Meet Our Team

Chester Damico

Founder

Chester gained years of experience in the carpentry industry, where he became a Master Carpenter. In 1964, he started his own Kitchen & Bath design, sales, & installation firm known as Fairmont Kitchen Center. Then in 1979 he had the foresight to start making his own cabinets. This is when he formed the parent company Mountaineer WoodCraft. The company grew from a local manufacturer to include a network of dealers in the Pittsburgh area. The retail side also continued to flourish under his leadership. In 2002 he retired, but still continues to oversee installations and has a hand in day to day operations. His attention to detail and craftsmanship have helped shape the company into what it is today.

Trudy Anderson

PRESIDENT/OWNER

Trudy is the daughter of Chester. After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design at West Virginia University, she joined Fairmont Kitchen Center in 1972. While learning the business from her father, she became the Senior Designer of the company. As her experience and understanding of the business grew, she decided to go back to school where she received her MBA from West Virginia University in 1990. She became President of the company in 2002 after her father retired. Mainly working from referrals, she has become known as an exceptional Kitchen & Bath Designer. With her years of experience, she has the ability to give the customers exactly what they have envisioned. In 2014 , she realized her dream of a new showroom, doubling the display area and moving the showroom to a more accessible space for her Morgantown and Clarksburg clients while maintaining her home town Fairmont clients and neighbors.  The new showroom allows her to show  how Fairmont Kitchen Center and Mountaineer Woodcraft together can create any type of cabinetry, for any space, in any design flavor  with complete confidence that the final product will give her client’s something they will be uniquely proud to have in their home.
