Don Casebier, Bierson CEO, said that
his company was looking at new ways
to put panel components together, and
liked the Valinge technology.
Bierson Corp. signed a license agreement with Valinge for the use of Threespine click furniture technology which
enables rapid furniture assembly without
tools, screws, fasteners or other parts.
Bierson met Valinge at IWF in Atlanta
several years ago and saw the technology.
They later visited the Valinge research
and development center in Sweden. The
two companies continued with testing and development that resulted in a
Casebier said that Threespine works
with a variety of panel-based products in
both wood and plastic for many of the
projects Bierson produces.
Bierson has developed a national
reputation for making three-dimensional surfaces that simulate leather, wood

recently that he is pursuing the purchase
of additional new technology equipment.
The company’s aim has always been
to pioneer and perfect new techniques
