About the Cabinet Makers Association
Celebrating over 20 years, the Cabinet Makers Association was incorporated in 1998 by a group of custom cabinetmakers who thought the small to mid-size shops needed to network and help each other grow profitably. Currently, CMA membership is made up primarily of 20 or fewer employee operations, with the vast majority of those being 1-5 person shops. For more information, visit www.cabinetmakers.org
The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA), in conjunction with Woodworking Network, requests that small- and medium-sized shop owners complete their 2020 Benchmark Survey. The answers will provide a clearer picture of the woodworking industry in the U.S. and Canada, while also helping other shops have a better idea of where they stand in relation to the rest of the industry
This annual survey is designed to establish benchmarks for the industry. In doing so, the survey explores business outlook, staffing and compensation, shop rates, CNC automation, construction methods, and marketing. On the demographic side, the survey paints a portrait of where shops are located, number of employees, and what kind of work they do.
Participants are eligible to be entered in a drawing for a free power tool, and they will also receive a copy of the full survey data. Individual survey responses are kept strictly confidential regarding the participant’s name and company.
An overview of the results will be published in the December 2020 issue of FDMC Magazine. You can read the 2019 summary at https://bit.ly/2019-Benchmark
The 2020 survey is open until 12:00 AM on November 1, 2020. To complete the survey, please visit https://bit.ly/2020-Benchmark
