We're a new company with a lot of experience
Marte Yerkins is the company owner and a journeyman cabinetmaker who has spent his 30+ year career as a craftsman and marketing professional in the cabinet and hardware industries. With an extensive knowledge of kitchen design and functional hardware (anything that makes parts of a cabinet move) he has worked for and with major manufacturers in the USA, Europe and Asia. In 1989, he and wife Mary Jo established Casemarte, Inc., a cabinet shop building store fixtures and commercial displays for companies throughout the US and Canada.
The vision for Kitchen Retrofit began when Marte and Mary Jo realized the need for a company that specializes in the installation of hardware systems that make working in the kitchen a pleasure. Many modern mechanisms have a sophisticated design requiring special skills to install them properly so experience is crucial when cabinets are to be upgraded. Located in the Lake Norman region of North Carolina, the Kitchen Retrofit shop builds the products that are installed into your cabinets.
Kitchen Retrofit may be new in name, but the people behind it have the experience to create satisfied customers when cabinet customization and upgrades are desired for a better lifestyle.
We are currently servicing the Lake Norman, NC communities.
