From Paul’s Desk
By Paul Sova, president Showplace Cabinetry
Showplace Cabinetry had a record-setting year of sales in 2017, breaking our previous sales record set in 2016 and leading into our best January ever in 2018. We are proud of that achievement—and we know we owe it all to a national network of professional cabinet dealers, sophisticated, design-savvy consumers across North America, and employee owners who build their company pride into every cabinet we craft.
While our growth positions us among the leaders in American cabinet manufacturing, we are not resting on our laurels. Driven by a spirit of innovation and a determination to maintain our commitment to on-time, affordable, quality cabinetry, Showplace made significant upgrades to our EVO and door manufacturing operations at the end of 2017. Our investment in state-of-the-art equipment streamlines our manufacturing process, increases capacity and sets the stage for the anticipated demand of this year’s remodeling season. These production investments ensure that we can maintain the timeliness and the quality that are the hallmarks of Showplace Cabinetry. For homeowners, this means that choosing Showplace and our incredible range of colors and leading edge design will keep your project on schedule and on budget.
We’ve also invested in recruiting and retaining the best production team in America. Our people are the greatest resource at Showplace, and we’ve invested in making our South Dakota facilities places where anyone would want to work. We’re giving our employee-owners the tools they need to continue to build quality cabinetry.
Our record sales for the past two years also reinforce our belief that Showplace growth depends on our company leading the way—in quality, in design, in service and in dependability. Those qualities are built into our mission and have shaped our company since its founding in 1999. This year will see new products, new colors and exciting cabinet ideas, but the way we do business will never change.
We expect 2018 to be another great year for our dealer network and for Showplace Cabinetry as we create fashion-forward cabinets for projects throughout the United States and Canada. This is an exciting time—and we’re looking forward to continuing to grow and reinvest in the future.
