Important Information about the Cabinet Makers Association of WA

Established in 1980, The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) of WA aims to raise the level of industry professionalism and improve industry standards in order to deliver better value for consumers.
With over 250 members across the state, the CMA represent a considerable segment of all established cabinet makers in WA as well as many industry suppliers.  For information about supplier members and the products and services they offer please contact the CMA office on 1300 768 016 or go to the CMA website.

The WA cabinet making industry is characterized by a large number of small businesses. While this can result in healthy competition, some consumers find cabinet makers will cut corners, resulting in questionable quality standards.

So if you choose a CMA member for your project you can be confident that you are dealing with a professional endorsed by the only organisation solely representing the industry in WA.
