‘How To Build An International Brand’ Locally Designed Chimes and Dolls Go Worldwide Ulster County is home to many growing and dynamic businesses, but perhaps none more recognizable in name than Woodstock Chimes and Tonner Dolls. Both have grown into recognizable brands around the world and the CEOs of those companies have offered to speak to Chamber members about some of the secrets to their success. The guest speakers at the May 24th Chamber breakfast meeting will be Garry Kvistad, owner of Woodstock Chimes in Shokan, and Robert Tonner, owner of the Tonner Doll Co. in Kingston. “How to Build an International Brand,” is the subject of their presentation, scheduled from 7:30-9 a.m. May 24th at the Kingston Best Western Plus. Tonner, a world-renowned doll sculptor and creator, said he would first show business leaders what his company does because “No. 1 in building an international brand is having the right product.”

Tonner began his career in New York’s Garment District. He designed the Blassport label for many years, catching the eye of the fashion world’s trend-spotters. He started the Robert Tonner Doll Co. in a oneroom studio 21 years ago. His “muse” Tyler Wentworth, arguably the most famous of his dolls, is based on a fictional 7th Avenue fashion designer. He has since equaled the Wentworth success with countless other collectible dolls representing characters from “Gone With the Wind,” “The Wizard of Oz,” Garry Kvistad Robert Tonner “Twilight,” “Harry Potter” as well “I had to set the company apart from the as super heroes like Wonder Woman, competition in the states and then get noticed Batman and Superman. wherever else,” he said. “I also plan to discuss Tonner said he would share with business leaders how he got his company noticed.

Ashokan Center Marking 50 Years Explore the Outdoors at May 31st Mixer Maybe you visited the Ashokan Center as a 4th grader, but you haven’t been back. Well, now’s your chance. The Chamber’s next Business-After-Hours Mixer is from 5-7 p.m. May 31 at the outdoor conference and retreat center at 477 Beaverkill Road in Olivebridge. Four new sustainable lodges will be in the spotlight for tours by business leaders. The mixer is sponsored by Pattison, Koskey, Howe & Bucci, CPAs. “We are celebrating our 50th year in business,” said Gina Gould, the Ashokan Center’s executive director. “We wanted to celebrate that with our constituents, who are Ulster businesses. A lot of the stuff we do, we have to buy from our local businesses to support our programs and our endeavors at the Ashokan Center. “A lot of companies haven’t seen our new buildings, which have been open for three years now.” The Ashokan Center, whose theme is “Where Nature Inspires,” is located on 385 acres of woodlands, ravines, ponds and open spaces traversed by the Esopus Creek. The property’s Cathedral Gorge includes waterfall views. “It’s pretty extraordinary,” Gould said. The property also features one of the few surviving covered bridges in the state. The bridge will soon be renovated thanks to a grant from the New York City DEP. Gould said the campus has enough space to sleep 150 people and the Esopus Lodge, where the Mixer will be centered, features a performance gallery and conference center. The dining hall can accommodate 180. “We’re a well-kept secret,” Gould says. “We’re a big part of this area’s history.” The Ashokan Center hosts corporate retreats, weddings, computer technology camps, bladesmith and blacksmith groups, weddings and religious organizations. For example, 15 tribes of Native Americans have been coming to the center for the last six years, Gould said. “They feel the area is very sacred,” she said. “We make them feel just really great about being there at the same time.” The center is also famous for running music and dance camps for the last 36 years in association with Ashokan Music and Dance Camps. A peek at the center’s calendar (www.ashokancenter.com) shows a host of concerts, dances and other musical events. However, the Ashokan Center’s most famous visitors are the throngs of students who converge on the property

every day during the school year. Gould said students from throughout the tri-state area come upstate during the week to learn colonial history, forest ecology “and where their water comes from.” “We are the oldest outdoor education center in the state of New York,” Gould said. Gould said the students learn to “build community” and that’s primarily why the schools bring them. “Some of them have been coming for over 40 years and they come because we help an entire 4th grade or 5th grade or 6th grade to build community among the kids and to become team members,” she said. “When they leave us, we see a lot more leadership roles, and a lot more team spirit and a lot less bullying. It’s pretty cool.” Gould said the program has been going on for so long now that the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of past students are coming. “Some of our past students still have the fire-pokers they made when they came in 4th grade or the candleholders they made in the tinsmithing shop,” she said. The center’s signature benefit each year is the “Summer Hoot,” which is Aug. 26-28 this year featuring 33 bands. (For more information, go to www.homeofthehoot.com). “It’s a great family weekend where you feel really safe about having your kids here,” Gould said. “We get several thousand people coming to the ‘Summer Hoot.’ All of the proceeds go out our outdoor education program.” The ‘Winter Hoot” is held the first weekend in February and has drawn such luminaries as the late Pete Seeger. SUNY New Paltz formerly owned the Ashokan Center property from 1967 to 2008, when it was sold to the Open Space Institute and New York City DEP. The center is now a non-profit. “It used to be that the Ashokan Center was fairly closed to the public,” she said. “Now that we’re able to be more open to the public, we’re really looking forward to collaborating with our fellow colleagues here in Ulster County. “Our motto is ‘Think Local.’ It’s all about thinking local.” The Ashokan Center can be reached at (845) 657-

