Derek Wentzell, known by his nickname, “DW,” has been producing a wide range of fine, custom-made wooden cabinet doors for nearly four decades.

DW had a bigger vision – to establish a manufacturing facility in Lunenburg County that could produce, in volume, the finest quality cabinet doors available.

It took over a year, but in the end DW wound up with exactly what he was hoping for – a $1.2 million, state-of-the-art facility that utilizes some of the most advanced door-making machinery in the world today.

“We do doors in a very unique way here. We have traditional quality through technology and we have the technology to make almost whatever you want made. I have the machinery to do the job for you.”

Since DHW Cabinet Doors’ new factory began operations, they have built a loyal clientele that stretches across Nova Scotia from “tip to tip,” one that includes both residential and commercial customers.
