QCCI® is nationally recognized for its high-end custom product lines: the classic all-wood Quality Custom Cabinetry® and the sleek Euro-design inspired Saxton Cabinetry® brands. Based in New Holland (Lancaster County) PA, QCCI employs 300 people who work in its 22,500 sq.ft. corporate headquarters and two state-of-the-art production facilities that total 205,500 sq.ft. Both brands are sold through a network of award-winning dealers across the U.S., and have been prominently featured in such prestigious publications such as Architectural Digest, Trends, Veranda and Traditional Home.
In 1968, a cabinetmaker named Martin H. Weaver started his own business in a 2,200 sq. ft. building in Brownstown (PA), with two employees and a modest goal of building one, very special kitchen a day. Weaver was all about quality and giving people an honest product that would be built with integrity and pride. Hence the straightforward name Quality Custom Kitchens.
By 1972 Quality hired its first full-time kitchen designer plus a salesperson to develop a small dealer network that initially built inroads into the Philadelphia and New Haven (CT) markets. Business flourished and in 1983 the company moved up the road to New Holland, into a 27,000 sq.ft. building that was equipped with the most advanced technologies for woodworking and finishing. Four years later there was another 20,000 sq.ft. expansion, and a formal, freestanding corporate headquarters was built in 1990.
By the time Quality celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1993, annual sales were close to $10 million, generated by 100 dealers and 135 employees. About this time Weaver stepped aside so his son-in-law Glenn L. Good, now President and CEO, and son Jerry Weaver, now Vice President, could take over the helm.
In 1995 the company’s name was changed to Quality Custom Cabinetry, Inc. – a reflection of the diversity of its solid wood product line. From a three-person shop, Quality had become one of the most sophisticated cabinetry manufacturers in the nation, renown for its exquisite solid wood cabinetry and accessories, timeless designs, and range of finishes that are always in tune with the latest design trends.
Sales continued at a steady pace, leading to more expansions in manufacturing (to 126,000 sq.ft.), enhanced product offerings, and a dealer network that now extends to the West Coast.
It was renewed interest in frameless construction that sparked Quality’s progression into Saxton Cabinetry®. After a rigorous two-year pilot program the new brand was formally launched in 2007 with construction of a 57,000 sq.ft. facility that is 100% dedicated to the latest frameless technology.
To separate its custom cabinetry brands and set up a business structure to better accommodate future growth, the firm’s corporate identity has been changed to QCCI®. The company’s business practices have earned the KCMA Environmental Stewardship Program Certification. In addition, QCCI is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and promotes its LEED programs. QCCI is also proud of the fact that for six consecutive years it has been named a “Best Place to Work in PA”, earning an 11th place ranking in companies with over 250 employees.
