HARRISBURG, S.D. – Showplace Cabinetry has completed a 16,800-sq-ft construction project linking the company’s two manufacturing plants in Harrisburg, South Dakota.
The $2.5 million expansion project provides a central shipping point for Showplace framed cabinetry and the frameless ShowplaceEVO line, as well as enhanced warehousing and transportation efficiencies companywide.
“Demand is up for all our cabinetry lines,” said Bill Allen, president and CEO of Showplace Cabinetry. “That demand required us to find an innovative solution to improved logistics and enhanced ShowplaceEVO production. The new warehouse and shipping link solves both challenges.”
With the expanded warehouse, completed ShowplaceEVO orders flow straight off the manufacturing production line into the central warehouse area and move directly to shipping, reducing the handling of completed cabinetry and maximizing efficiency, the company says. The space gained in the EVO plant by moving finished cabinet storage to the new connecting warehouse and shipping facility will increase EVO production capacity.
“By freeing up space in the ShowplaceEVO production plant, we have increased production capacity by 30%,” said Allen. “By January 2022, we will be able to manufacture up to 250 ShowplaceEVO cabinets a day.”
The $2.5 million project also streamlines logistics and handling, increasing shipping capacity for the company by 30% and creating a more efficient order flow from production to transportation.
