And It Shows In The Quality Of Our Products.Drop by our offices at Snoozer, and you’re likely to find our best friends by our side. Dogs are simply part of our culture. Nancie Cheskey works in inside and outside sales. We found her office full of dogs. “It’s one of the greatest perks of the job, I think,” Nancie says. “The saddest part of the day is leaving for work and closing the door and leaving your dog at home.”
You already know how much we love dogs. That’s why, when we set out to design and manufacture a dog bed, we carefully consider what a dog would want. At Snoozer, we think about dogs. A lot. It’s a borderline obsession, which is okay, because it leads to better products for you and your dog.
“Yeah, it’s true. We think about dogs all the time,” says Gary O’Donnell, Vice President of Marketing for O’Donnell Industries. “We’re proud of our commitment to dogs’ comfort and our commitment to practical dog lifestyle issues.”
One example of Snoozer’s commitment are dog beds made with Outlast® Technology, interactive technology that keeps your dog “Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold.”® Dogs stay warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer. Sweat is also reduced.
Again, Outlast® Technology is just one example.
When we think about your dog, we wonder if he or she would want it soft or firm? High or low? That’s important, certainly, but at Snoozer, it goes deeper than that. Is the bed going to be just as comfortable for you dog years from now as it is today? Come to think of it, how well will this bed accommodate your best friend as he ages?
The point is, all of this deep thought not only goes into the construction of each Snoozer dog bed, but into the materials we choose, for the comfort of your dog today and for years to come.
We could manufacture cheaper dog beds, and make them available in bins at your local pet shop or big box stores. But cheaper is no value. Besides, cheaper isn’t being fair to you. And you know what? Cheaper isn’t being fair to your dog, either.
Now There’s Twice The Room For Improvement.
We at Snoozer Pet Products are proud to announce the move into our new, 50,000 square-foot digs is now complete. The new building includes 43,000 square feet of manufacturing space, almost doubling the capacity of our previous facility. Tails are wagging here at Snoozer as this move makes an immediate difference in manufacturing functionality and operations.
That’s great news for customers—and their dogs—both of whom have become accustomed to Snoozer’s American-made quality and the capability of shipping “made-to-order” products.
Said Gary O’Donnell, Vice President of Snoozer, “Moving to our new facility has created opportunities for us to implement lean manufacturing principles, which will be key to improved efficiencies and improved delivery performance.”
So what does that mean for your dogs? For one, it means shortening the cycle between the time the order for a made-to-order product is placed and the time is delivered. All of which translates to even better stuff, delivered to your door even faster.
In addition, we at Snoozer have always taken tremendous pride in the fact that the majority of our products are “made in the U.S.A.” The new facility is in keeping with our long-term strategy. “Ultimately,” O’Donnell adds, “by improving our delivery schedules we hope to grow our business and continue to grow jobs in the U.S.”
Although Snoozer has come a long way, we didn’t have to move very far. We simply moved from one side of Greenville, South Carolina to another.
We should be happy in our new home for years to come as we at Snoozer continue to enhance our capabilities and operations, meeting and exceeding the ever-expanding expectations of our most loyal customers—you and your dog.
You may have heard through the grapevine, but Snoozer is moving! Not all that far, but it is something that has everyone in our company very excited! Our new digs essentially double our space (we now have over 43,000SF) over our previous spot.
This is going to be great news for our customers, as the new facility will present a significant upgrade in functionality and operations and will allow us to work more efficiently. It is opening the door for us to eventually hire 39 new employees.
And we’ve had a lot of encouragement along the way.
“South Carolina has been a fabulous home to our company from its inception in 1985, and we are excited to continue our growth here in Greenville County,” said Gary O’Donnell, Vice President of Marketing for O’Donnell Industries. “The encouragement we have received from our customers, suppliers and employees, along with the accelerating demand we see for our product lines both domestically and internationally clinched our decision to expand here. We appreciate the support of the Greenville Area Development Corporation, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, and all who helped to make this announcement possible.”
“O’Donnell’s decision to establish its roots in South Carolina, and continue to grow more than 20 years later, speaks volumes about the entrepreneurial spirit that exists within our state. We congratulate O’Donnell as they invest $1.8 million and create 39 new jobs in Greenville County,” said South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
Unfortunately, this move will present a bit of a ‘challenge’ in the short term. Because we’re moving (literally) everything (people, sewing machines, fabrics, computers, desks, etc, etc…) our ability to produce our custom, handmade dog beds, car seat, pet products AND ship during this time will be significantly hampered. Effective today, July 11, all orders placed through our site likely won’t ship until the week of July 21 and our excellent customer service team will have limited availability.
This is a bummer, for sure. And we feel your pain. To help you out, retail customers that are willing to wait a bit longer for their Snoozer will receive 5% off and free shipping to boot off ALL online purchases through July 21. Just use code: NEWHOME at the cart or checkout page on our website to receive the discount.
This is a very exciting time for Snoozer and we couldn’t do it without the support of our loyal customers. We appreciate your patience as we enter in this transition. Cheers everyone! We’ll see you on the other side!
Our new location is:
561 Bessie Road
Piedmont, SC 29673
Welcome to the newly refreshed Snoozer website. We’ve completely redesigned our website to make purchasing dog beds and other pet products easier and more enjoyable.
Snoozer is a company, “by dog people, for dog people.” Simply put, that means we care for our dogs every bit as much as you care for yours. Which explains why we’re committed to providing handcrafted, made-to-order dog beds and other pet products that satisfy pet owners every bit as much as they satisfy their pets. We think the new site better reflects the quality and craftsmanship that goes into every Snoozer product.
We are a family-owned business headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina. We began doing business in 1985 with the intention of manufacturing and selling the finest dog beds, dog sofas and pet accessories available at affordable prices. The great majority of our products are assembled by hand here in the USA.
It’s our hope that refreshed design, intuitive navigation and updated descriptions will not only make the site more informative, but will make your shopping experience here a convenient and pleasant one.
To celebrate we’re offering 20% off your entire purchase from now through June 20 by using the code: NEWSITE20 at checkout. It’s our way of saying thank you for visiting Snoozer, a company for dog people, by dog people.
