Mound House, NV, May 24, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Glue-less, tool-less Lockdowel Assembly enables Pro Cabinet Solutions to run leaner while increasing profits. The snap-together assembly system allows the northern Nevada cabinet maker to turn around jobs quicker with fewer employees.
“With Lockdowel one production worker can produce cabinet boxes on our Laguna LD-4 CNC machine, flat pack them and ship them, while our other employees sell, design and serve new customers,” ProCabinet Solutions Owner and President, Rob Amster says. “Assembly is simple, yet super sturdy at the build site, and the job is completed in a third of the time. Our customers truly benefit!”
“We can compete with bigger shops and even the Chinese because Lockdowel not only eliminates the time-sucking step of gluing, its automation allows us to produce three times as much product without needing more employees,” Amster says.
Adaptation and versatility is the “it factor” that has enabled Pro Cabinet Solutions to thrive for more than 20 years. Amster, with a former partner, bought his father’s cabinet shop in the 90’s when it was carrying a $200,000.00 operating deficit. Within two years they had it making a profit by finding new market niches.
“In the 80’s my dad’s company was mainly supplying cabinets for retail Christian bookstores across the nation,” Amster explains. “Their cabinetry creations provided bookstores with attractive 'knock down' displays that gave large retail areas a warmer, homier feel and enhanced the buying experience. With bookstores declining, we had to find new ways to add value to businesses.”
Amster and team quickly became masters of adaptation, production management and staying ahead of the latest trends. “We expanded our business to include cafés and coffee shops with our cabinetry becoming part of the high-end décor and clean style designers wanted. We learned how to bring designers’ ideas and visions to reality,” Amster adds.
Pro Cabinet Solutions diversified into the commercial market, making cabinetry for dentists’ offices, hospitals and educational institutes. Like the company’s value proposition to bookstores, these businesses appreciated their design with purpose—facilitating organization, hidden storage, enhanced style, or all of these.
Today, Pro Cabinet Solutions has entered the home building arena by giving builders a unique edge in offering custom, exquisite cabinets for retreat getaways in the Nevada and Northern California area. “Our cabinetry for these mansions runs $150,000 to $300,000,” Amster explains. “That is just the cabinets. These creations have to be one of the primary drivers in the home’s value to justify the cost—and they are!”
Choosing to fasten cabinets with the Lockdowel glue-less, inter-locking assembly system is the way Pro Cabinet Solutions is leading the industry in versatility and production. “Lockdowel is pivotal in changing the way cabinets are built for the better,” Amster says. “When the entire production step of gluing is eliminated with improved functionality and efficiency, this is a true breakthrough. The Pro Cabinet Solutions team will use the Lockdowel assembly method to leapfrog our business to even higher levels of success. With Lockdowel our next venture, is our soon to be available on-line catalog. We think that shops in our area will appreciate our speed of manufacturing and on site assembly our on-line ordering will allow.”
