St. Catherine of Siena Church in Wilmington, DE was interested in new church pews. Deacon Francis Staab and Pastor Fr. John Hynes at St. Catherine were interested in curved church pews which add the feeling of community to the congregation only radius pews offer.  

The parish also wished to avoid the problems of delaminating that occurs with veneer pew supports and pew backs offered by other companies.  Veneer pew supports often delaminate from floor cleaning and are near impossible to refinish down the road.   

Egan's Church Furnishings and Restorations worked with the design engineers at Ratigan-Schottler on ideas for fabricating an all solid curved pew seat, pew back and solid pew supports with no veneer in the pew construction.  Egan’s then had custom solid 1st and select solid red oak radius (curved) church pews delivered and installed at the renovated St. Catherine of Siena Church.  

There was a very tight window for installation of the new pews (5 days) and required Egan’s project management skills to coordinate in person meetings with the parish, the flooring contractor and communicating directly with the Ratigan-Schottler Manufacturing engineers and installation crew.  

Egan’s was on site for delivery of the new church pews and did a walk through inspection with Deacon Francis upon installation, “Jim & Bob Egan’s personal service is unmatched in the industry.”
