Our Heritage

Starlite Cab - 4
In 1959, Tom Koetter started Koetter Woodworking with little more than a few pieces of equipment and a commitment to do a superior job. Working at night and on weekends, Tom began turning out mouldings for Starlite Cabinet Company, who soon realized it had found a more reliable supplier of quality work. The rest, as they say, is history.

Tom, with his wife and partner, Mary Frances, went full-time and moved the operation into a 2-story concrete block building next to the family home—the modest beginning of what is today Koetter Woodworking’s modern complex.

2019 will mark Koetter Woodworking’s 60th Anniversary as a family owned and operated business—an accomplishment of which we are proud.

Remembering the keys to our success, our business model is simple–we listen to our customers, develop products and programs to meet their needs, and focus on quality to supply them with products of which they can be proud.

Koetter Woodworking’s commitment to quality, partnership with its suppliers, and attention to customer specifications, creates a value that reaps enduring dividends for your business too.

As a one-stop source for mouldings, doors, stair parts, custom millwork, wood flooring, and more, Koetter Woodworking services cabinet and furniture manufacturers, architectural millwork dealers, and lumber yards. Working together with a variety of distribution chains, Koetter Woodworking is able to provide the entire millwork package for both residential and commercial building projects.
