KSI Kitchen and Bath, a leading kitchen and bath design firm headquartered in Brighton, has announced the acquisition of Walled Lake’s ASA Cabinet Corp. from second generation owners Steven, Eddie, and Mickey Shapiro.
The Shapiro family will maintain ownership of a sister company, ASA Builders Supply. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“We’re incredibly excited to welcome ASA Cabinets’ associates into the KSI family,” says Tony Achatz, president and CEO of KSI. “Their combined decades of experience supporting the cabinetry needs of southeast Michigan’s builders will aid us in fulfilling our mission to be a leading provider of home interior products for builders, contractors, and consumers.”
ASA Cabinet, located at the corner of Welch Road and Easy Street, will become a new KSI location. Additionally, a renovation is planned for 2022 to create a contemporary showroom to increase retail traffic.
ASA Cabinet served as a partner company of ASA Builders Supply, which was founded in 1952 by Asa Shapiro and sells moldings, doors, and stair parts available at its 55,000 square foot warehouse.
“The sale of the cabinetry division allows ASA Builders Supply to focus on our mouldings, door, and stair parts business, while creating the opportunity for ASA Cabinets customers and associates to grow and the business to flourish under the leadership and vision of KSI,” says David Shapiro of ASA Builders Supply.
Founded in 1971, KSI Kitchen and Bath is a family-owned design and remodeling firm that has gone from a single location to having eight design centers throughout western and southeast Michigan.
“As we look for strategic opportunities to grow the KSI Kitchen & Bath brand, the acquisition of ASA Cabinet Corp is a natural fit that reinforces our commitment to the building community of southeast Michigan,” says Bryan Tolles, a KSI principal. “In the coming months, our investment in this location’s showroom will provide area residents with an exciting new space for kitchen and bath design inspiration.”
