Jim Vorst was just out of high school when he founded Vorst Custom Cabinets in 1998. And while the Findlay, OH-based company may have started small, it didn’t stay that way for long. Initially housed in a 3,000 square-foot building, the manufacturing area was what Vorst now calls “bare bones” with basic equipment. “Table saws and manual equipment got us started. Eight years later we installed our first CNC router,” he says. “During that time we added on to the original building three times for additional manufacturing space and twice to open and then expand our showroom.”
In 2011, Vorst Custom Cabinets moved to a new facility, complete with a 3,600 square-foot showroom and 17,000 square-foot shop space. “From the first we have been a custom operation with a wide range of services for our clients,” Vorst says "along with manufacturing and installing kitchen and bath cabinetry in the mid- to high-end range, the company also offers consultation and design services."
The company chose the Mito system from Cefla Finishing. “It fits in well with our needs and it provides flexibility, productivity and quality,” Vorst says. “We can spray in one-fourth the time what it would take us to do manually. A panel cleaner is incorporated with the machine and we use a paper conveyor belt with disposable paper rolls. The belts provide good edge coverage", he adds. “I have been amazed at how evenly it does on the coverage of edges."
