Cabico&co, a Quebec-based high-end custom cabinetry manufacturer, has unveiled its ultramodern facilities, new equipment, and upgrades at its Coaticook manufacturing plant.
The nearly 25-million-dollar upgrade, which includes a major digital and technological transformation, merged with artisanal craftsmanship, positions this leading player to increase production and growth throughout North America.
Cabico&co’s plant optimization strategy meshes automation and robotization technology, connected manufacturing, and the know-how and artisanal approaches of specialists and craftsmen who bring the human touch to the most complex projects. The design and manufacturing of custom cabinets require seamless communication between people, machines, and systems.
"Our multi-year vision to ease customer experiences in designing and manufacturing personalized projects is now a reality,” says Alain Ouzilleau, Cabico&co’s president.
“Robots and systems free up our talented craftsmen's time. This helps to increase production capacity and to produce projects of unparalleled quality.”
Achieving this balance was a significant implementation challenge for the technology teams at Cabico&co and its Quebec partners Dunin Technologies, Nubik (Deloitte), Createch (Talan), PSTOX, and Automatech, which managed to converge, integrate, and synergize a range of software and technologies.

A vision of the future
Cabico&co’s 200,000 sq. ft. renovation includes a new 50,000 sq. ft. plant and open-concept state-of-the-art administrative offices that inspire collaboration. These upgrades, coupled with the recent optimization of its operations, are expected to raise standards throughout the industry and propel its growth to new heights.
In response to Cabico’s announcement, Pete Fournier, president, Canadian Kitchen Cabinet Association (CKCA) said:
“On behalf of the CKCA, we are so proud that our member, Cabico&co has continued to invest in technologies that allows them to meet the growing demand for Canadian-built cabinetry. It’s these kinds of innovations that drives the industry forward and sets a path that inspires us all and shows us what is possible. We wish Alain and his entire team at Cabico&co the very best in this exciting next chapter.”
“Our vision is to go the extra mile. We want to attract the best talent, customers, and partners. Our facilities' digital and technological transformation is a force for positive change. It enables us to offer customers operational excellence to meet their expectations and ideas while providing a motivating work environment for our employees. I am very proud of my people, without whom the migration to the new updated plant and processes would not have been possible,” says Ouzilleau.
One of North America’s leading manufacturers of custom cabinetry, Cabico&co is a privately-owned company with a team of 650 specialists and craftsmen and over 400,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing facilities based in Coaticook, Quebec, and St. Catharines, Ontario.
