What is Modular Casework?

Casework is precisely engineered so that it can be reconfigured, relocated and reused – at any time. Because it’s modular, you can install it in phases and then re-configure your layout when your cabinet and storage needs change. This allows you to reduce the impact of modifications and expansion on both the environment and your budget. Also, modular casework is fabricated in a factory rather than on the construction site. Benefits include: quick and clean install, easily replicated, efficient use of raw materials. Click here to learn more about stainless steel movable casework.
