Cabinet Builder Exclusively Selects Markraft

June 1st, 2013 | Posted in Design Trends

North Carolina-based cabinetmaker, UltraCraft Cabinets, takes pride in its products. The company based in Liberty, NC has been designing and crafting cabinets since 1986. It employs over 250 people including skilled craftsmen and engineers. They do not distribute their cabinets in big box stores.

“We only sell through professional kitchen dealers with top notch design staff,” said Jim Leek, vice president of sales and marketing for UltraCraft Cabinets.

That’s why they have chosen to distribute through Markraft Cabinets located at 5424 Oleander Drive in Wilmington, NC.

“We are picky about who we partner with and we are proud to be associated with Markraft. They are a top-notch reputable company. They design ‘dream spaces’ that look like magazine pictures. They don’t just sell you boxes to hang on the wall,” Leek said.

UltraCraft Cabinets offers over 75 different door styles in a variety of materials including wood, thermofoil, metal, melamine, acrilux and Eurotek veneer. In combination with door styles and finishes, it offers over 10,000 selections.

But it keeps an eye on kitchen design trends. Lately, white and light colored painted cabinets have been in high demand while dark colors such as cocoa and chocolate remain popular, he said.

Stained wood in shades of brown and grey sell more than reddish tones.

“Glazing is going away slowly. Customers are excited about the brushed linen to replace glaze. It’s softer and not so dated,” he said.

In 2013 and 2014, Leek forecasts an increase demand for slab door construction with clean, simple lines that offer a transitional and modern look.

UltraCraft Cabinets builds its products in a 213,000 square-foot manufacturing warehouse.

It offers customers a 100-year limited warranty. Its cabinets aim to offer more storage, flush construction and surfaces that are easier to clean.

“We are excellent business partners with a long history of serving the Markraft market,” he said.

Markraft Cabinets specializes in cabinet and countertop design and installation in both new residential and commercial construction as well as custom remodeling projects. For more information, visit or call (910) 793-2002.
