Founded in 2014, Docking Drawer offers a full array of ETL Listed, CE Listed, and Australian Certified for Safety and EMC solutions to safely add electrical outlets inside of drawers, keeping spaces organized and clutter free.
2021 marks our 22nd year of business and our 7th year of Docking Drawer. Our outlets have come a long way from that first KBIS show back in 2014, too. Our charging outlets are in their 5th generation and now can easily fit into standard cabinet layouts, making them simple to specify and easy to install. And because of their ease of use, our outlets are now standard in both remodel and new construction kitchen, bathroom and commercial projects. From homes to hospitals to locker rooms to offices and casinos, our outlets are everywhere.
Where We Began Docking Drawer began with an idea and passion to share it with others. Rewind to 2013 when a successful entrepreneur with semiconductor engineering expertise was remodeling his kitchen. His wife had an idea to declutter their home and requested that four drawers be installed, one for each family member. However, each drawer would contain an outlet. This would give everyone their own organized space to charge their devices while keeping the countertops clutter free.
But he soon discovered that a safe in-drawer outlet solution did not exist. So utilizing his expertise he got to work creating one. The first Docking Drawer prototype was completed a short time later. But it was not merely an outlet in a drawer. It offered interlocking safety features from his semiconductor background to create smart, simple, and safe solutions for any type of drawer. A few weeks later, Docking Drawer was launched at KBIS (the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show) in 2014.
How We Grew Docking Drawer in-drawer outlets received an overwhelmingly positive response at KBIS that year. Based on interest, the company quickly rounded out their in-drawer outlet offerings to include powering outlets in addition to charging outlets and submitted and successfully obtained their first patents.
Word continued to spread about our outlets as our product offerings expanded. To service a wider audience we created a website so customers could place orders and we formed strategic relationships with distribution partnerships such as Hafele, EB Bradley, Hardware Hut and more.
More than just the outlets have evolved, of course. Docking Drawer continues to add staff members to our team. Plus, we’re expanding into new markets like furniture solutions, additional hotels, and customized solutions. In addition to the United States, and Canada, we now offer our safe, quality outlets to Australia and New Zealand, Europe, and the United Kingdom with CE and RCM listed solutions.
