I was looking around on youtube and happened upon this video. Hope it hasn't been posted before.

The entity still exists at Westfield MA, selling institutional furniture (ex: desks for schools) and bicycles, though suspect the latter are now manufactured off shore.

Here's a link to a brief history:
