Medallion Opens Plant in Oregon

Waconia, MN Medallion Cabinetry, Inc., the major manufacturer of semi-custom cabinetry based here, has opened a new manufacturing facility on the West Coast, the company announced.

Medallion's new 150,000-sq.-ft. factory, located in Independence, OR, officially opened in early October, and replaces the company's 70,000-sq.-ft. facility in Salem, OR, the company said.

The new plant will enable the cabinet manufacturer to "significantly increase production levels," added officials of the Elkay Mfg. Co.-owned Medallion.

"This expansion is in line with our goal of growing our business in the Western markets," said executive v.p. and general manager Tom Cook. "Through the Independence plant, we will be able to triple productivity and provide more cabinets to our customers in the West," Cook noted.

According to executive v.p./sales and marketing Larry Stokes, Medallion "is the only national semi-custom manufacturer to commit to the special needs of the Western market with a state-of-the-art facility.

"For years, Western consumers and dealers have had to buy from Eastern factories to receive a first-rate national cabinetry brand," Stokes observed. "With our new plant in Independence, Western consumers now have easy access to the highest-quality, built-to-order cabinetry."
