HOUSTON - Kitchen Cabinet Distributors has expanded its footprint following the grand opening of a 180,000-square-foot showroom and distribution center in Houston, Texas.

The Houston facility was built in response to rising regional demand by contractors and builders for RTA and assembled cabinetry, said Randy Goldstein, CEO of the large Raleigh, North Carolina-based distributor.

"This is our first expansion beyond North Carolina — the first of what we expect will be several," Goldstein said.

Kitchen Cabinet Distributors carries about a dozen different product lines of traditional and modern-style frame wood cabinetry for use in kitchens, bath, home offices and closets remodeling and new construction projects. "We have everything in stock, so it's important for us to have distribution centers close to where our customers are," Goldstein said. "Being in Texas really opens up our offerings for the Texas market and allows us to better serve parts of the South, Southwest and West Coast."

Attended by more than two dozen contractors, distributors and media personnel, the March 6 event included a tour of the facility's assembly stations, dealer portal integration system and new showroom. "Cabinets can be ordered through our online dealer portal with optional assembly services. Additionally, the dealer portal allows customers to view availability, access product specifications, and manage account information," Goldstein explained.

In business since 2007, Kitchen Cabinet Distributors offers a range of products in a variety of colors and styles, some of which were on display at the recent KBIS in Las Vegas. The company can ship cabinetry flat or assembled, and has full finishing capabilities.

"Whites and grays continue to dominate kitchen and bath projects, but we also offer a variety of other colors and designs to suit varying tastes," Goldstein said.

"The mass market for high-quality cabinetry continues to grow and for those who are looking for a great value and unlimited design possibilities, our product offers an opportunity for remodeling and other projects that previously wasn't available," Goldstein added.
