Cabinetry Unlimited traces its history to 1968 when Messrs. Brown and Moore founded B&M Countertops, a fabricator of laminate counter tops in a 1,000 SF building on Route 17 in Selbyville, DE. In 1975 the company moved to a leased space on Park Street in Selbyville, DE.
The company was purchased by Joe “Doc” Dougherty and his wife Mary Ellen in 1978, and over the next quarter of a century they would build the company from $135,000 in Sales in 1978 to $7.2 million in Sales in 2004. During their tenure and stewardship, the company added sales of Cabinetry to the product offering (1980), purchased the Park Street property (1980), added two additions (’81 and ’83), opened locations in Ocean View (1984) and Salisbury (1986) and built the current main offices/ showroom/ warehouse complex on Hosier Street (1989). While both the Ocean View, DE and Salisbury, MD satellites were ultimately reconsolidated into the Hosier Street, Selbyville complex, the company continued to expand its service offering. The company added Cabinet Installation Services (1985), Kraftmaid Cabinetry (1990), and basic Institutional Casework Fabrication (1995) to the portfolio of services and products. In 2004, the Doughertys retired and sold the business to one of the employees, Dave Schafer, who guided the company to record revenues during the housing boom of the mid 2000s and who then sold it to current management in 2007.
Since 2007, and driven by the collapse of the housing market, the company has focused on steady growth by diversifying and optimizing its business even more. To that end, in 2008, Cabinetry Unlimited LLC added yet another, it’s third, building and dedicated it to the expansion and automation of Commercial Casework Fabrication. This expansion allowed the company to more vigorously engage in the commercial market. In addition, the company invested heavily in technology, buying automated machinery and conveyer systems in 2016 and implementing new Scheduling Software systems in 2018.
Today, Cabinetry Unlimited LLC primarily engages in three business segments: New Residential Construction, Residential Remodel, and Commercial Casework. Fifty years after its humble beginnings as a fabricator of laminate counter tops only, the company today offers the following of turnkey services to these three markets: kitchen design services, sales of name brand cabinetry such as Kraftmaid, Waypoint and Wolf, sales of granite and quartz products, in-house fabrication of Laminate & Solid Surface counters, commercial and custom casework, and installation of all of its products. The company now boasts over 30 full time employees and operates out of three facilities in Selbyville, DE, totaling nearly 40,000 square feet. Most importantly though, none of this would have been possible without the loyalty of our customers and the dedication of our employees, many of whom have been with the company for more than twenty years.
