RSI Home Products and Professional Cabinet announce alliance
Alignment allows companies to create competitive cost-advantages across cabinet industry.
RSI Home Products, Inc., a manufacturer of kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, medicine cabinets and cultured marble countertop products in the U.S. and Canada, and Professional Cabinet Solutions (PCS), a supplier of semi-custom made-to-order, full access, frameless cabinetry throughout the Western U.S, announced today that the companies will form a strategic alliance.
“The alliance between RSI Home Products and Professional Cabinet Solutions offers tremendous advantages, including the ability to leverage resources, share management disciplines, cross-sell and maximize manufacturing capabilities,” said Alex Calabrese, president and CEO of RSI Holding LLC, parent company of RSI Home Products, Inc., RSI Development and PCS. “This will be beneficial for the customers we serve from the nation’s top retail centers, home builders, kitchen and bath dealers and ultimately the end-user. By working collaboratively, we will expand our product lines to further exemplify RSI’s commitment to producing high-quality, value-rich, low-cost products.”
As a result of the alliance, RSI Home Products, a supplier of in-stock kitchen and bath cabinets to retailers such as Home Depot and Lowes, will have the opportunity to cross-sell its products to PCS’ network of home builders and kitchen and bath dealers. PCS will benefit from access to RSI Home Products’ manufacturing and management resources.
Additionally, PCS will look to further expand within the made-to-order segment of the market with its current products, as well as products made by RSI Home Products, where an estimated $5 billion in sales exist through builders, retail home centers and kitchen and bath dealers.
“Similar to the competitive pricing platform RSI Home Products created for the in-stock and value segment of the cabinet market, the alignment will bring a value proposition to the semi-custom made-to-order market that has never been seen before,” Calabrese said.
