Plato Woodwork| 120th Anniversary Celebration  | 6/18-6/21

Plato Woodwork one of America’s preeminent fine custom cabinetry manufacturers celebrated their 120th anniversary this summer. The 5th generation company’s vision for beauty and passion for excellence was clearly demonstrated in the details of the week’s itinerary.

Optima Sales Group had the privilege to join the over 85+ dealers and Plato family for a week of fun and excitement that included accommodations at the all new Radisson Blu at Mall of America. A welcome reception on the Sky Bridge overlooking the Radisson Blu lobby kicked off the week’s events.

After a productive tour of Plato’s state-of-the art manufacturing facility Plato President, Karl Pinske opened his personal residence for all in attendance to enjoy an afternoon picnic. The relaxing afternoon was spent enjoying a traditional picnic feast, visiting with dealers and Plato staff members and concluded with a tour of Karl’s home that boasts the beautifully crafted Plato Woodwork product.

With opportunities to attend the Art + Science seminar featuring Ellen Cheever, CMKBD, ASID, CAPS or a Minnesota Twins game at Target Field, we enjoyed the invaluable time spent with each of our dealers and new friends. The evening carried on with the Gala Dinner in the Mall of America’s Executive Center where Plato recognized each of their dealers’ efforts, accomplishments and their many successes throughout the years.

In closing, the Advisory Council meeting was held and opened up to all Plato dealers which allowed for great discussion and feedback; something that is crucial to the continued success of Plato Woodwork. Our dealers’ input, thoughts, suggestions and  recommendations were presented and well received.
