Who are the largest cabinet manufacturers in North America? The biggest producers of furniture? The millwork and store fixture companies with the largest sales?
This information is part of the FDMC 300, an annual report that FDMC and Woodworking Network produce each year. The top 10 lists here are based on 2015 data, the most recent completed year we’ve researched.
The FDMC 300 is a group of the 300 largest cabinet, furniture, millwork, store fixture, office/contract and component producers in North America.
As we reported earlier this year, sales for the FDMC 300 group of companies grew 7 percent in 2015 to $46.404 billion, by our estimate. For this important group of 300 companies it was the fourth consecutive year of sales growth, and it came after five years of declines from 2007 to 2011.
Once again, cabinet companies of different sizes did especially well in 2015. Many of the larger, publicly traded companies and privately held firms we were able to document had a positive year.
We won’t have final figures for 2016 for several months, but indications that we’re seeing point to another year of sales growth.
Wood products companies in our industry have continued to become more efficient by using technology and new management techniques. They have done more with fewer people, and with fewer resources.
You don’t hear “we’ve always done it that way” from people who are always on the lookout for a better way. These companies are leaders both in their market and in the overall wood products industry.
