Kanneberg Custom Kitchens was founded by Roger Kanneberg in a rented building on Railroad Avenue, in 1965. With only himself, some tools, ideas, skill and determination, Roger pursued his dream of building custom cabinetry for new construction, and remodeling. After long hours and hard work, the company grew and prospered, allowing Roger to move his shop to a larger building and continue to expand.
Today they are located at 1242 Shappert Drive, In Machesney Park, Illinois.
Kanneberg Custom Kitchens is now a well known, established company in Rockford and the surrounding area. Having designed, built, and installed cabinets in over 10,000 homes, working with many of the local contractors, and builders, the company is expanding to include work into the Chicago suburbs.
In 1978 Fred Cook signed on as a custom door builder. Learning from Roger, and using his own talents, Fred soon became a valued and important part of the company, building and installing complete cabinet systems. Fred has experience in every aspect of the cabinet trade, designing, building, finishing, and installing beautiful custom woodwork. In 1994 Fred was asked to partner with Roger. Since then, the company has grown by leaps and bounds. With the help of their employees, they have built and installed, thousands of custom kitchen, vanities, mantles, surrounds, bars, and different style bookcases.
Following in Roger's footsteps, his son Toby joined the company in 1998. Toby is learning the trade from Roger and Fred, so he may also become a partner someday.
