Kemper Distinctive Cabinetry was founded on February 9, 1926 in Richmond, Indiana, a small Midwestern town with a rich heritage of manufacturing. The company initially made wardrobes and chifforobes, but in 1928 the first free-standing kitchen cabinets (known today as “Hoosier cabinets” because of their Indiana origins) were put into production. After World War II the single-family home building boom started; portable kitchen cabinets lost their popularity and in January of 1956 Kemper Bros. was one of the first companies to act on the desire for built-in wood cabinets. Today, Kemper continues to stay at the pulse of industry trends, bringing innovative solutions for the modern homeowner.
Offering distinctive cabinetry at a minimum impact, we keep our process simple, fine-tuning our operations and products to be as efficient as possible. As a certified member of the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association's (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program, Kemper demonstrates an ongoing commitment to sustainability. This includes the use of environmentally responsible materials in cabinet products and reduced environmental impact realized through recycling wastes and using low emission coatings. By achieving this certification, Kemper goes beyond minimum industry requirements and demonstrates leadership in a growing area of concern and importance.
Since 1926, Kemper cabinets have helped to create rooms that are as beautiful as they are functional. From the design of the doors and drawers fronts – to the choice of materials, finishes, hardware, and storage – Kemper provides years of performance and pleasure.
