NEWMANSTOWN, Pa. - Pennsylvania cabinet maker Kountry Kraft has expanded its operations with the installation of a new point-to-point CNC router and a case clamp.
 
Kountry Kraft says the new Homag CNC will allow it to produce bigger panels and easily allow it to edit drawing data. The CNC will help the company absorb the higher demand it's currently seeing by improving production speed and helping maintain the shop's current eight-week production lead time.
 
"We are always seeking ways to be more nimble without compromising quality," states Elvin Hurst Jr., son of company founder Elvin Sr. Hurst Jr. owns the company with his sister Dee Hurst-Funk. 
 
The new Homag case clamp enables Kountry Kraft to produce taller cabinets than it could before. The company can now craft quality cabinetry ten feet in height, in framed or frameless construction.
 
Kountry Kraft runs a 96,000 square foot factory in Newmanstown, where it employs 100.
 
Founded in 1959, Kountry Kraft is a second-generation family-owned manufacturer of handcrafted custom cabinetry.
