Washington County is home to the largest cabinet manufacturer that produces and finishes cabinets in the state of Maryland.   The family owned and operated company has been manufacturing all wood custom cabinetry since 1969.

One of the benefits for Hagerstown Kitchens, Inc. being located in Washington County is that they are within six hours of numerous major metropolitan areas – Philadelphia, New York , Cleveland, Richmond, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.   Vice President of Sales and Marketing, David Lobley points out other benefits besides the strategic location, “I feel it is important to remain in Washington County to show our support for the community that has supported us since 1969.  It has given us the opportunity to give back to the community by creating jobs and helping the local economy.”

Hagerstown Kitchens, Inc. has two company owned showrooms located in Hagerstown, Md. and Chambersburg, Pa.  They also have over 90 active dealers and builders spanning from Maine to the Carolinas and as far west as Illinois.

The company also takes pride in their commitment to the environment.  They are a founding member of the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program.  For eight-consecutive years Hagerstown Kitchens has met all five Environmental Stewardship Program requirements which allow their products to contribute to LEED points.
