Upcoming changes in 2019
We are very excited to update you on some upcoming changes that our Dealers can expect in 2019!
We know that there are many concerns over how the new taxes and tariffs on import will affect our industry as a whole. We want to assure you that there is nothing we sell that we cannot make in our factories in Tacoma. So unlike many of our competitors, you will NOT see significant price increases from us in the upcoming year.
In efforts to become as local as possible, we are very excited to announce the purchase of new equipment that will enable us to make all of our own boxes (still 100% plywood) here in our McKinley manufacturing facility.
This same equipment will eventually enable us to begin a line of frameless cabinets as well. While this new line is still a ways out, we will have much more information for you on the frameless cabinets in the upcoming months. Our goal is to have it up and running by the end of the 2019!
We are equally excited to announce that starting January 15th of 2019 we will have almost NO increase on our Craftsman Line, and only a 5% increase on the Select line. We will be offsetting the increase by making all Founder’s Choice Stains and Paints a flat upcharge of 10% (previously some were a 20% upcharge). The only exception to this increase will be Mocha and Raw, as they will have no upcharge. Custom color matching and catalog color pricing will remain the same.
We are looking forward to working with each of you in the upcoming year and value your business!
Please feel free to call Rhonda, Kristen or Cindy for any further explanation.
All the best,
Founder’s Choice Team
