About Kitchen Kompact
The Gahms. A family with a single vision. Manufacturing the best kitchen cabinets at the most affordable prices. Across three generations, bringing innovation and hard work to a fast-growing, constantly changing industry. Transforming a small custom cabinet shop, whose beginnings date back to 1937, into one of the largest cabinet assembly plants in the United States.
Service. Stability. Confidence. These are the elements that make the KK philosophy work. Manufacture a quality product, do it consistently, and do it for the lowest possible price. Then everybody wins: customers, employees and owners. That’s the philosophy that’s seen us grow from the first day Dwight Gahm became involved back in 1955. It’s the philosophy that helped us do what others thought was impossible–stabilize pricing for almost a decade without a single increase. It’s the philosophy that’s been passed down from our founder, Dwight Gahm, to his three sons, and now to a third generation. It’s a part of our success, because it’s a part of our family.
There’s solid wood durability built into every KK cabinet. From the hardwood doors and stiles to the solid wood elements, each cabinet is built to last. Note these quality features: All frames are built of solid 3/4″ hardwoods. Each rail is kiln-dried, joined by mortise and tenon, and then glued for added strength. Solid wood toe kicks, 3/4″ thick. Solid wood hanging strips on wall and base cabinets, located at the top and bottom. End panels consist of 3-ply construction, 1/2″ thick engineered wood core with hardwood veneers. All painted and stained cabinets are protected with a durable topcoat. The result is a surface that is virtually “family-proof,” resisting many household chemicals, water, alcoholic beverages, mild acids, and even nail polish. The result is more than just a kitchen you can cook in—it’s a kitchen you can live in at a price you can live with.
And there’s more. All Kitchen Kompact cabinets feature plywood drawers as a standard. A front-to-back epoxy-coated drawer system is securely attached to a solid wood strip in the back of the cabinet for stability, and years of smooth operation. We also offer universal design cabinets.
