RSI Increases Cabinet Capacity with Plant Expansion

MIRA LOMA, CA—RSI Professional Cabinet Solutions (RSI PCS) today announced the completion of the company’s most recent plant expansion at its Mira Loma facility. The 50,000 square feet expansion and plant redesign will enable the company to more than double the output of its European-inspired, frameless cabinetry.

“This expansion is driven by rapidly increasing demand from our customers to supply frameless cabinetry in new home developments and remodeling projects,” said Eric VanDerHeyden, president, builder sales and services, RSI Professional Cabinet Solutions. “The cabinet industry, particularly in the west, is in need of additional capacity and this investment ensures we can continue to improve our execution, streamline production and supply high quality frameless cabinets at attainable price points.”

To improve and maintain higher production levels, RSI PCS implemented Just-in-Time processing and the Kanban replenishment system to streamline material flow and eliminate handling waste. Higher capacity and quality equipment was added throughout the plant to support component production and assembly lines were re-engineered to be faster and more flexible.

“Our skilled and dedicated employees executed a tremendous transformation in a short timeframe,” said Don Cox, senior vice president, operations, RSI Professional Cabinet Solutions. “This implementation allows us to produce a higher quality product in a safer working environment with increased efficiency levels. The concepts and details can be replicated at new facilities in new markets to support our national growth strategy.”

The RSI PCS frameless European-inspired cabinetry provides numerous advantages over traditional, framed cabinetry. The frameless cabinets offer functional advantages, such as larger and deeper drawers, wider openings for more storage, easier cleaning, faster access and retrieval, and high quality hardware. Full overlay doors provide a clean, streamlined look with premium crown, light rail moldings, and knobs or pulls accentuating and completing the design.
