On the Shoulders of Giants

Posted in Welcome on June 15, 2011

If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. - Isaac Newton

We were cleaning out an old desk this morning and came across these great pictures of our founders (Yusuf Esmail and Salim Kanji) proudly settling in to our current headquarters in Calgary in 1991. We couldn't help but post the pictures here (and on facebook). Everything we do here today is the direct result of their efforts, skill, and deep knowledge, and we're proud to be able to share their joy moving to their new building some 20 years ago with you.

Yusuf Esmail enjoys his new office

Salim Kanji enjoys his new office

Salim Kanji supervises the setup of our new computers

Yusuf Esmail shows off the new showroom

Our production facility in 1991.

Things sure have changed. The production facility today looks completely different now that it is filled with state-of-the-art, computer-driven, automated machinery. The building has also been extended since these pictures were taken. Of course, some things haven't changed: we're still using that green forklift.

Giving Back: Aga Khan University - Clinical Trials Unit

Posted in Our Community on June 1, 2011

Helping our neighbours has always been an important part of who we are at Classic Kitchens & Cabinets. Today, we're proud to be able to show you pictures of one of our philanthropic projects on the blog.

In December 2009, we built and shipped all of the cabinetry for the Aga Khan University's new Clinical Trials Unit in Karachi, Pakistan. In early 2010, one of the owners of Classic Kitchens & Cabinets made the flight to Karachi to assist with installation of the cabinets throughout the facility. Just this week, we got pictures of our installed cabinets back from the amazing people looking after the project.

The Aga Khan University is a private, autonomous university that promotes human welfare through research, teaching, and community service. The University's state-of-the-art hospitals, staffed with internationally trained health care professionals, provide high quality care on a philanthropic, private not-for-profit basis. And they take quality seriously: the University's Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya holds ISO 9001:2000 certification while the hospital in Karachi, Pakistan holds ISO 9001:2008 certification and has been awarded the prestigious Joint Commission International accreditation.

Importantly, the University is a non-denominational institution open to all, irrespective of religion, ethnicity, gender, or national origin. Remarkably, 44% of the faculty at the University (many in senior posts) are female, while 50% of students in the medical college are female. Admissions to the university are needs-blind and based on merit.

The Aga Khan University has campuses and programs located in a number of countries including Afghanistan, Egypt, Kenya, Pakistan, Syria, Tanzania, Uganda, and the United Kingdom.

We are proud to have been associated with this project at the Aga Khan University.

The pictures can be seen on our facebook page: facebook
