ELMHURST, IL -  Plus Closets, a full service design and manufacturing company specializing in selling one closet at a time, says it has been expanding its manufacturing capabilities to handle increased demand for closet, pantry and garage organizational systems.

Plus Closets President, Frank Happ, says the purchase of new, state-of-the-art computerized woodworking machinery, including a new Felder edgebander and CNC machinery, will allow them to meet demand while reducing manufacturing costs, creating shorter lead times and improving overall product quality.

“Homeowners and dealers alike are looking for quality and value. Our goal at Plus Closets is to provide clean and beautiful spaces for the home," says Happ. "We do this by meeting the needs of in-home sales businesses, or professionals, that don't want to incur the overhead cost associated with manufacturing custom closets. We give our dealers a manufactured product that exceeds industry expectations on quality, accuracy and timeliness.”

Plus Closets has over 60,000 square feet of manufacturing space at its Elmhurst, IL plant. 

"We have invested about $1 million dollars into new shop equipment," Happ says. "This equipment has helped improve the finished quality of our products, along with tightening up our lead times."

Plus Closets says it now packs all orders on a per-room basis. Each cardboard bundle has a number that corresponds with the each room on the production drawings. The drawings are sent with each order in the accompanying hardware box.

Plus Closets, which also recently appointed Vince Alfano head of Sales and Business Development for the Plus Closets Team, says it will exhibit with Felder at the 2014 Cabinets & Closets Expo in Somerset, NJ, April 9-11.
