(SAVANNAH/BLUFFTON) Jeff Klein, co-owner of Closet Specialist, along with his son Josh, will attend the Woodworking Machinery and Supply Expo from October 26-28 in Toronto Canada. This is Canada’s largest woodworking event. There, Klein will be a featured speaker and plans to unveil a French version of his 16-page color pamphlet titled “Design and Construction Techniques.”
The pamphlet’s sub title is ‘Builders, Architects and Interior Designers Guide for Creating more Closet and Storage Space in New Construction and Remodeling Projects.’ To date, more than 10,000 copies have been printed and are being distributed to closet and storage professionals both nationally and internationally. Klein expects those numbers to double with this most recent release of the French version.
The guide covers every area of potential storage space a home could have, from small reach-in closets to majestic walk-in closets. It covers the most common obstacles that impede space efficiency and their remedies. Klein’s opening introduction of the booklet reads, “For decades designers and installers of closet and storage organizing systems have complained, ‘If only the builder had done _______ differently, we could have designed in so much more storage space.’”
The booklet’s first edition was unveiled March 21-23 at the 3rd Annual CLOSETS & Home Organizations Conference & Expo in Chicago. Two thousand copies were initially printed and all were gone after the first day of the conference.
“I can’t wait to see how the pamphlet does at the Toronto expo,” says Klein, who authored the booklet and serves on the Board of Directors of the national trade organization Association of Closet & Storage Professionals (ACSP, www.closets.org).
“It’s truly something that any architect, builder or interior designer can use, so I think this event is a great place to show Canada what we’ve been doing here in the states.”
Klein is using this booklet locally by offering ‘Lunch & Learn’ 30 minute presentations to Savannah and Hilton Head area architectural, design and construction firms.
“My presentation schedule is filling up rapidly and with lunch on me, it’s a win-win,” states Klein.
