American Craftsmanship

Posted on in Posted in New Products, News, Press Release

Hayward chooses its business partners carefully. More than just partnering with recognizable brands, we do business with suppliers who continually invest in their product categories and are committed to meeting the needs of our customers. That’s why we partner with companies like StarMark Cabinetry, handcrafted right here in the USA. At StarMark Cabinetry, a cabinet isn’t punched out of wood and then stored on a warehouse shelf until you order it. Each cabinet is hand made, one at a time, to your exact specifications. Handcrafted custom cabinetry and attention to detail is what sets this company apart, check out the craftsmanship that goes into making each cabinet:

  • We assemble doors by hand. It’s the best way to ensure that mitered doors have tight joints and that the decorative trim on an applied moulding door is aligned smartly.
  • We sand doors by hand. Hand sanding is the only way to correctly prepare a door to receive the color you requested.
  • We glaze cabinetry by hand. First, we stain the wood, then we apply the glaze by hand, and then wipe it off by hand. When our craftsman wipes off the glaze, he or she can best use the glaze to define the details in your kitchen.
  • We distress cabinetry by hand. Balancing knife marks, worm holes, rasping and other characteristics throughout an entire room of cabinetry requires thoughtful, artistic judgment. We haven’t met a machine yet that has that ability.
  • Every component that goes into your cabinet is handled by a human. Each employee can reject a component if it’s not good enough.

StarMark Cabinetry is environmentally responsible. StarMark is a certified brand in the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program. The program recognizes companies that demonstrate an ongoing commitment to sustainability including the use of environmentally responsible materials in cabinet products and minimize environmental impacts realized through recycling wastes and using low emission coatings. By achieving this certification, StarMark Cabinetry is going beyond minimum requirements and demonstrates leadership in growing a sustainable company. Learn more, visit StarMark Cabinetry.
