President’s message

An Enduring Legacy

Morrie Wolfman has come a long way since his days in Toronto’s Kensington area, where he grew up as the youngest of six children to Polish immigrants. He watched his father work hard and saw how difficult it was to make ends meet.

Commitment and enterprise were apparent in Morrie Wolfman; even as a young boy he worked hard pumping gas at his father’s station after school. His energy and desire soon propelled him out and into the world, taking him through a few different career paths, but ultimately at the age of 22 he had found his passion and began a lifelong career in the kitchen cabinet industry. The Hamilton Plumbing & Heating kitchen cabinet division proved to be the opportunity of his life, as this was where he first met Mr. J.A.Harold and Mr. E.M. Harold of The Sanderson-Harold Company, who had transitioned their organization from Icebox manufacturing to the fine craftsmanship of custom kitchen cabinetry.

 

Over the next 8 years Morrie built a strong and loyal dealer relationship with The Harold brothers and during that time Morrie had often admired the fine craftsmanship of a beautifully carved antique table that sat in the boardroom. When he inquired about buying it, Mr. John A. Harold replied he could only own it if he bought the company. So on March 2, 1964 driven by entrepreneurial passion, the 30-year-old Wolfman took a gamble and bought The Sanderson-Harold Company Limited. The antique table he had always admired now sits proudly in Paris Kitchens’ boardroom, where he continues to share the tales of yesteryears and the enduring legacy of craftsmanship that is the hallmark of his company’s success.
