Cabinet maker back in the game with own business

A veteran Red Deer cabinet maker is back in business — under a new name and with a new product line.

A veteran Red Deer cabinet maker is back in business — under a new name and with a new product line.

Peter Anderson recently launched Anderson Concepts, which sells and installs kitchen cabinets. But he’s worked in the industry for years, including as the former owner of Sadona Development.

Sadona Development closed last January, when Anderson went to work for now defunct Robco Kitchens.

“I went over to Robco after being given a position that I couldn’t refuse,” he said. “It lasted three months, and then they went belly up.”

As Anderson Concepts, he sells cabinets produced by Decor Cabinet Company of Morden, Man. Anderson looks after design and installation, and also does a bit of custom work.

“I got out of the manufacturing end,” he said.

Most of Anderson Concepts’ sales are through local home builders, with demand on the rise as the pace of residential construction quickens.

“I have a feeling that it’s going to get real busy,” said Anderson.

With Sadona, he focused on “high-end” cabinetry. Anderson Concepts’ market is mid- to higher end, Anderson said, similar to that served by Robco.

Consequently, there is a bit of a local void that he thinks Anderson Concepts can tap into.

Meanwhile, Sadona has resurfaced as Sadona Cabinets. However, Anderson is not involved with this company.

He’s currently operating from his Red Deer home, but plans to open a local showroom as business grows.

“I’m going to ramp it up here over the next year or so.

“I’m trying to take it slow.”

Anderson Concepts can be reached by telephone at 403-373-1325.
