Marsh Furniture has met the rigorous standards required to earn KCMA Certification. To merit this honor, our cabinets have been tested and passed…
- Construction and materials requirements
- Five structural tests to measure the cabinet’s structural integrity
- Two drawer tests
- Two door operation tests to measure durability
- Four finish tests
Tests are performed by approved third-party independent laboratories. Samples for testing are selected in an unannounced visit to the manufacturing plant.
At Marsh Furniture, we are committed to being responsible members of not only our community — but of our planet as well. We’ve been making cabinets for over 100 years, and we figure if we want to be around for 100 more years, we’d better do it in an environmentally responsible way.
To this end, we engage in responsible and low-impact sourcing, building and manufacturing processes. We also give back to the community through service, donations and outreach initiatives. These beliefs and practices have earned us acceptance into the Kitchen Manufacturers Association’s Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP), which encourages industry policies and practices that benefit the environment and the wellbeing of society.
The ESP seal lets consumers, builders, architects, and others know they are supporting sustainability when they buy or specify ESP certified products. As a certified participant in KCMA’s distinguished ESP program, Marsh Cabinets will continue to support sustainability in the areas of air quality, resource management, environmental stewardship and community relations.
