Combining the highest quality materials, craftsmanship and customer service has been a formula of success for Apollo, Pa. based CCF Industries. A leading manufacturer of custom drawers since 1995, the company’s slogan is “We don’t cut corners, we dovetail them!”


There’s a lot of truth in that: CCF has become known for delivering on spec and on time. That comes from a recognition that woodshops need a combination of industry leading craftsmanship and top notch customer service in this competitive market. With that in mind, the company has introduced programs such as an online Quick-Quote, and a Quality Promise that the team will provide ‘quality craftsmanship and customer service with every drawer produced’. If a woodshop isn’t satisfied, CCF will correct the situation. Guaranteed.


“Our dedicated craftsmen and customer service team will stop at nothing to provide the best drawers on the market today,” says company president Ken Clifton. “Our dovetailed drawers help custom cabinet shops reduce their capital investment, dramatically cut their production time, and of course increase profits. Plus, their customers have always loved our high quality, and also the array of material choices that we offer.”


CCF carries most species and select cuts of solid woods such as, but not limited to: soft and hard maple, beech, red oak, white oak and poplar. And the company works in 9-ply Baltic birch, Ultrafoil melamine, and other plywood options, too.


A custom woodshop designer needs to differentiate the shop’s products from factory casework, and to that end CCF offers personalized laser engraving, edge banding, front and side scoops, file slots (with or without bars), under-mount drawer slide notching and boring, and quality slides from leading manufacturers. Every solid wood drawer that leaves the shop floor has two coats of UV finish inside, and each exterior is sanded and finished after assembly for a complete, professional look and feel. Drawer bottoms are available in 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" thicknesses, and all top edges are eased thumbnail (flat and flush are available as an option).


But it’s more than materials that sets CCF apart. Time is money, and a woodshop that’s juggling several kitchens or commercial projects doesn’t have time for problems. CCF delivers on time, consults on freight logistics, and lets a shop know up front what the current lead times are. Its all new, state-of-the-art facility in Apollo can now handle larger volume while still maintaining the very highest quality standards.


“We increased our floor space to 23,500 square feet last year,” Clifton says. “And that allowed us to add a second straight-line Oliver ripsaw, a new Omnitech CNC router, a Holz-Her beam saw and a couple of 25-spindle Dodd dovetailers. We also improved the dust collection system, and added a Dubois UV finishing line, both of which help us deliver even better results.”


Specialty drawers are also available, including the newly re-designed double deck drawer with a top cap that conceals the drawer slide for a cleaner look. Another example of the company’s innovation is a new cigar humidor called the Humidrawer™. Made with the aficionado in mind, it’s lined with Spanish cedar and can be built in the customer’s choice of species. Other specialty options include pegboard bottoms with pins; canned goods and spice racks; wine drawers in one or two decks; knife and cutlery dividers; bread boxes; waste baskets (for trash or recycling); file and pencil drawers; clothing specific storage (such as sock drawers and tie racks); U-shaped under-sink designs; slide-out shelves; and an amazing corner drawer that maximizes storage space and thrills custom buyers.


CCF has no order minimums: they’ll make one drawer or a thousand (quantity discounts are available). Heights can run from 2" to 24", and widths and depths are all customized to a shop’s individual needs. And a woodshop can order drawers finished or unfinished, assembled or unassembled – whatever the job or the budget requires.


Custom made drawers at affordable prices. It just doesn’t get any better.
