Our Story.

In 1969, a young designer and entrepreneur named Ellis Shamoon had an idea. His concept was to take an ordinary cutting board and give it a special artistic flair so that it could be left out on the kitchen counter as a piece of functional art. Department stores liked the idea of specialty cutting boards so much that Dexas was born.

Consumer demand for specialty cutting boards and other products propelled Dexas to become a multi-faceted, international consumer products company, with product lines in housewares, school and office and pet specialty categories. Over the years, Dexas has remained committed to Texas and US based manufacturing, providing good jobs to our neighbors and service to our community. Dexas is proud to be the largest producer of poly cutting board units in the USA.

Premier retail chains to single-store independents have long valued Dexas as a provider of award-winning innovation, high quality products, category growth performance and exceptional customer service.  Today, Dexas has all of its considerable capabilities in house – new product development, industrial design, engineering, product management, manufacturing, international sourcing, marketing, packaging and graphic design. Dexas remains a family business with all employees dedicated to bringing quality & innovative products to its customers.
