Rick Irwin - Kahle's custom made cabinets
Rick Irwin
Rick Irwin brought over 20 years of industry experience with him when he joined Kahle's team in 2003. Rick's involvement in the local manufactured housing industry as Quality Control Manager familiarized him with construction regulations and codes. His capacity as Service Manager developed his customer relations skills. Rick spent many years designing kitchens for a local kitchen distributor using stock cabinets. Working directly with Kahle's factory, he capitalizes on the opportunity to design "outside the box" presenting clients with unique and customized ideas. Rick takes great pride in guiding customers through every step of the remodeling process. Being able to see his concepts materialize into functional, exquisite kitchens provides his greatest reward.
 Lori Sandrock - Kahle's custom made cabinets
Lori Sandrock
Lori began working at Kahle’s Kitchens as a part time receptionist when the current showroom opened in 1999. While assisting the designers, she learned each step involved in helping the customers with their kitchen project, beginning with selection of woods, stain colors, door styles, to the ordering process and the scheduling and coordinating of deliveries and installations. When she started working full time in the fall of 2000, owner Dave Kahle (“The Kitchen Master” as she calls him) taught her the fundamentals of kitchen design and gave her the opportunity to begin designing kitchens. Lori knows the importance of creating efficient and functional as well as beautiful kitchens. Lori says, “The great thing about designing with Kahle’s cabinets is having the options and flexibility which allow us to work with our customers to meet their needs. We can design beautiful, budget friendly kitchens that you are proud to show your family and friends. And with our custom wood hoods, moldings and other decorative and functional accessories we can create your dream kitchen.” Lori will guide you through the entire process step by step to help you create your perfect kitchen.
 Dave Kahle - Kahle's custom made cabinets
Dave Kahle
After serving a four year apprenticeship, Dave Kahle spent his early adult life as a journeyman moldmaker in the glass container industry. All during that time he pursued his passion of cabinet and furniture making as a part time business and hobby. His first kitchen project was for his mother while he still lived at home in 1970. Dave formalized Kahle’s Kitchens when he was laid off during the recession of 1982. Although he was subsequently brought back as a moldmaker his priority changed to self employment. His first employees were hired in 1983 and he left the mold shop and joined them in 1984 as a full time cabinetmaker and kitchen designer. Now, nearly thirty years later, Dave has designed, built and installed thousands of kitchens in the eastern United States. His favorite part of the business remains the challenge of justifying the needs of his customers with the capabilities of his company. He is most proud of the fact that all of his children have been employed in critical roles by Kahle’s Kitchens.