8333 and www.ashokancenter.org. Chamber mixers are a great way to network and promote your business. Be sure to bring plenty of business cards. This free networking event is open to Chamber members and prospective members. Reservations are a must and can be made by calling the Chamber office at (845) 338-5100 or by registering online at www.ulsterchamber.org.

J & J Tree Service Branches Out 28-Ton Crane Makes Tree Removal A Cinch If you want to get rid of a tree on your property, J & J Tree Works in Saugerties can do the job. Likewise, if you want to get rid of all the trees on 7.5 acres, as the developers of the Williams Lake Project in Rosendale did, J & J Tree Works is also the company to call. J & J was chosen as part of the Williams Lake Project pledge to “Keep it Local” and give preference to local businesses in the development of the resort. Michael Ivino, the GM at J & J Tree Works, called the initial removal of trees at Williams Lake “grueling,” but much of the wood was reused as woodchips and beams for the new main building. “It was all done in an environmentally friendly way, where we reused nearly everything we cut down,” Ivino said. “It’s nice to give back to our planet, and there’s definitely a demand for it.” J & J is hoping to do more work on the Williams Lake Project, but the company also removes residential trees and offers other services, such as stump grinding,

pruning and trimming, tree advice, chipping and lot clearing. “We’re a full-fledged tree service and we also operate two saw mills,” Ivino said. Ivino said the busiest time of the year is late spring and summer. “Spring is the busiest because people are cleaning up the vegetation that came down over the winter and they’re looking at trees that were damaged by the snow and ice,” he said. “They basically wake up from the winter and they want to do a spring cleanup. “It also gets kind of crazy in the fall when people want cleanup done, and we’re fortunate this year we worked right through the winter.” J & J is also available for emergency tree removal. The cost to remove a residential tree varies and is based on how long it takes, Ivino said. “We’re usually competitive,” Ivino said. “We own and operate our own crane. The 95-foot, 28-ton crane allows us to sometimes remove trees in a single shot.

We can take trees down in a fraction of what it takes other companies and that saves people money.” J & J Tree Service, owned by Kevin Brady, has been in business for 22 years. Ivino has only been general manager for two years, but he already has seen that the company is “all about the customer.” “We take care of the customer start to finish,” he said. “Our motto is we like to leave the job better than what we came into. We leave no footprint. “The most unique part about this job is we bring everything back to our shop and it’s processed and handed back out to the economy. “Whether it’s the woodchips we bring back and we sell, or the logs we bring back and process and sell for firewood, or the logs we bring back and process for our tables, benches and window frames … everything is recycled and reused.” The company, which employs four to six people in the winter and about a dozen during its busy season, is normally hired to remove trees, but its crane has come in

J & J Tree Works crew at work handy for other work as well. “We set swimming pools,” Ivino said. “We’ve put hot tubs in when you can’t maneuver around the house and you have to go over the house.” J & J was the company that took down the 300-year-old Balmville Tree, which predated the Revolutionary War and was the oldest of its kind in the Eastern part of the nation. A traffic hazard, the removal made headlines last year as groups rallied to save the historic cottonwood tree. “We felt we took care of the tree in the best way possible and we tried to give back to the community,” he said. You also might have seen the company’s Continued on page 6

