Cheers to 80 Years!

“It’s incredible, 80 years and three generations! But as of June 1st Austin Waldner, great grandson of Daniel Waldner, founder of Waldner’s, will be joining as the 4th generation. How many companies can say that?”   – Stephen Waldner, Owner

“As Waldner’s celebrates our 80th Anniversary, this provides a special opportunity to look back and appreciate our storied past which continues to serve as the basis for our success and our vision for the future. Many of our clients and the professionals we have had the privilege to work with over eight decades know that our company was originally founded by our grandfather, Daniel Waldner in 1939. He instilled in all of us the importance of providing outstanding service with a commitment to excellence.”- Meredith Waldner-Stern

“Today, Waldner’s is proud to be a thriving business with over 100 remarkable, talented employees over three locations and clients throughout the nation.  We have all evolved from the traditional office space and come a long way from the standard metal desk of 1939 to providing cutting edge solutions in furniture, technology and service for multiple industries. What makes it most meaningful for us in celebrating our history is to know that since 1939, Waldner’s has and will continue to grow with our clients and provide innovative solutions for all of those we serve into the future.” – Meredith Waldner-Stern

Chief Operating Officer Ryan Osborne says “Achieving an 80-year anniversary and enjoying year-over-year growth is a credit to our employees, the loyalty of our customers, and the ability of our organization’s leadership to steer Waldner’s product and service offerings through market shifts, ever-changing workplace trends, and industry pressures. Waldner’s and our main manufacturer, Steelcase, both share the same mission of staying ahead of the curve and responding to the needs of the business community through the use of new technologies, enhanced furniture products, architectural preferences, and office services. Each of Waldner’s local markets – Westchester, New Jersey, NYC, and Long Island – are excited and ready to respond to our customers’ demands for the workplace of the future and seeing our company and our clients continue to thrive over the next 80 years!”

Cheers and thank you to those who have helped make it all possible!

Canstruction Long Island

CANSTRUCTION Long Island is an exciting design build competition where firms from the architectural, engineering and design communities create giant incredible structures that are self-supporting and made entirely out of canned food.  Once the structures are built and judged they stay on Exhibit for 2 weeks.  At the close of the event and prior to Thanksgiving all the food is donated and then distributed to local food banks.

We support The Interfaith Nutrition Network, Island Harvest Food Bank, Long Island Cares, Inc./The Harry Chapin Food Bank, and The NEST at Nassau Community College. Over the past eleven years, CANSTRUCTION has donated more than 440,000 cans of food!

Waldner’s Business Environments and NELSON & POPE have partnered up this year to create an amazing structure of the Smallfoot Yeti from Warner Bother’s new animation film Smallfoot. 

The Exhibit is open to the public now until November 12th 2018 from 8 am – 6 pm everyday located at RXR Plaza, Uniondale, NY.

Bring a can of food to donate and you can vote on your favorite structure!

Thank you for supporting the Waldner’s team in our efforts to feed the hungry on Long Island!
