Forty years ago, Bob Van Hofwegen began handcrafting custom cabinets in the storied Dutch farming town of Lynden, Washington. From his small shop on East Wiser Lake Road, Bob labored to perfect his craft. His greatest reward, however, wasn’t the final product. It was the opportunity to work hard, serve his community, and thank God for these gifts.
In the late 1990s, Bob’s sons Eric and Jason joined the growing business. Over the next 20 years, they learned to develop a high level of craft in every aspect of the family business: the cabinets they produced, their processes in and out of the shop and, most importantly, the long-term client relationships they cultivated.
At the age of 80, Bob is still crafting cabinets, and his sons are carrying on his legacy. In early 2018, Eric and Jason partnered with Brad Kuik and Brian Hendricks, gaining their combined 60 years of experience in lean manufacturing and operations management. From our factory and showroom only 10 miles from Bob’s original shop, HighCraft’s team carries on our collective passion for high craft.
