HARTFORD, CT - Custom cabinetry firm Express Kitchens says it acquired appliance dealer New Valley Sales, and moved it into its new West Springfield, MA Express Kitchens show room.

Express Kitchens says the buyout lets it augment its growing kitchen cabinet business with the sale of high end appliances.

Targeting builders, contractors, apartment owners, kitchen designers and their customers through its new location, Express Kitchens plans to work with builders on large condo projects, new home divisions and apartment renovations.

A grand opening is slated for later this month, as Express Kitchen readies a new 55,000 square foot warehouse in Hartford, CT to service all seven Express Kitchen locations in Connecticut and Massachestts and its wholesale kitchen cabinet and countertop business throughout the U.S. East Coast.

Founded in 2002, 44-employee Express Kitchens says it is the fastest growing and one of the largest kitchen cabinet manufacturer- retailer-installer in Connecticut, having completed over 5,000 kitchen projects. Express Kitchens is advertising help wanted for kitchen sales, kitchen installer, expedite, countertop fabricator, granite installer, granite templater, and install manager.

Working with independent cabinet installers, Express Kitchens  kitchen showrooms in Hartford, Newington, Orange, Hamden, Waterbury, Brookfield, CT – plus West Springfield, MA - feature its own manufactured “Star Cabinets” line along with Aristokraft, Armstrong, Homecrest, and Europa lines. For builders, Express Kitchens says it can turn around orers in 36 hours, and deliver to and even install at the job site.
