ClosetMaid® Celebrates 50 Years of Innovative Storage and Organization Products

Company to Launch its Golden Anniversary Celebration at the International Builders Show with New Products, Finishes and the Chance for Attendees to Win Daily Prizes

Ocala, Fla. January 14, 2015 —This year marks the 50th anniversary of ClosetMaid, a leading manufacturer of storage and organization products for the home. ClosetMaid will kick-off this milestone anniversary at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas, January 20-22, 2015, with the launch of several new products and finishes for building professionals and promotional giveaways for attendees.

Designed to provide visitors with a unique in-home experience, ClosetMaid’s booth (C6126) features a variety of room vignettes with different storage and organization options that can help homeowners achieve their own state of organization.

One such product is TotalSlide® Pro, which is ideal for closets in any room or of any size. This cost-effective upgrade option, available to both builders and remodelers, easily attaches to an existing low-profile wire shelf to provide a continuous slide along wire shelving units and helps to increase available hang space where needed. This product is also easier to cut, thereby reducing waste, and saves installation time. After a successful launch last year, TotalSlide Pro is now available in White and an attractive new finish: Satin Chrome. 

In addition to TotalSlide Pro, ClosetMaid’s booth will showcase its other ventilated wire shelving products.  Originally invented by ClosetMaid’s founders back in 1965, the company has evolved its ventilated wire shelving into a variety of finishes, depths and fixed and adjustable mounting options.  All ClosetMaid wire shelving is proudly made in the USA and is certified by SCS Global Services, a leading third-party certifier for environmental labels and claims, for being made from 91 percent recycled content and for meeting indoor air quality standards.

“ClosetMaid was founded on producing quality wire shelving,” says Lou Cuomo, Vice President, Building Division, ClosetMaid. “However, over our 50 year history, our company has progressively advanced and now offers a wide mix of storage products in a variety of materials – all with the ultimate goal of helping people get organized.”

Builders interested in affordable upgrade options to wire shelving will want to preview ClosetMaid SuiteSymphony, a wood-laminate product.  Available in a sophisticated, new Natural Gray finish, building professionals can start ordering this product beginning in March 2015.  Easy to design and install, SuiteSymphony is available in 16-inch and 25-inch towers, which can be combined to create customized designs.  Optional accessories include drawers, door fronts, shoe shelves and expandable hang rods. 

“From the start, ClosetMaid has been committed to creating quality, yet affordable, storage products for the home,”said Cuomo. “Builders and homebuyers will be able to see how simple, functional and beautiful their homes can be with our latest storage options.”

During the three days of the 2015 International Builders Show, ClosetMaid will also randomly give away the following prizes:  Twenty $50 gift cards and two $2,000 closet makeovers.  Show attendees must stop by the ClosetMaid booth to enter the contest and find out if they have the winning ticket.
