Family cabinetry business in Vaughan moves, expands and undergoes a $1-million reno

A second-generation family kitchen installation business has consolidated and expanded in a million-dollar move to Steeles and 400 in Vaughan.

QTK Fine Cabinetry also rebranded with the help of Blackjet Inc. it was formerly known as Quality Tops and Kitchens as it made the move from two buildings, 11,000 square feet and 20,000 square feet, into the single 45,000 square foot location in June.

"We've always been looking for a new building for operational efficiencies," says general manager Daniel Toto, son of Tony and Mary Toto, who founded the company in 1974, "and with the recession, the American company that owned the building was shutting up shop in Canada."

The Totos bought the building in August, 2009 and spent the first five months setting up the factory portion of the operation and the next seven months designing and building the offices, under the direction of architect Michael Amantea.

The only thing left is the showroom, with space for 11 kitchens, of which two, both fully functional, have already been installed.

Toto figures the whole thing will be finished by next summer.
