Twenty percent of exhibitors - from fine wood products to high-tech applications - are appearing for the first time at Cabinets & Closets Expo in 2017. 
 
Bella IMC, a Fort Wayne, Indiana, a recent to-the-trade cabinetry launch (started by Chadwick Industries), is bringing its super-efficiently produce cabinet boxes to the Cabinets & Closets Conference and Expo April 11-13 at the Schaumburg Renaissance Convention Center near Chicago.  
 
The Lockdowel assembled cabinets - they use plastic fasteners and no glue or wood doweling - are specified online using an Allmoxy software-driven, online ordering system, that feeds specifications directly to the shop machinery. 
 
“Bella IMC is a new way of thinking about buying cabinets,” says Chad Shelton, Bella IMC president says. “Using the Lockdowel assembly method allows customers to assemble cabinets 80 percent faster than traditional read-to-assemble cabinets—without glue, or screws.” 
 
The Chadwick is also using Cabinet Vision, which can import the files extracted from specifications of the cabinets, doors, and drawers made by customers ordering through Allmoxy. 
 
Bella IMC’s new line can be ordered online in customized sizes in a 1/16-inch increments, shipped assembled or flat-packed, RTA. Bella IMC sells wholesale to kitchen cabinet dealers, home improvement professionals, and cabinet/ closet shops looking to outsource. Clients can order the cabinet box only, individual door and drawer fronts, or a complete cabinet through the Allmoxy driven ordering page.
