American Woodmark Earns Large Business of the Year Honor

American Woodmark earned Large Business of the Year honors in the Top of Virginia Regional Chamber’s annual Greater Good Awards, recognizing the leading kitchen and bath manufacturer for attributes including community service, business performance, character and creativity.

“American Woodmark today is fueled by the same passions with which we began business 38 years ago — a superior customer experience, commitment to the communities in which we live and work, and in creating value through our people,” said Cary Dunston, chief executive officer of American Woodmark. “To be recognized for both our business and character by our local business community is an enormous honor.”

Headquartered in Winchester, Va., with operations across the country, American Woodmark brings the community service philosophies of the Greater Good Awards to life through initiatives such as partnerships, employee service and the American Woodmark Foundation. Since its inception just over 20 years ago, the employee-run foundation has granted more than $4.6 million to local charities and organizations across the country to support education, health care, culture, childhood development and social needs.

“Customer partnerships, employee passion and community support are integral to our success”

American Woodmark’s commitment to do what is right for the community is reflected in the our mission to do what is right for its people and customers. With over 9,000 employees nationwide, American Woodmark strives to create a workplace environment that is rich in citizenship, employee engagement, wellness and opportunity. Customers, which include home remodelers and builders, Lowe’s, Home Depot, dealers and distributors, are assured a partner whose advanced technologies and innovation provides cabinetry solutions that meet today’s design trends and remains ready to adapt to new market demands. In addition, a $30 million corporate headquarters will open in Winchester this spring, enhancing the company’s collaboration, operational excellence, innovation and customer service.

“Customer partnerships, employee passion and community support are integral to our success,” Dunston said. “This Greater Good Award is an exciting affirmation that we’re remembering what’s important as we work together with continued innovation and creativity to help the American family have flawless kitchen experiences.”
