In honor of MFG Day 2016, Strategic Economic Development Corporation (SEDCOR), the lead economic development entity for Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley, partnered with the AKT Manufacturing team to award a Certificate of Recognition to Salem manufacturer, Cabinet Door Service Co. LLC.


Cabinet Door Service is a Salem based manufacturer of custom hardwood components. The company has been in Salem since it was started in 1989 and today employs 200 people.


Chad Summers, AKT Manufacturing Business Advisor, and SEDCOR President Chad Freeman presented the certificate to a select group that represented the employees of Cabinet Door Service. The company was also recognized in early September as SEDCOR’s 2016 Manufacturer of the Year.


AKT is a sponsor of MFG Day 2016, a national celebration of the manufacturing industry demonstrating the potential of modern manufacturing, and the opportunity for careers. “Our team is proud to partner with valued trade associations and support worthy organizations helping to address the challenges manufacturers face in attracting talent and skills into their industry sector,” said Summers.

As this year’s recipient of our Certificate of Recognition for Manufacturing Day 2016, AKT will make a donation in the name of CabDoor to the following three organizations to help support their mission and contribute a positive impact to the future of manufacturing:

  • Clackamas Academy of Industrial Sciences (CAIS), providing students an innovative, contextual learning environment focused on Manufacturing Technologies.
  • Impact NW: Pathways to Manufacturing, an incubator for high school-aged children designed to address industry workforce needs, help lower the drop-out rate, and provide clear pathways to rewarding careers in manufacturing.
  • For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST), showing students of every age that science, technology, and problem solving are not only fun and rewarding, but are proven paths to successful careers and a bright future for us all.

MFG Day will be officially celebrated across the United States on October 7, 2016.


SEDCOR and AKT Manufacturing are actively involved in the manufacturing sector. Both organizations strive to provide resources, education and assistance to help manufacturers take on the unique challenges and opportunities they face.
