Located in the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah, Crown Cabinets is surrounded by some of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in the United States. Because we live near and enjoy these national treasures we realize the need to preserve our environment for the world and for future generations. In addition to our clearwood offerings we also offer complimenting knotty woods, including Knotty Alder, Knotty Cherry, Knotty Hickory, Knotty Maple, Knotty Oak and Knotty Walnut. Where many manufacturers are chopping out the knots and sending them to the landfill, we turn them into some of the most beautiful, rustic kitchen cabinetry in the world with one of the richest selections of rustic door styles in the industry. The highest volume wood type through our factory, Knotty Alder, is a very renewable resource, and has one of the highest yields in the industry. Our end paneling also comes in clear or knotty, the knotty paneling generally being waste to most manufacturers. We donate our sawdust by-product to several local horse farms. All of our incoming raw material packaging is recycled. We work with our suppliers to ensure that our raw materials come from renewable resources where possible. We will continue to improve our environmental stewardship to ensure that future generations are able to enjoy this beautiful country as we do now!

RECYCLING

We recycle all our inbound cardboard and paper through our local recycling facitilites

UTILIZATION OF KNOTTY WOODS
Not only do we utilize clear, select hardwoods, but we also utilize rustic, knotty woods as well. This practice uses more of the raw material producing higher yields and lowers our waste and landfill contributions. In the process we offer one of the largest selections of rustic knotty wood door styles in the industry and create some of the most beautiful rustic mountain cabinetry in the west! Usage of the knotty wood and rustic wood has increased our yeilds by 40 - 50%.

EMPLOYEE SAFETY TRAINING

When a piece of wood goes through the factory, it will be machined many times, handled by our employees many times and ultimately end up as an integral part of one of our quality cabinets. Each piece matters as we pride ourselves in our quality and craftsmanship. We take great pride in the fact that we emphasize employee safety along the way. We have an excellent safety record and value each and every one of our skilled craftsmen. Attention to detail and safety throughout the manufacturing process is essential. The result is a very low work in process reject rate, higher yields, happy safe employees, and quality cabinetry.
