As another year comes to our close, our family is reflecting on the past year and planning what’s to come. We’re extremely thankful to share that 2017 has been one of our greatest years yet.
In the past year alone, we opened the new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, made the Canada Profit 500 list (and, in fact, were the only woodworking business in the country to do so), won four awards from the London Home Builders’ Association, were nominated for the title of “Most Outstanding Home Kitchen” at the provincial level with Ontario Home Builders’ Association and have created two business partnerships which will strengthen our relations across the entire province.

The 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility we acquired and renovated will allow us to triple our workforce over the next three to five years as we continue to expand to multiple domestic and international markets. We’re extremely fortunate to be ranked as the fastest growing custom cabinetry business in not only London, but in all of Canada.

Since beginning in 2006, our business has grown more than we could have imagined. Starting out with only 5 employees to now staffing over 30, every member of our team has become a part of our family dream. Whether it’s at our showroom located in Hyde Park, our new manufacturing facility where we produce all of our materials in nearby Strathroy, or on-site in homes as we install projects, our team continues to grow. As we continue to win new business and create more partnerships, we anticipate expanding even further and bringing more employment opportunities to the community.
Each year, we strive to make our business better than the year before. This means continuous improvement and training for every area of our company. We are so thankful for your continued support and business, and look forward to starting the new year off strong.
From our family to yours, wishing you a very happy holiday and a great New Year!
