Founded in 1876 by John and Frank Coppes, Coppes Napanee has survived two world wars, a great depression, and three name changes to become the oldest woodworking manufacturer in the United States.
150 Years in the Making
Coppes Napanee began producing its first cabinets almost 150 years ago, making it the longest continuously-operated cabinet manufacturer in the United States.
Founded by two brothers, Frank and John Coppes, it has been a family-owned and family-run business ever since.
Coppes Napanee is credited with being one of the first companies to use the customizable modular style for which it is known.
In 1942, Coppes Napanee designed a pie-cut corner cabinet, an efficient feature that remains popular in kitchens today.
