“This type of cabinetry, also known as frameless, is popular in many parts of the country and we simply haven't been able to adequately serve those areas," said Scott Korsten, the company's director of marketing.

The newly announced project will consist of a 60,000-square-foot stand-alone manufacturing plant outfitted with new state-of-the-art equipment. The company expects to begin work soon on the pre-cast concrete building which will be positioned along the south end of the Showplace Wood Products campus, near its existing Harrisburg plant.
In the 15 years since employee-owned Showplace Wood Products first began building and distributing cabinets on a national scale, the company has built nearly 2 million cabinets which have been shipped throughout the United States. This is the company’s sixth major expansion.
“Our new plant will allow us to build a different type of cabinet which we refer to as full-access,” said Scott Korsten, the company’s director of marketing. “This type of cabinetry, also known as frameless, is popular in many parts of the country and we simply haven’t been able to adequately serve those areas,” he adds.
The new project is reminiscent of the early days at Showplace, when the company’s original construction project provided a significant economic boost to the area and provided new employment opportunities with the start-up company.
“Our team of employee-owners have been deeply involved in getting us to this stage and you can feel the excitement building internally,” said Paul Sova, president and chief operating officer at Showplace. “Creating entirely new product lines and building a brand new manufacturing facility doesn’t happen very often; our staff recognizes the opportunities for personal growth and advancement that will come with it.”
The new plant is expected to be completed this fall, with construction of cabinets set to begin in December.
