The company will become a subsidiary of Rev-A-Shelf and service an expanded customer base. Rev-A-Shelf said it will retain all current staff and management going forward.

“We are very excited about the acquisition of such a well-respected company with a culture of quality that matches our own," said David Noe, GM/ VP of Rev-A-Shelf, "Top Drawer will allow us to grow into a closely related market with wood drawer box and accessories both regionally and nationally. We wanted the capability to produce 'Made in America' wood accessories that will grow Top Drawers’ current model and supplement the needs of our core Rev-A-Shelf customers as well. It is the perfect platform to establish our domestic wood product production."

I know that Top Drawer has the potential to really expand with the resources that Rev-A-Shelf will add. I look forward to working with them and expanding on a solid foundation we have established. Our existing customers will see expanded capabilities, and through strategic investment, we will be able to grow our footprint and enter new markets. This is a very positive step forward for Top Drawer.”
