J&K Cabinetry Phoenix, the region’s one-stop shop for everything remodeling, announces 2019 first-quarter expansion
There’s no business like a family business. That’s why Kong Lee, owner and President of J&K Cabinetry Phoenix, decided to join his family’s established cabinetry operation after completing six years of duty in the U.S. Army and returning from a deployment to Afghanistan. The Arizona branch of the business, founded in 2014 as a “one-stop shop for everything remodeling” is a manufacturer-direct wholesale distributor of affordable high-quality all-wood kitchen and bath cabinets and vanities. Its Phoenix showroom is brimming with kitchen and bathroom displays to give industry professionals plenty of ideas for their next remodeling project.
Always looking to serve its growing customer base, both a warehouse expansion and a new showroom are about to take the business to the next level of product and service. Inventory, Innovation and Sustainability
As President of J&K Cabinetry’s Arizona business, Lee manages and maintains what J&K is well known for—the integrity of high-quality materials and craftsmanship to deliver the absolute best products and services at the lowest cost.
Moreover, Lee places great emphasis on environmental health and safety, noting, “I always strive to provide a healthy environment for the safety of our employees and customers, while adhering to sustainable manufacturing practices for our society and its generations to come. I stand by my family’s commitment to manufacturing, distributing and selling high-quality environmental-friendly and healthy products.”
For example, J&K Cabinetry Phoenix’s hardwood-plywood materials are compliant with the “California 93120 Phase 2” (CARB 2) standard for formaldehyde, and they use AkzoNobel, a leading global company in sustainable paints and coatings, for all their cabinet finishes. J&K Cabinetry Phoenix’s entire cabinetry line is also certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA), assuring their customers of the highest product integrity.
Lee proudly extols the many virtues of his Phoenix operation, which currently maintains an impressive 75,000 sq. ft. of inventory. Lee says, “We provide the best in kitchen and bath cabinets, vanities and accessories to our professional network of dealers. They receive their orders in ‘ready-to-build’ flat packs in as little as one day, or professionally built in our facility to our KCMA-certified standards in as little as 10 business days. We do not sell direct to the public, and we have eliminated the middle person to reduce the lag and accuracy of communication and associated cost to ensure our J&K dealers the best in product, service and price.”
2019 1st Quarter Expansion
To meet the increased demand for J&K Cabinetry Phoenix’s new and existing products and to maintain the short lead times its customers enjoy, a 15,000-sq-ft expansion is underway, including 390,000 cubic feet of warehouse space.
Along with this expansion comes a new 2,000-sq-ft Professional Dealer Kitchen and Bath Design Center Showroom, scheduled to open in mid-March, which will have hours from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
According to Edward Mugits, head of marketing for J&K Cabinetry Phoenix, “Our new showroom will showcase a dozen or more of our high-quality furniture-grade cabinets, vanities and accessories, name-brand countertops from Silestone with their quartz and high-performance Dekton, and a variety of natural stone materials from Aracruz International Granite.”
Each display will also showcase the latest in tile backsplashes and flooring with porcelain, marble, wood and more.
Lee adds, “Dedicated to our dealer network, our new Design Center Showroom will allow our dealers to show their customers a full display of our door styles and finishes, and a variety of the most sought after options and designs.”
