Cabinetworks Group Expands Mount Union, Pennsylvania, Manufacturing Center

Cabinetworks Group, a national kitchen cabinet manufacturing company, will expand operations in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. The $23 million project is expected to create 327 jobs in the next three years.

The company will invest in its existing Mount Union kitchen cabinet component manufacturing facility, converting it to a complete cabinet manufacturing and assembly operation. In 2016, Cabinetworks invested $10.7 million dollars to purchase the 200,000-square-foot facility at 11823 Lenape Drive.

“We thank Governor Wolf and his staff for their continued support,” said John Barkhouse, CEO of Cabinetworks. “We are extremely proud to expand our operations in central Pennsylvania, bringing advanced manufacturing to the region, creating new jobs in Huntingdon County, and contributing to the state’s economy.”

As an incentive, the company received a funding proposal from DCED for a $981,000 Pennsylvania First grant and a $630,000 workforce development grant to train its new workers.

“This is the second Cabinetworks Group project we’ve invested in under Governor Wolf,” noted Neil Weaver, Acting Secretary of the Department of Community and Economic Development . “We’re pleased to support this newest expansion as the company continues to grow in central Pennsylvania.”

Cabinetworks Group is the largest independently-owned manufacturer and distributor of kitchen and bath cabinetry in the United States, producing both framed and frameless cabinetry in 19 facilities for dealers, home centers, distributors and multifamily home builders. The company is home to 17 cabinet brands including iconic brands such as KraftMaid, Medallion, and Merillat.

“This is a great example of how public and private sectors can work together to grow manufacturing in Huntingdon County,” added Debra Clark-Loner, Executive Director, Huntingdon County Business & Industry. “We are very pleased that Cabinetworks Group found a home with us, and are grateful for their commitment to the community.”
