"The cabinet industry has continued to see soft demand and a highly competitive landscape. While we expect those trends to persist for the balance of 2012, we are optimistic about a longer-term recovery in the new home construction and home improvement markets. As such, we will continue introducing new products and programs to be able to compete in this difficult market," commented President and CEO, Mark Buller.
