About Us

Our firm is one of the few, if not the only, woman owned architectural millwork firm in the nation.

The company was started by Gerry Dzurek in 1989 with little more than some experience and a whole lot of heart. In 2015 Gerry sold the company to Kara DiPietro, his daughter. We are, and will remain, focused on doing our fair share, to create jobs by keeping our manufacturing in the
United States of America.
