History

When Dirk De Vries and Dave Rempel first brought Adora Kitchens and Cabinetry to Coaldale, Alberta in 1981, we had one delivery van and two employees. Back then, we operated out of a 3,500 sq. ft. building and had no automated machinery – meaning we did everything by hand. Today, Dirk and his partners Ken Anton and Peter Hulst have grown Adora into one of southern Alberta’s most successful cabinet design and manufacturing companies. We now have 10 vehicles, 41 employees and operate out of a modern 29,000 sq. ft. facility. That facility still houses our original 3,500 sq. ft. building and is equipped with top-of-the-line computerized equipment. And just like our original building, we’re proud to say many of our customers have been with us from the very start.

What doesn’t change

Although our business has grown tremendously over the past 30 years, our approach to doing business has remained the same. Adora still believes that the place you call home should make your life more enjoyable in every way. To us that means your home should offer serene, comfortable surroundings that enhance the quality of life for you and your family. Kitchens should be functional and beautiful, bathrooms should be organized and luxurious, and family rooms should be fun and functional.

We believe our customers deserve the best. And we take pride in putting our experience, expertise and commitment to work to bring the best to you.

We’re proud of our hardware

Sometimes our commitment to doing the best for our customers leads to a few awards of our own. We’ve been named as the Canadian Home Builder’s Association – Lethbridge Region – Member’s Choice Award Best Trade Winner seven times during its nine-year history. We’ve also been recognized for our commitment to earning customer loyalty, and were named the 2009 winner of the SouthGrow economic development alliance award for Achievement in Business Retention. And in 2011, we received an honourable mention in the Large Business Category for the Better Business Bureau’s Ethics Awards.

We’re honoured by these awards and humbled to know both our customers and our peers appreciate our hard work and commitment to delivering outstanding, ethical customer service. We also think it speaks volumes that when our customers decide to sell their homes, their realtors often list Adora rooms as one of their top selling features.

“It’s always an honour to be recognized with awards. But for us the true measures of our success are the customers who send their friends and family to us because they know Adora will do their best for them.”
