INSIDE THE WOODSHOP — WARREN, RI
In the small town of Warren, Rhode Island, craftsmen and women haul in raw planks of cherrywood to saw, sand, stain, and craft into Ergatta Rowers. Each rower is crafted by several hands, each bringing unique expertise, careful precision, and deep pride to their work.
Partnered with Ergatta, WaterRower has spent the last 34 years refining their craft. To keep up with expanding demand, everything from the factory layout to the turn of the hand has been optimized to deliver the highest-quality handcrafted product at scale. And since Ergatta’s Spring 2020 launch, two separate factory buildings now stand, buzzing with woodworkers hard at work to keep up with demand.
“I’m proud and grateful of our close connection with WaterRower,” says Mike Chamberlin, Quality Engineer at Ergatta. “The WaterRower team’s manufacturing expertise benefits every inch of the process, and together we are constantly seeking new ways to increase quality and efficiency.”
