"We can give people custom architectural millwork that they can't buy off the shelf," says Mark Gundling, founder and owner of Cardinal Building Supply.
"It's about the creativity of the company and the flexibility of it and our service level," says Gundling. "And it's about our people. We've put together a great team." Cardinal Building Supply's experienced and knowledgeable team sets them apart. "We have a staff of millwork experts with a combined 100 years of experience," says Gundling. Gundling has a reverence for wood and enjoys every contact with it, from walks in the forest to cabinet-making to crafting intricate items like grandfather clocks. "People inherently love wood - it's just a beautiful thing," he observes. "We bring a downtown source for millwork," observes Gundling. "We're in a vibrant area near the Short North and other historic neighborhoods as well as all the condos and development in downtown. "Having in-house manufacturing gives us the ability to not only be able to supply unique items but to service things that need quick turnaround," says Gundling. Their expansive and well-stocked storage area allows Cardinal Building Supply to carry a large inventory so they can provide shorter lead times. Even the warehouse workers are geared toward speed. Many are former collegiate wrestlers who bring both strength and focus to delivery and logistics. "We've got some strong guys out there with a great work ethic," says Gundling. Gundling grew up in central Ohio and went to Worthington schools. In high school, he enjoyed spending time in woodworking shop class where a gifted teacher became a mentor who guided Gundling in craftsmanship and taught him how to be a woodworker. "I get a real satisfaction out of starting with a raw piece of wood and finishing with a product that changes the aesthetics of someone's home or commercial project," says Gundling. "This is not only my career but a hobby too - I'm a carver and a wood craftsman. I feel really lucky I've always worked in an industry that I'm really excited about and that I like to get up and do everyday." After studying industrial technology at Ohio Northern University, Gundling worked for retailers selling cabinets and other hardwood products. For four years, he manufactured millwork, buying raw lumber and machining it into finished products. Along the way, he became a cabinet maker and trained carpenter. With his unusually far-ranging knowledge of millwork, Gundling is recognized as a leading millwork expert in central Ohio and beyond. In 1997 he drew on this knowledge and founded Capital City Millwork, which he sold in 2008. Gundling next became a consultant for clients that included Higgins Lumber and Dyke Industries, but he missed running his own business. Realizing there was a niche for custom millwork in Columbus, he founded Cardinal Building Supply in 2014. "It's very satisfying to know that you've made someone happy," says Gundling.
