Snap-together assembly solution provider Lockdowel will kick-off the Cabinet Maker Association Event Oct. 18 at the Lancaster Resort and Conference Center. Participants will also tour Lancaster Cabinet Company, Keystone Wood Specialties and Kitchenview Custom Cabinets.
“We are excited to show companies that by switching to Lockdowel Eclips fastening systems, shops will see an increase in production by at least 60%,” Lockdowel President Bryan Koelling says. “With Lockdowel glue-less, tool-less assembly solutions cabinets can be flat-packed and assembled at the job site in a third of the time that it takes using traditional methods.”
Lockdowel assembly is intuitive and easy and now being used by furniture and cabinet companies to strongly snap-together complete cabinet systems and furniture pieces. Lockdowel solutions are AWI tested and WI certified. This July the company won the AWFS Visionary Award for their “clickable” drawer slides, which saves countless hours in drawer assembly without using screws or tools.
The CMA has been hosting high-value events such as this since 1998 as a means of connecting similar-sized shops around North America with the purpose of sharing best practices and business acumen, while learning how other businesses do what they do. The regional events typically involve plant tours, educational seminars, networking, and simply a chance to talk shop and share issues, solutions and even projects. Although they are dubbed "regional," these events typically draw attendees from across the country as well as Canada.
“You don’t have to be a member of the CMA to participate in this event, so it’s a great way to join us and see what you’ve been missing,” CMA Executive Director, Amanda Conger says.
