Nowadays, kitchens tend to function more as a gathering place for families, often acting as extensions of family and entertainment rooms. And as the popularity of kitchens has grown, their décor has become more elaborate ... particularly the cabinets. For 65 years, Wasatch Cabinet & Furniture Company of West Jordan has kept up to date with changes in the cabinet industry, using the latest technology to beautify kitchens and other rooms with rows of polished wood cabinets.
Paris Wimmer originally started the cabinetry company and then sold it in 1969 to Jerome Tullis who was tired of working outdoors as a general contractor. Before retiring, Paris stayed for two more years to train Jerome and his sons in the art of cabinet making. A year later, Wasatch Cabinet moved to their current West Jordan location and Jerome retired. Now, the sons, Ralph, John and Howard Tullis, manage the business.
Howard tells me Wasatch Cabinet makes all types of cabinets for both homes and offices. The company can adorn any room with cabinets of all types of wood, including oak, maple, walnut, and even mahogany if requested. Customers can order standard cabinets or customized cabinets with carvings, etchings or other desired features. Wasatch Cabinet also makes matching moldings and seamless counter tops made entirely of a hard acrylic composite. Howard says they ship their commercial cabinets all over the nation and fill orders for residential cabinets in multiple states, including California, Nevada and Wyoming. The company also is a member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association.
What sets Wasatch Cabinet apart from many other cabinetmakers is its method of construction and attention to details. Instead of using unsightly staples to form cabinets, Wasatch Cabinet uses unseen wooden dowels. The company also makes its owns cabinet doors, a procedure not done by many other manufacturers. Each year, Wasatch Cabinet produces approximately $2.5 million worth of cabinets. Now, that's a lot of cabinets.
