The Origins of Cabinets Direct USA

Cabinets Direct USA is a third generation family business founded by Moe Zimmerman in 1935. The company’s humble beginnings consisted of Moe traveling into the Lower East Side of New York to purchase maintenance supplies and resell them door to door to apartment complexes.

From the very beginning, the company implemented a philosophy of giving great customer service. As the company grew, more products were added to the sales mix. Soon the company purchased a small warehouse in East Orange, New Jersey. Many of Moe’s customers asked if he could supply them with ice boxes. Keeping up with his great customer service philosophy, Moe, of course, said yes. From the first sale of an ice box came many orders for other appliances. Soon afterward, Moe’s sons-in-law Charles Lubetkin and Stephen Weintraub came into the business and grew the company into a large appliance chain of 41 stores.

The company was then separated into two. One was the appliance chain called Brick Church Appliance and the other was called Apartment House Supply. The appliance chain was sold in 1988. Apartment House Supply was run by Charles’s son David Lubetkin, who began to sell kitchen cabinets to apartment complexes.

The kitchen cabinet business grew so fast that the company sold its maintenance supply division to focus strictly on the cabinets and the name was changed to Cabinets Direct USA. Today, the company is one of the largest cabinet companies on the East Coast and has six modern showrooms located in Livingston, Orange, Paramus, Toms River, Wayne, and West Long Branch.

  • My experience with Kathy Hunter at Cabinets Direct USA in Livingston was excellent right from the start. She sat with me and went over kitchen layout options and her suggestions were very helpful. It was always clear she was very talented in design, working with my space and understanding how a family moves about the kitchen. She helped me pick a traditional white cabinet which was priced right and came out beautiful. My kitchen looks gorgeous and functions perfectly, I have my dream kitchen. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for kitchen design and cabinetry.

  • We recently re-did our kitchen and it came out beautifully. It would not have turned out so beautifully without the design, taste and imagination of Adam Eiland.

  • Kathy is incredible and we are so fortunate to have had her as our kitchen designer. Her design skills are exceptional and she helped guide us in building a dream kitchen by bringing to our attention details that we had not thought of before. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy with our purchase. And we are certainly thrilled with our new kitchen!  She is kind, responsive and truly reflects superb customer service. We highly recommend working with her and are ever grateful for finding her. Thank you, Kathy!

  • My family worked with Robin at the Wayne location in creating our new kitchen. From the start, Robin was extremely helpful and scheduled an appointment with us for a future date where we could sit with her to design the kitchen in full. She spent a lengthy amount of time with us and answered every question we had. She also was prompt in answering emails which was very helpful for us during the workday. We ordered Diamond cabinets and they arrived a week earlier then scheduled. We did have one cabinet that was incorrect but Robin took care of the problem quickly. We are pleased with our new kitchen and recommend Robin to work with!
