KCMA, Virginia Members Honored for ESP Initiatives

Reston, VA — The Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association and several of its members have been recognized for their commitment to environmental preservation through the KCMA’s Environmental Stewardship Program.

At its annual meeting in June, the Reston, VA-based KCMA presented commendations from the Virginia General Assembly to several of ESP-certified members with manufacturing facilities in Virginia.

The association’s ESP emphasizes environmental preservation with the requirement of sustainably managed/harvested wood, low emission products, recycling and other requirements aimed at benefiting the environment.

Recognized for both a commitment to excellence in the field of cabinetry and to their dedication to environmental preservation were: American Woodmark Corp., Winchester, VA; Custom Wood Products, Roanoke, VA; Merillat Industries, Culpeper and Atkins, VA; MasterBrand Cabinets, Martinsville, VA; the Mid Continent Division of Norcraft Companies, Lynchburg, VA, and Yorktowne Cabinetry, Ringgold, VA.

To date, 44 cabinet companies or cabinet brands are ESP-certified, while 19 more have applied for certification, according to the KCMA.

The KCMA also was recognized by “Rebuilding Together,” the nation’s largest volunteer organization for preserving and revitalizing low-income communities.

The KCMA was commended for supporting Rebuilding Together’s goal of making a sustainable impact in partnership with the community by assuring the availability of affordable, durable, and environmentally preferable cabinetry for its projects.

“Interest in the ESP has exceeded all expectations,” said KCMA Executive Vice President Dick Titus. “The cabinet industry and its suppliers have a very positive story to tell.”
