Industry Insight

We’ve been trusted for 40 years to create casework and cabinetry for every industry, each with its own distinct set of requirements and challenges. Across all sectors, custom casework solutions tailored to specific industries offer improved efficiency, enhanced aesthetics and long-term durability. At HWI, we understand the unique requirements of each sector and offer tailored casework solutions to meet them. In this blog, we explain what to take into consideration to get the most out of cabinetry in your industry.


In the healthcare sector, casework plays a pivotal role in ensuring the delivery of quality care in hospitals, clinics, and medical offices. Tailored casework solutions for healthcare facilities prioritize hygiene, durability, and functionality to meet the unique demands of medical environments. For instance, casework with antimicrobial surfaces is increasingly becoming a standard, as it significantly reduces the risk of cross-contamination and supports infection control protocols. Casework must also withstand rigorous and regular cleaning routines while remaining in pristine condition. Of course, functional casework helps to make the roles of healthcare professionals easier while improving the patient experience. Adjustable shelving, lockable drawers, and easy-to-reach storage mean that medical supplies are easily accessed by professionals while remaining safe and secure.

Education brings to mind classrooms and chalkboards, but education spans much more. From bustling science labs to peaceful libraries, casework in the education sector must be versatile and adaptable. Quiet library cabinets with soft-close hinges ensure that students can study in peace. Adaptable shelving optimizes storage of everything from books to stationary to bunsen burners. Using durable materials such as melamine and five-knuckle hinges is also essential so that, no matter how many teachers or students use them, cabinets and storage remain pristine. From accommodating a diverse array of teaching methods to seamlessly integrating technology, educational casework must evolve to meet the changing needs of students and educators alike.

Hospitality / Retail

In the hospitality sector, casework goes beyond functionality and becomes a pivotal element in guest experiences. Aesthetics and branding take center stage, as customized cabinetry and display units are meticulously crafted to reflect the unique identity and ambiance of each establishment. From sleek and modern designs that exude sophistication to rustic and cozy aesthetics that evoke a sense of warmth, hospitality casework plays a crucial role in setting the tone and leaving a lasting impression on visitors.

Corporate Workspaces

Casework and cabinetry are the backbone of organization and efficiency in modern workspaces.  By facilitating workflow and improving productivity, employees and business owners benefit from tailored casework. From ergonomic desk setups to versatile storage solutions, such as file cabinets, electronics compartments, and office supply organizers, casework optimizes space utilization and enhances operational functionality.

Industrial and Manufacturing

Durability and functionality are the two most important factors to consider when designing casework and cabinetry for industrial sectors. Casework must withstand rigorous operational demands while maximizing efficiency.  From robust storage solutions capable of housing heavy equipment and raw materials to sturdy workstations engineered to endure constant use, industrial casework plays a pivotal role in optimizing workflow and productivity. Vast warehouses, busy factories and precision manufacturing plants all benefit from tailored casework and cabinetry.
