I’m Pete VanHartingsveldt, I want to tell you a bit about the family business my parents Phil and Rita, and I have developed over the past 40 years. My parents started Durham Precision in 1971 with a table saw, a radial arm saw, and Dad’s personal hand tools building kitchen cabinets for local residents who helped him grow the business with word-of-mouth advertising. Durham Precision soon began to grow to meet demand and he began hiring people from the local community and training them to the exacting precision and old-world standards he’d learned in his native Holland.
I started learning those standards at a very early age and dreamed of carrying on my father’s traditions of craftsmanship. The company gradually grew from 3,000 to 8,000 square feet as my father invested in the kind of modern equipment that was being used in European shops. I grew up with the company, gradually taking on more and more responsibility until my parents retired in the late 1990’s. Today, Durham Precision has engaged the 3rd generation of family as we continue to grow and serve the community around us.
Today, with a staff of more than 12, we remain committed to quality craftsmanship. We continue to build our cabinets at our production facilities in Bowmanville, blending old-word craftsmanship and leading-edge computerized equipment that allows us to use complex processes to build our cabinets more accurately and more efficiently than ever before.
We create finished cabinets that deliver the design, space and look that fulfill your vision which means that every cabinet we build is unique, based on your desires, taste and vision. Our goal, quite simply, is to create finished cabinets that are beyond your expectations. Get in touch with us today.
