By Paul Sova, president Showplace Cabinetry
Right now, the American cabinet industry is facing one of its most challenging times. Consolidations, foreign competition, rising materials costs and difficulty in finding workers for the building trades all mean that each cabinet company is working harder to achieve growth.
Fortunately, Showplace is bucking a national trend with sales increases over last year—but not without conscious effort and a determination to be the best. Some Showplace dealers are so busy they are building new showrooms and expanding their operations. Others are adding complementary services to increasingly be one-stop shops for building and remodeling consumers. Success comes in many forms, and Showplace is proud to be a part of the business success of cabinet dealers across the nation. The growth of our customers gives us confidence for the future of our company and our industry.
We’ve found that when you have the right product—and are never afraid of upgrading and improving that product—along with the right people, a company is well positioned to meet the challenges of a competitive time. We’ve worked hard to streamline our systems, maximize our efficiencies and forge a reputation as a progressive, responsive and growing cabinet manufacturer.
That gives our dealer customers—and North American consumers—a definite edge in making their own plans for the future. Dealers can expand their business, adding new displays and services, and customers can confidently place orders for innovative, fashion-forward cabinetry, knowing that Showplace will be there to deliver—on time, on budget and on trend. It’s a partnership for success that is founded on doing things right.
Meanwhile, our Showplace team continues to grow to meet the demands of cabinet consumers. Our employee-owners are looking to the future and planning for the next phase of growth at Showplace. We’re filling positions and maintaining a strong flow of cabinets as we confidently continue to grow our company and meet the needs of our partners.
