Local Service

The majority of the U.S. population lives within 500 miles of an American Woodmark assembly plant. This proximity requires less transportation fuel, resulting in lower concentrations of emission in the distribution cycle.

Environmentally Responsible Stewardship

As a leading U.S. manufacturer of fine cabinetry, American Woodmark Corporation is committed to conducting business in a manner that both protects the environment and safeguards public health and safety. To achieve this end, the company proactively identifies potential environmental risks and monitors compliance with appropriate federal, state, local and internal standards.

The company has received certification by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program on all products. The certification was awarded based on compliance across a broad range of activity including air quality, product resource management, process resource management, environmental stewardship and community relations.

The company works with all suppliers to encourage sustainable forestry practices. Particle board and plywood are purchased from suppliers that meet the Composite Panel Association requirements for Environmentally Preferable Products including formaldehyde emissions that comply with ANSI Standards.

The company uses leading edge technologies to limit both hazardous and nonhazardous emissions, byproducts, and waste. Ongoing, formal programs identify opportunities for recycling and reusing materials. When waste ultimately requires disposal, steps are taken to minimize the environmental impact.

The American Woodmark Foundation supports local programs serving the community, including activities focused on maintaining the quality of life.

Our company is dedicated to doing our part in the preservation and sustainability of the environment.
