HOUSTON - Following successful multi-unit cabinetry projects in Florida, cabinetry and architectural woodwork firm Italkraft Mid Altantic Llc is opening a Houston office to supply two projects under construction there. The operation is expected to open in the fall.
Raul J. Gutierrez and Alex Xakoustis founded Italkraft, based in Doral, FL, in 2011, providing design and installation for European-style cabinets manufactured for it in Italy. The 150-employee cabinet and architectural millwork company had sales of $20 million last year; Gutierrez told the South Florida Business Journal he expects sales of $28 million this year for turnkey cabinetry projects Italkraft is doing for condo and apartment builders - its largest clientele - and single-unit clients.
Shipping the Italian manufactured cabinetry and vanities flat packed, Italkraft sends in crews of 8 to 10 installers to work on projects.
