Company Overview

Leo I. Leiden began this company in 1941 with an entrepreneurial spirit and 16 years of fine craftsmanship under his belt. Since the very beginning, the engineering and ingenuity of the Leiden Cabinet Company has played a part in the growth of large and small companies throughout the United States.

In its early days, during World War II, Leiden manufactured wooden products used by U.S. Army personnel. As the retail environment experienced a growth spurt throughout the late 1940's and 1950's, Leiden was there helping stores create and remodel everything from woodwork in large commercial buildings to the intricacies of customized store fixtures. During that period of growth, Leiden secured its first shopping center job and began operating as a solid corporation.

Many companies have made it onto the list of Leiden Cabinet Company customers over the years. Each and every new client has presented us with unique opportunities to exemplify our expert craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Seventy-seven years after inception, Leiden Cabinet Company is a 130-employee store fixture manufacturing company serving numerous national and local accounts. Headquartered in Twinsburg, we recently added a second Twinsburg facility to meet our growing client needs. Our Twinsburg and Strasburg locations total 210,000 square feet. We believe Leo I. Leiden would be very proud of us and the entrepreneurial spirit that is still a part of Leiden Cabinet today.
