Requarth Co. Launches Timeless Cabinetry & Mouldings
Alan Pippenger, President of the Requarth Co., announced the launch two new custom product lines, Timeless Cabinetry and Timeless Mouldings.
Timeless Cabinetry are custom cabinets build locally by Requarth Co.
Timeless Cabinetry is a line of custom cabinets produced in Requarth’s historic downtown mill. The cabinets feature all wood construction, formaldehyde free plywood boxes, and solvent free finishes.
“We believe that the time is right to offer our customers an affordable custom cabinet that is built locally and embraces the highest green building standards,” said Pippenger.
According to company Vice President John Requarth, the focus on an environmentally friendly product fits well with other company initiatives. “We are the only area building products company to achieve both a Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Certification and status as a Certified Green Dealer. We pride ourselves not only our five generation history, but also on our commitment to future generations.”
Historically accurate mouldings
Timeless Moulding, the Requarth Co.’s new line of historically accurate moldings, offers four moulding collections, designed in collaboration with nationally recognized home builder, historic moulding and millwork expert, author and craftsman Brent Hull. The collections simplify the selection process for customers and ensure that each component, from base to casing to crown mouldings, fit the home’s design are properly proportioned. The collections are named in honor of influential Dayton architects: Harry Schenck, noted for designing the Wright Brother’s home at Hawthorn Hill; Albert Pretzinger, who designed the former Dayton Daily News Building for Gov. James Cox; Frank Mills Andrews, the architect for the Dayton Arcade; and Charles Insco Williams, noted for the Downtown Dayton YMCA Building. “Dayton is well known for our history of invention, creativity and innovation,” said Pippenger. “We decided that this would be a great way to honor Dayton’s rich architectural history.”
