnell award included SBI solutions. The James D. MacConnell award is given each year to nationally recognize a comprehensive planning process that results in educational facilities that serve the community, enhances the educational program, and meets multiple goals. Read more about the James D. MacConnell Award.

More than any award is what the people we serve think of our work. Read below to see what our customers have to say about SBI.

More than words:

Saxton Bradley handled the complete FFE package from procurement of the products to delivery and installation. I was thoroughly satisfied with our furnishings and that is due to the diligence and expertise of Cole Saxton and SBI. I would have no reservation working with Saxton Bradley on future projects or recommending them to other schools or districts.

Steve Bradshaw, Superintendent

Sitka School District - Alaska
Your two installers just left having replaced all the bad wheels. It didn’t take them long to complete this job and they even found and repaired wheels I had not identified and listed. Having observed the process and left spare parts, I shouldn’t have any future problems. Thanks Again!! You’re the Best!!

Tom English, Lead Person

Highline Public Schools #401 - Washington
I appreciate our sales representative’s responsiveness to requests and commitment to providing new information as it becomes available. As a busy director in a growing school district, it is important to me that I trust our vendors to deliver the best quality at the best price and that I can count on them to do much of the legwork for me in finding the appropriate solutions. I recommend Saxton Bradley as a very responsive, customer-oriented organization that strives to provide a high level of value and service.

Traci Sutherland, Director of Technology

Sherwood School District - Oregon
Saxton Bradley has a very professional staff and very high quality product lines. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any project involving Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment. SBI was “there” in helping the District to meet scope, schedule and budget parameters.

Rick Dallman, Director Facilities and Maintenance

Southwest Region School District - Alaska
The furniture was delivered on time. The crew that was sent to put it together was efficient and easy to work with. They were very considerate of the teachers who were also working hard over the Winter Break to get the classrooms organized. The finished project was completed under budget, on time and to the satisfaction of the school district. Saxton Bradley made this process much less stressful. If I were to ever be in the position to open a new school again, I would definitely choose SBI to help us with the furnishings.

Barbara Roberts, Principal

Fawn Mountain Elementary School - Alaska
I found that the staff of Saxton Bradley bent over backwards to provide service, negotiate road blocks, and do exactly what they said they would on time and in a first rate manner. They negotiated with our business manager (no small feat), flexed when conditions changed and then provided quality support. If you are considering working with Saxton Bradley, I give them my strongest endorsement. Over the course of the last two years at my school and now at another of our schools, SBI has become a meaningful partner.

Steve Mauritz, Principal

Hallinan Elementary School - Oregon
You and your employees really believe in providing an excellent product and our lab is a reflection of your company’s high standards. When all the furniture and equipment arrived as promised, we were really excited but when your staff put in the extra time needed to set up the lab before Back to School Night, we were ecstatic. Your company’s customer service is the best.

Karen Lachman, Principal

Oak Creek Elementary School - Oregon
In our many dealings with Saxton Bradley, they have always been very easy to work with, courteous, and efficient with executing their contracted work for us. I have found SBI to be one of the best companies I have personally dealt with in terms of customer satisfaction. In fact they go out of their way to ensure satisfaction for their customers. I would very highly recommend Saxton Bradley services. They are a top notch organization that provides excellent services.

Thomas Mosby, Director of Career and Technical Education

South Kitsap School District - Washington
Expecting nearly 300 adult ESL students to arrive the Tueday after Labor Day, Mr. Parnell assured us that the SBI crew would leave the classrooms “cleaner than when we come in”. He was absolutely true to his word. The rooms were immaculate and neither teacher nor students were aware a major change had occurred over the holiday weekend.

Ana Solomon, Principal

Hayward Adult School - California
We have recently had the opportunity to work Saxton Bradley on a project at our school in Seattle. SBI performed in a professional, on-time and courteous manner and we are very pleased with the outcome. We would recommend Saxton Bradley to any other school considering using their services.
