ARCHBOLD, Ohio — Kitchen Tune-Up, a kitchen renovation
franchise, will become a dealer for the Closet Trac configurable
closet cabinetry, a product line made by Sauder Woodworking’s Wood Trac operation.
Dave Haglund, the president and founder of Kitchen Tune-
Up, became interested in Wood Trac’s products for potential
kitchen usage after reading about the them in various trade
publications. From there, Wood Trac director of sales and
marketing, Jonathan Zublena, connected with Jessica Ruenz,
vendor relations and training coordinator for Kitchen Tune-
Up. After discussing the mutual benefits, it was decided their
partnership would be a great fit for both companies.
Wood Trac closet systems are an easy and affordable way
to add functionality and value to a space in a small amount
of time, which supports Kitchen Tune-Up’s eight custom-
er service ‘trustpoints’ applied to every project. http://bit.
