About Us


Cabinet Solutions is firmly rooted in the ICI sector. After years of working in the family’s business, Smith Bros Contracting, Rick Smith branched out in 1988 to manufacture the cabinets he saw a need for. One of the most important things Rick took away from the now almost 100-year-old family business was the idea of doing a “proper” job. To this day, our installers look forward to installing cabinets on walls built by Smith Brothers, knowing they will be level, flat and square whether it’s a minor renovation or a large institutional project. Starting small but tackling large jobs resulted in Rick calling on his family to keep up. Landra and all 3 kids built more than their share of drawers over the years.

Rick was always quick to embrace quality machinery and new technology. Cabinet Solutions developed a reputation for quality cabinets and a capacity to exceed expectations for a small shop. The business relocated from Stoney Creek to the Ancaster Industrial Park in 1992 to keep up with demand and then moved again in 2011 to Brantford to our current 10,000 sqft shop. As technology became more common in the small shop environment, our company has continued to re-invest to stay at the top of the curve.

2017 brought new ownership that recognized the value built into the business. Immediately investing in software has pushed our lean journey to the next level. Drew Neven set out to improve the customer experience. To meet the needs of today’s construction projects, we use Microvellum design software to program our machines and Innergy ERP to price work and track our inventory accurately. Drew, a fourth-generation woodworker, has been installing millwork in exclusive custom homes throughout the Golden Horseshoe since his first high school co-op. The love of all things wood, coupled with the relentless need to be competitive in production, shows through in the technology in our shop today. The transition to the supply side of the industry brings along a hands-on knowledge of everything involved in successful project completion. As the 5th generation brings youthful energy to the industry, the future is bright.


Using the latest technology and machinery, we provide high-quality millwork and cabinets along with exceptional customer service.
