MONROVIA, CA – Decore-ative Specialties say quality workmanship, lean and green production, a large product range and responsive customer service are among the reasons for the cabinet component manufacturer's growth.

According to Joel Boyles, marketing director, lean and green initiatives play an integral role in the company's production. Kaizen events are held regularly throughout the company as Decore-ative Specialties continually looks for ways to streamline its processes. The lean process has led to other capabilities being put in place, including custom finishing and environmentally friendly finishes.

"[We also] remain focused on providing our customers with high-quality, custom cabinet components, shipped in 6-9 working days," Boyles said. The company also has in place a free, online ordering platform for obtaining cabinet components.
