Trusted because it's tested.
The Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association is the only industry-specific source establishing benchmarks that identify opportunities for your continued success. KCMA sponsors the nationally recognized voluntary testing and certification program for cabinets. In fact, recommends only purchasing cabinets certified with the KCMA A161.1 Quality Certification Seal.
Your customers care about the environment, this seal shows you do too.
KCMA created the Environmental Stewardship Program to help cabinet manufacturers and consumers ensure that cabinets are made in an environmentally-sound manner.
KCMA.org is the hub where all those who have an interest in the cabinet industry, cabinet quality and the true value of cabinetry come together – manufacturers, architects, suppliers and homeowners.
KCMA has endorsed APPI Energy as a collaborative partner to provide The Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association members, located in deregulated energy states, the opportunity to participate in APPI’s energy reduction program.
