ARLINGTON, Texas – Techline Furniture, Cabinetry & Closets will host an open house exclusively for attendees of the Cabinets & Closets Conference and Wood Pro Conference at its showroom on Wednesday, March 11.
Techline’s 2,400-square-foot facility in Fort Worth features 14 vignettes to explore, including four closets, a pantry, a garage, wall beds and a home office. The business, owned and operated by Jerry and Carol Courter, designs, sells and installs products for residential and commercial customers, including medical and dental offices.
When Carol Courter opened the Techline Studio in 1991, it was the first non-architectural firm in the country to be able to distribute products using the Techline name. Jerry Courter, who previously served as the first-ever factory-direct sales representative of Techline USA, became co-owner in 1993. The business was soon after renamed Techline Furniture & Cabinetry.
Closets and organization products became a bigger part of the Courters’ business after they attended the first Closets Conference & Expo in Arlington in 2005. The couple’s interest gravitated to the closet and home storage display of Stow Company. They signed up to join Stow’s national dealer network and continue to be authorized ORG dealers. In 2011, the company’s name was expanded to Techline Furniture, Cabinetry and Closets.
The Courters built their retail store in 2004. Jerry Courter said the last major overhaul of the showroom occurred in 2016 but that individual displays are constantly being changed or tweaked. “Our showroom is a living, breathing entity that changes with changing consumer tastes. We strive to offer lots of the latest and greatest finishes, accessories and more,” he said.
Techline is a member of several organizations including the Association of Closet and Storage Professionals.
In addition to hosting the showroom tour, Jerry Courter will participate in a panel discussion, "Design Tips & Trends," during the Cabinets & Closets Conference.
The conference tour package also includes a bus stop at First Source Cabinet Doors manufacturing plant.
