News Flash

As of July 1, 2019, two local companies are joining forces –


Watkins Cabinet Co Inc in Barnesville and KWC Inc, a kitchen & bath remodeling company in Damascus. The retirement of J. Rudell “Rudy" Day, who has been the sales manager at Watkins Cabinet and his wife, Cici, office secretary, at the end of June, has left a void. Ken & Kathy Watkins, owners of KWC, have stepped up to fill that void. Their expertise will serve to enhance Watkins Cabinet and make it an even better company to serve the area.

Watkins Cabinet Co was founded in 1952, by Wilbur “Buster" Watkins & his wife, Jeannette. It is one of the leading cabinet companies in the area, manufacturing top-quality, custom-built cabinetry for every room of the home. The showroom and factory are located on Sellman Road just outside Barnesville. With the passing of the founders, three members of the second generation, Joan, Frank and Gerri, now run the business.

KWC was founded in 1976 by Ken Watkins (son of Buster) & his wife, Kathy. They have specialized in kitchen & bath remodeling, cabinet and countertop work, home improvements and repairs. Ken & Kathy will bring over 40 years of experience in designing, building and installing kitchens, bathrooms, bookcases, entertainment centers, home and commercial offices. Ken is a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD) as designated by the National Kitchen & Bath Association.

Because the two companies are related in business as well as being family, it made sense to come together and have the benefit of a single company.

In addition to the custom cabinets manufactured on site at Watkins Cabinet, we will offer some of the stock cabinet lines Ken has been using. In many cases this will lead to shorter lead time and a lower price point for customers who do not need the extra value of custom cabinetry.

We are looking forward to continuing a family tradition of serving the community with outstanding products and enhancing the customer experience with the exceptional quality and service that has been the benchmark of Watkins Cabinet Co for over 60 years.
