TUALATIN, Or - Cabinet Vision user Chad Barker, CEO of Barker Cabinets, a company that provides high-quality custom products designed and assembled by its customers, has been named a recipient of a Woodworking Network Wood Industry 40 Under 40 Award, Class of 2017.
Within the past few years, Barker has tripled the size of the company’s facility, doubled its workforce, and established Barker Modern, a new line of custom cabinetry for do-it-yourselfers in search of modern flare.
“Every day my goal is to accomplish one task after another and the combination of those tasks is what sets the company apart,” says Barker, who believes in meeting small goals that ultimately lead to major accomplishments. “Eventually, you look back and five years have gone by, and you can see that you’re in a different spot than when you started. On the weekend, I can be with my family, look back and feel good about what I did each week.”
Barker views his 40 Under 40 Award as recognition for the collective hard work of every team member at Barker Cabinets.
“All of our accomplishments are company-wide, and it’s something that we can all feel good about,” he said of the award.
Now in its second year, the Wood Industry 40 Under 40 Award was established by Woodworking Network to honor leaders and rising talent poised to influence the future of North American wood products manufacturing. Awards will be presented on July 18 at a special Leadership Reception to precede the annual AWFS Fair, which takes place July 19-22.
