About Us

Modern Cabinet Company was founded in 1945 by David Schor and two other partners.  Acquiring  an old stable on 125th Street in New York City as a site for the new company to work from they began manufacturing cabinets. By 1960, the two partners were gone and Modern Cabinet Company was supplying many builders in the NY metro area with their kitchens. The factory (no longer a stable) had been expanded to include two adjacent buildings.

In 1971 Modern Cabinet Company moved from NYC to Mt. Vernon. During this period, David Schor’s son Andrew joined the firm. Andrew is the current Chief Executive Officer for Modern Cabinet Company. Another change took place during this period as well, Modern’s customer base started shifting away from multi-family builders toward upscale private residential homes.

In 1984, Modern moved to its current location in Poughkeepsie, NY. Poughkeepsie is located in the Hudson Valley about 60 miles north of NYC and 50 miles south of Albany, NY. The production facility has grown from 15,000 square feet to over 40,000 square feet over the past 30 years.  In 2007, Andrew’s son Samuel joined the company and is now acting Vice President, making us a third generation family owned business.

Modern Cabinet continues to constantly improve and upgrade their manufacturing procedures to produce a better end product.  Combining age old hand techniques with modern technology Modern Cabinet Company is able to produce a precise quality product that will last a long time.    Modern Cabinet now specializes in manufacturing full custom cabinetry for any application in the home.
