Our mission statement: Customized programs for quality cabinetry components, delivered on-time and complete.
The employees at Valen work every day to achieve this mission. We use the best materials available, carry inventories to provide quick response times, and tailor our products to best satisfy our customers, including special machinings and packaging. We provide this value so our customers can stay focused on their final furniture and cabinetry products.
Throughout 50 years of industry change, Valen has grown, adapted, and solidified its position, operating under the original ownership and always keeping the same emphasis on quality, fast delivery, and value.
Who We Are
Valen began in the early 1960’s in Europe as the original outsource supplier to the furniture industry. In 1985, Valen came to the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina, offering custom drawer manufacturing in North America. In 2006, 5-piece door manufacturing was added in the Lexington, North Carolina plant. Valen serves all of North America including Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico with a full range of drawer and door products.
Valen Romania (known as Valenest) specializes in the production of solid wood drawer components. Located in a region rich in beech, birch, and oak timber, Valen Romania operates an on-site sawmill and a modern kiln-drying facility.
Valen Italy (known as Valenext) is a full service drawer production facility located in the heart of the Italian furniture manufacturing region, with complete machining capabilities for drawers and drawer components. Valen Italy specializes in JIT service within Europe and neighboring regions.
Together, the three global operations of Valen provide an unmatched breadth of materials, expertise, and machining capabilities.
What We Do
Valen is a business to business supplier, having customers in all segments of the custom furniture industry, including:
Kitchens, Offices, Millwork, Closets, Hospitality, Medical and Laboratory, & Home Furnishings.
Valen is prepared to supply all volume requirements with fast, reliable service. We are proud to be long-term suppliers to some of the largest and best known manufacturers. These customers have specialized design and delivery needs which we are pleased to accommodate.
