Safina is not just a name but also a story. Three decades ago, a young boy spent summers helping his grandfather in his kitchen remodeling business. He grew up learning true craftsmanship and an unparalleled commitment to quality and customer service. He also experienced his grandfather’s frustrations when cabinets ordered from large manufacturers didn’t live up to his expectations.
Derek Centorbi got introduced to what would later become his passion. He developed true craftsmanship and attention to detail that was inconceivable by competitors. Since 1995, Derek has built Centorbi Cabinetry into something miraculous and appealing for all homeowners in the St. Louis area.
Twenty-five years later, Derek has combined creativity, the art of cabinetmaking, and a modern flair to present his new line Safina. The name Safina is the original interpretation of Centorbi but was changed when Derek’s great grandfather moved from Italy to America over a century ago. Now, we plan to bring back the Italian inspiration and embed it into American manufacturing with our custom cabinetry.
