The new Studio Collection includes two new modern-looking door models with more than 30 Uniboard colors available. They will add texture, depth, and style to your projects.

These doors have high thermal resistance, an invisible glue line, and superior moisture tolerance.

Lecxeco’s door edgebanding is all installed using the PUR glue applicator for extra adhesion.

Lecxeco’s comprehensive offering, quality, and service allow the company to maintain a key position in the kitchen and bathroom cabinet industry. Uniboard is proud and enthusiastic about ​​this partnership.

Castaly Machine’s new EB-K7CR Edge Bander offers reliability with affordable quality and several innovations. Features include: an automatic feed station for pre-milling, gluing, pneumatic guillotine, double end trimming, top & bottom rough & fine edge trimming, edge scraper, conner-profile rounding and edge polishing. It also offers an HMI touch screen control for easy operation.

The feed of edging material, by “strip” or coil is automatic and synchronous with the panel feed. Sound/safety covers are included for all work units with all required dust extraction outlets. The edge bander has heavy, robust construction to eliminate vibration and to ensure accuracy and stability. It also features a pressure beam mounted on two heavy cast columns with mechanical digital readout for thickness adjustment with staggered rubber rollers for optimum guidance of workpiece. The chain track with precision ground round guides ensures precise linear tracking of the workpiece and rubber pads to eliminate “marring.” All this, plus an outrigger support for wider work pieces make for a valuable new tool.

The 2023 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), owned by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), announced NKBA’s State of the Industry (SOI) keynote speakers, Drew and Jonathan Scott, hosts and executive producers of HGTV’s ‘Property Brothers: Forever Home’ and ‘Celebrity IOU’.

The SOI featuring the Scott Brothers will take place immediately following NKBA’s State of the Association (SOA), which is the annual update to the membership given by NKBA CEO Bill Darcy. Darcy will interview the Scott Brothers and then moderate a live question-and-answer session with the audience. Both SOA and SOI will take place starting at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1 in the North Hall in rooms N109-N112 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“I’m very excited to have Drew and Jonathan join me at the State of the Industry. Their appearance builds on the direction of SOI that we started last year with Google’s Ginny Clarke, bringing in high-profile leaders to share their perspective on the challenges that impact kitchen and bath,” said Darcy.  “This year, it will be interesting to get Drew and Jonathan’s take on residential builds and remodeling in 2023, and what they see happening in the long term.”

The Scott Brothers discussion will focus on the future of residential, getting their insights on where the real estate and remodeling markets are headed in 2023.

“Drew and I have been investing in real estate since we were 18 — we’ve seen this industry through every cycle and trend,” said Jonathan Scott. “With our shows, we also get to hear first-hand what families want most for their homes and helping them achieve those goals is what we love most about what we do.”

Added Drew Scott: “Over the past decade, we have built, rebuilt, renovated, redesigned and reimagined hundreds of spaces for our homeowners. We get to work with the best builders, tradespeople, and designers around, and together, we’re educating people on making the best and most informed decisions they can for their families.”

Drew and Jonathan are the powerhouse hosts of some of HGTVs all-time highest-rated shows including ‘Property Brothers,’ ‘Brother vs Brother,’ and ‘Celebrity IOU.’ Since the first airing of ‘Property Brothers’ in 2011, Drew and Jonathan have built an empire and founded Scott Brothers Global, a company rooted in providing products, education, entertainment, and inspiration to households around the world.

The brothers were recently named one of the most powerful lifestyle brands in America by Variety Magazine, with their serial entrepreneurship, extensive product lines for Scott Living by Drew & Jonathan and Drew & Jonathan Home, and advocacy work in clean energy and affordable housing highlighted as their most significant accomplishments.