Building International Brands Continued from page 1 how I see growing the foothold that we have overseas.” Tonner calls himself “the reluctant businessman” and said he is never in a hurry to offer advice. “However, there are areas in business culture that we’re pretty good at here,” he said. “Also, I’d want to say look for the help out there—I’ve found local and state government eager to help.” Tonner Doll (www.tonnerdoll.com) sells products in more than 40 countries. “Collectibles are having a rough go of it at the moment because of the economy, but we continue to build interest overseas,” he said. “A big challenge that we face constantly is keeping pricing competitive and keeping quality at a certain level. Because we manufacture overseas, market forces play a big role in the bottom line.” Kvistad said he plans to discuss not only how to create a brand, but a category for a product that didn’t exist before. Woodstock Chimes offers a variety of

unique, musically tuned wind chimes, bells and gongs, crystal sun catchers and other musical products. He also will offer his insights on manufacturing here and abroad, employment issues and “the creative process.” “I will also talk about why we moved to this region from the Midwest,” Kvistad said. Kvistad and his wife, Diane, were 29 years old and teachers when they visited Ulster County over Easter in 1979, drawn to the area by its artistic reputation. The couple settled here and opened Woodstock Percussion. “The name is important,” he said. “The quality is important. The authenticity of what you do is very important these days.” “I’m a professional musician and that is important. My whole business is built

around sounds and music. It’s really important for our manufacturing that the quality goes into the sound-producing element and that’s kind of unique.” Kvistad writes blogs on his website (www.chimes.com), which is chock-full of information about his company and what it does. “It’s important for people to read about what you do and understand it and respect it,” he said. “I’ve also learned that rather than spend a lot of money on legal protections, such as patents, we’ve put our emphasis and energy into marketing.” Kvistad said about 10 percent of his company’s sales are overseas. “It’s growing right now in England, Germany and Canada especially,” he said. Kvistad, who employs 40 people, said health care is a major cost, but the company provides full coverage and 401k

plans to keep talented people. While the company’s manufacturing operations are all abroad, Kvisted said he puts a lot of effort into training. “People are concerned about jobs leaving this country, but in our case, if we hadn’t moved the manufacturing overseas, we would have been out of business within a couple of years,” he said. “Our competitors were all there. We retained 40 really good jobs that otherwise wouldn’t be there.” Kvistad said he also may touch on the charitable arm of his business, the Woodstock Chimes Fund. “We help sponsor and support lots of organizations and people,” he said. Chamber breakfast programs are a great way to network with other local business leaders and stay on top of current events. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. For more information or to register, call the Chamber at (845) 338-5100 or go online at www.ulsterchamber.org.

‘Your Center For Family Fun’ Patel’s Kingston Lanes Will Bowl You Over For years, the Hoe Bowl on the Hill was a 52-lane bowling alley on East Chester Street Bypass that offered … well, mainly bowling. In October 2013, owners A.C. and Roopal Patel bought the business and opened the Patel’s Kingston Lanes Recreation Center with the theme “Your Center for Family Fun.” You’ll not only find bowling at Patel’s Kingston Lanes, but also laser tag, an arcade and so much more. “We just remodeled the whole bowling alley this past June,” said GM Francine Kaiser. “We are completely modernized and remodeled. “We still have some work to do, but all of our pinsetters, scoring and lanes are brand new.” With the closure of Ferraro’s Mid-City Lanes in 2014, Patel’s Kingston Lanes finds itself all alone in the area. “We’re now the only bowling center in Kingston,” she said. Patel’s Kingston Lanes offers 40 lanes for bowling, a pro shop, an arcade and a full-service snack bar including pizza and other food and a 24-beer tap line. “We now also have a 6,000-square-foot laser tag arena,” Kaiser said. Kaiser said local businesses have used the laser tag facility for “team building exercises.” The company’s

website (www.patelskingstonlanes.com) includes business packages. “We’ve been doing that with a lot of businesses,” she said. “They should come and see what we have to offer.” For those looking for something to do at the end of the week, Kingston Lanes offers cosmic bowling with disco-style lighting after 10 p.m. on Fridays and 9 p.m. on Saturdays. Kaiser said the building also has a new heating and air-conditioning system and the dropped ceiling was removed and opened up to its original. “It looks amazing with the old wooden truss,” she said. “We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback because the bowling alley hadn’t had anything done to it in probably 20 plus years.” Kaiser said Patel’s Kingston Lanes has reached out to the young.

Patel’s Kingston Lanes Recreation Center “We try to do a lot of things for kids,” she said. “We have a youth program on Saturday mornings.” During the summer between June and August, Patel’s Kingston Lanes features a “Kids Bowl Free” program offering two free games for young people. “We try to get them out of the house and more active and exercise,” she said. “We accommodate all ages, from kids who can walk all the way up to our senior league.” On the day she was being interviewed, Kaiser noted, “I have a 96-year-old bowling today.” She added that Patel’s Kingston Lanes has it all – family affordable fun, enjoyable recreation and moderate physical exercise that anyone can do. Patel’s Kingston Lanes Recreation Center, 644 E. Chester St. in Kingston, can be reached at (845) 3381414 or www.patelskingsonlanes.com.
