About Us

My name is Jorg Engel and I grew up near Stuttgart in West Germany. I did the traditional 3 year apprenticeship in a growing furniture manufacturing company. I worked for several companies and organizations before I became a master cabinetmaker and founded my own company in 1988 in Southern Germany. My cabinet shop served the area around Stuttgart with fine cabinetry, custom built doors, kitchens and a broad range of residential and commercial millwork.

In 2001 my wife Anette and I immigrated with our 3 children to start a new life in the beautiful Okanagan. With our machines imported from Germany we started Engel Cabinets in February 2002. In 2005 we moved to our production facility on 1386 Carmi Avenue in Penticton.

Over the years we have been working with several young Canadian employees, training them to become fine cabinet maker, including our son Sascha.

Together we developed our reputation for friendly and reliable customer service and high-end European design through new CNC manufacturing technology, allowing us to provide cost effective production for every customer's needs.

We don't take any new customers any longer as Jorg has decided to pursue other ventures. He gave up cabinetry in 2017 after almost 30 years as self employed cabinet maker. .
