Cabinet Distributor Opens in Houston R A L E I G H , N C — Kitchen Cabinet Distributors will open its first distribu- tion center outside of its Raleigh, NC headquarters this month in the city of Houston, TX. The 11-year-old cabinet company's new 180,000-sq.-ft. dis- tribution center is located in the city's Greenspoint neighborhood, just north of downtown. "Growing demand for affordable, quality cabinetry and a steady hous- ing market continues to drive our growth, and our new Houston facility will allow us to better serve the state of Texas and other nearby markets," said Megan Mazu, v.p. of sales and market- ing. "At this new facility, our inventory and customer service will allow cus- tomers to receive cabinets in days, not weeks, for both renovation projects and new construction." The distribution facility will feature a showroom for contrac- tors, home improvement dealers and cabinet shops. The facility will be integrated with the company's recently launched online dealer ordering system, which provides full transparency to inventory levels and product specifications allowing customers to submit or- ders anytime and anywhere. Kitchen Cabinet Distribu- tors will be filling more than 50 Houston-based positions in 2019, including customer service representatives and warehouse personnel.
