PLATO Woodwork is next up on our Brand Benefits blog series.
PLATO Woodwork has been around since 1893 and has a reputation as one of America’s finest custom cabinetry manufacturers. Owned by five generations of the Pinske family, the cabinets are still being designed, built and finished to each person’s specifications as well as PLATO’s exacting standards.
What is it that makes PLATO different?
One of the greatest benefits of PLATO is that it is entirely “Made in the USA” and not just assembled in America. The factory is located in Plato, Minnesota and is committed to the local workforce and the environment. Below are a few more benefits that make up the PLATO Difference.
Plato meets with lumber suppliers to select only the best material available – Each piece of wood is hand selected by PLATO.
Only wood from the same region will be used on each job – No mixing of cherry wood from the north with cherry wood from the south!
There is no imported substrate in any of their plywood – Go USA!
1 ¼” face frames give you greater access to the cabinet
Standard 13” deep wall cabinets (the industry standard is 12” deep)
