Elkins, WV – The Corsi Group upgraded its finishing systems, and added an edgebander, spending less than $2 million in the process. But those measured investments are delivering a dramatic return.

The Corsi team in Elkins, WV received training on its new finishing system.

Without adding any space to its 50,000-sq.-ft. Elkins, WV production facility last month, the technology upgrade delivered nearly a 60% increase in capacity. A new Cefla Mito 2P automated finishing system is included in the improvements.

The Mito system at Corsi is comprised of a two-arm, oscillating spray machine, an automated Machinenbau Roba Tech brush sander, an anti-dust panel cleaner, and new finish pumps and air-mix guns, and an electronic mixing and dosing system.

Additionally, the location has a new Biesse Akron 1440-A single-sided edgebander with touch screen control, which came online in February.

 “With this $1.4 million-dollar improvement on the shop floor, our Elkins facility will be able to increase capacity by 58% to meet increased demand for our Greenfield and Siteline cabinet brands,” says Terry Dye, VP Operations for the company. “No employees have been displaced with these automated solutions; in fact, we require additional production associates to support the increased line speed and volume.”

The Corsi-Elkins plant came online in November of 2000. Today, the staff at this facility make its popular Greenfield Cabinetry brand in modern overlay, inset and full-access, frameless construction types, as well as the Siteline Cabinetry brand, offered in full access only.

Founded 48 years ago, Corsi Group builds custom cabinetry under two brands, Greenfield Cabinetry and Siteline Cabinetry, which are distributed nationally to about 500 dealer/designers. All Corsi Group products are CARB-compliant and meet or exceed national standards for safety and durability. An active member of both the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers’ Association and the National Kitchen and Bath Association, Corsi Group is also an education partner of the Living in Place Institute.
