“It’s hard to put a number on it,” he said, “but I know it’s enormous. It has lots of potential.”
Cole said Monday’s mission was to show the association three key things about both companies: “Capacity, inventory and the quality of workmanship.”
About half of IDI’s business is kitchen cabinets, Rentschler said, which makes the visit from the association to a non-cabinet-exclusive facility all the more impressive.
“Until they come here, it’s all a bunch of talk,” Rentschler said. “We want to show them our people here, show them our equipment.”
Rentschler said other tour groups had come through the plant, but Monday’s tour was a culmination of years of being persistent with the cabinet association.
“This tour will give us credibility with folks that I’ve been calling for years and years,” he said. “They will actually come here and see what we have here in Logansport.”
