Core values drive CABTEQ Solutions
Fast growing commercial cabinetry firm
relies on people first, then technology.
Ben Chapman said he could talk about his company all day. The president of two- year-old CABTEQ Solutions
has a lot to say when it comes to his business, partnerships, core values and his
employees. Established in the spring of
2016 in Rock Hill, S.C., the company is a
commercial cabinet dynamo that offers
design, manufacturing and installation
services and serves a variety of commercial markets, including the dental and
CABTEQ Solutions began as a stra-

of the world’s leading dental equipment
manufacturers. Chapman started at
Pelton & Crane in 1994 assembling vari-
ous dental equipment products includ-
ing cabinets. “I was 18 and they put me
through college. After college, I joined
the operations/procurement team and
eventually became the Director of Pro-
curement,” he said.
The opportunity for the creation of
CABTEQ arose when Pelton & Crane
approached Chapman to launch a dedi-

decided to set it up in his hometown of
Rock Hill. “It was honor to continue be-

We focused on creating a first-class cabi-
net shop, and are now set up to compete
for years to come” said Chapman.
The company was jump-started
with a $3 million investment, including
$250,000 from the state of South Carolina. CABTEQ occupies an 80,000-sq.
ft. building in Rock Hill that was once
a printing facility. The building had sat
empty for several years.

the remainder in medical, veterinar-
