We don't manufacture cabinets. We administer programs that consumers and cabinet manufacturers trust that will make the products more appealing to buy and sell.
The Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1955 to represent companies who manufacture cabinets, bath cabinets, or other residential cabinets and key kitchen and bath industry suppliers. With a membership now more than 300 strong throughout North America, KCMA works to advance the cabinet industry through advocacy, setting cabinet quality standards, sponsoring kitchen and bath cabinet-related research and providing the cabinet industry with management tools and educational programs.
KCMA establishes and promotes standards for the kitchen cabinet industry; defends and advocates in support of the cabinet industry; and arms our members with valuable tools necessary to promote and grow their cabinet businesses.
