    Can we save the American Cabinet Industry? We talk with the KCMA about it

    Can we save the American Cabinet Industry? We talk with the KCMA about it

    We sit down with Betsy Natz, CEO of the Kitchen CabinetManufacturers Association. We dive into how they test and rate cabinets so that they will hold up and meet their industry standards for durability. We dive into the KCMA helping protect the American Cabinet Manufacturers from dumping of low priced imports. We talk about the trade wars in residential kitchen and bathroom cabinetry that have been going on behind the scenes and how they are trying to protect the American Worker. This is somewhat of an unusual deep dive for Around the House but to really understand what is going on here we need to get to that level of detail so there is a greater understanding as it is not a simple issue.
