In 1971, Leon and Doris Levinthal opened a small cabinetry plant in East Bernard just west of Houston. As a playful twist using both their first names, Leedo was created. Recognizing the booming housing market in Texas, Vic Samuels purchased Leedo in 1981. As European style cabinetry increased in popularity, in 2013 Leedo added a European frameless plant in El Campo, Texas. After fifty years, Leedo is still family owned and has grown in production capabilities to over 600,000 cabinets per year to support multi-family builders, single family builders and distributor partners across the country.
Leedo is dedicated to making our customers successful, both in the short term and the long term. Our dedication to customer service goes hand-in-hand with our long term perspective on the industry. We expect to provide cabinets to builders and distributors for decades to come, and that conviction guides how we treat our customers. Our commitment to this marketplace supports continued investments in quality products and a daily commitment to improving our management processes.
In loving memory of
December 25, 1940 – June 14, 2020
“Those of us fortunate to have excess energy and time after taking care of life’s essentials define our lives by what we choose to do with our ‘non-work’ time – the rest of our lives. What do we dedicate ourselves to? Are we self-indulgent or do we define ourselves by repairing the world and completing creation? We are what we commit ourselves to. We have a responsibility to make the world a better place.”
