We look forward to translating this into more aggressive market share growth and even better buyer experiences."

Last week acpi announced the launch of two new brands to offer their customers new tools, better product value and more professional customer support. acpi will meet an increasing demand in a market currently challenged by supply and service issues, through the creation of their two new cabinetry lines: Echelon Cabinetry for home builders, dealers and remodelers and Advanta Cabinets for multifamily clients and architects.
