Over the years, contractors John Moore and John Bostian felt the need for cabinets built more quickly than what they could get.
The pair worked together at Brushy Mountain Builders, a contracting business Moore owns in Lenoir, and often had to delay jobs to wait for cabinets to be built.
“What we were having trouble with was getting cabinets in a timely manner,” Moore said. “And that’s what was really hurting us with our jobs, was waiting on cabinets to come in.”
In 2015, they started Caldwell Cabinets of N.C. and opened a $500,000 facility in Sawmills to build custom cabinetry, branded as Caseworx, with advanced machinery that cuts built time by weeks.
