Winnipeg based Grade A Millwork is a family owned custom cabinetry company started in 2000 by brothers Mark Silvaggio and Dan Silvaggio. Since the boy's father had owned his own cabinetry business since 1972, Mark and Dan grew up in the industry, and started working in the business alongside their father at the age of 13. Their father instilled in his sons the values of quality, craftmanship, and how to build a project properly. Upon completing school, the brothers both chose to gain experience in the industry apart from their father. While working for a variety of local cabinet shops, Mark and Dan learned that not all the participants in the cabinetry industry shared the values of quality and craftmanship taught to them by their father.
