The business began with the founder Tom Sterl, upon his return from World War II. Originally a tool-and-die maker by profession, he was an innovator in building frameless cabinetry designed by his wife Ann. They were truly pioneers in this industry. He made cabinets for his wife, and then for all their friends and relatives. Later, due to economies of scale, they found selling factory manufactured cabinets more cost-effective. In the recession of the 1960s, he began making vanities and countertops to carry them through.
Today, Ann oversees the business, which is run by their adult children Linda and Tom Sr., and their grandchildren, Lorraine, Teresa, Tom Jr. and Anthony. Today, architects, contractors, property apartment managers, tradesmen and homeowners receive only the best blend of expertise and quality, with quality name brands and affordable cabinetry.
