Our Mission Statement

Forever Cabinets By Kendrick is a growing manufacturer of quality custom cabinetry. We operate in a team environment to produce cabinets for customers in the Midwest. We use lumber from sustainably harvested timbers, milled at our Kendrick Forest Products sawmill and drying facility. We generate sales and profits through the direct marketing of custom cabinetry, and by selling a diverse mix of other building products.

Employees are our most valuable assets. We build a total team environment that will allow the company, the employees, and the owners to prosper. We believe that if we put our employees first, they will put our customers first.  To ensure the quality of our products we control the process from the timber to the customer. We strive to “continually improve our process” through the adoption of affordable technology. We hold ourselves environmentally responsible and strive to practice our profession in an environmentally safe manner. We strive to “be the best” producer of custom cabinetry. Back to top ↵
