CAS America Wins Remodeling Award for State-of-the-Art Closettec Showroom Design

READING, MA AND NORTH SMITHFIELD, RI… CAS America, a family-owned manufacturing company that designs and produces customer-specific casework, is a winner of the 2022 Chrysalis Award for Remodeling Excellence.

Continuing to set new standards of professionalism, 79 companies from across the United States were named winners at the 2022 Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence. The entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.

CAS America was honored with the prestigious Chrysalis Award for their innovative design of the Closettec Showroom, which features prototypes of custom-designed and custom-built quality storage solutions for home and office. Making closet design fun and interesting, the showroom included traditional walk-in closets, Murphy wall beds, custom bookcases, a Mudroom, an innovative laundry room featuring a Pet station and more. The design breaks the traditional showroom model of a boring plain closet and showcases a whole home layout highlighting total home storage solutions utilizing the latest products, lighting and accessories. What also makes it unique is that all displays were manufactured locally and feature products from the multiple divisions of The Beck Companies. This is the first Chrysalis Award for CAS America.

There are three Closettec Showrooms - one in the manufacturing facility in North Smithfield, RI, another is a state-of-the-art mobile showroom, and their newest location is inside Jordan’s Furniture in Reading, MA. CAS America and Closettec are among the The Beck Companies’ family of five companies based in North Smithfield, RI.

“This was the first year they have entered the awards, and to take home top honors on the first attempt is impressive,” says Ken Kanline, Director of the Awards.

According to Tracey Beck, owner of The Beck Companies, “This has far exceeded our expectations and we are incredibly proud CAS America was named among the best in the remodeling industry.”

The Chrysalis Awards program, begun in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best work in fourteen general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. The Chrysalis Awards are open to every professional remodeler and design professional in the United States.

Pictures and summaries of the 2022 award-winning projects can be seen on Chrysalis website beginning in August.
