​Buceys lead at Inova

Sarah and Guy Bucey are at the helm of Inova, a furniture manufacturer located in the Northeastern Industrial Park in Guilderland Center.

GUILDERLAND — Sarah and Guy Bucey, a husband-and-wife team, have been promoted to leadership roles at Inova, located in the Northeastern Industrial Park in Guilderland Center. Founded in 2001, Inova manufactures multifunctional, space-saving furniture like modern Murphy beds that pull down from vertical storage.

Guy Bucey, the director of operations, has been named chief executive officer. And Sarah Bucey, the director of finance, has been named chief financial officer.

“The company is growing and the structure should recognize it,” said Loren Sherman, founder, owner, and inventor of Inova products, in a release from Inova.

Mr. Bucey, a decorated Marine, started at Inova nearly eight years ago as a factory supervisor, advanced to production manager, and has been director of operations for the past three years. He has become a speaker for national woodworking organizations, promoting leadership within the workplace and says the Marines taught him to be a leader.

Ms. Bucey graduated from the University at Albany with a bachelor’s of science degree in business administration, finance, and management. Between deployments, they got married. Over the past four-and-a-half years, she has advanced from materials manager; to financial manager; and for the past two years, director of finance.

The company more than doubled factory space twice in three years, starting from 18,000 square feet to its current 77,000 square feet.

“Manufacturing in the USA is a passion of both Buceys and Sherman,” the release said. “They are committed to keeping the operations in upstate New York and changing the perception of manufacturing as a career choice,” the release said.

The Buceys, who live less than 10 minutes from the factory, see their new roles as an opportunity to get Inova more involved in the local community.
