Docking Drawer, a division of JTech Solutions Inc., started as an idea back in 2013 when our Founder, Scott Dickey, was remodeling his family condo. Scott's wife was on a mission to incorporate functional organization solutions and expressed a desire to include 4 powered drawers in the new kitchen. Adding an outlet to each of the four drawers would allow every member of the family to have their own hidden charging station, eliminating cords and devices from the countertops and surfaces in their small condo space.
That's when this successful entrepreneur, with experience in semiconductor engineering, discovered that a safe in-drawer outlet solution did not exist, and he got to work. Designed specifically for use inside the drawer, the first Docking Drawer prototype included an interlocking safety feature and intentional design that made it a safe and durable solution for in-drawer power. One year later, in 2014, Docking Drawer was officially launched at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS). And the rest is history.
Docking Drawer outlets received an overwhelmingly positive response when launched at KBIS in 2014. Based on interest, the company quickly rounded out its in-drawer outlet offerings and successfully obtained its first patents. As word continued to spread, and our product offerings continued to grow, we developed our first online store and formed strategic relationships with distribution partnerships such as Hafele, EB Bradley, Hardware Hut and more.
Our outlets have come a long way from that first KBIS show back in 2014. Now in their 5th generation, our Blade Series outlets fit easily into all standard cabinet layouts, making them simple to install into drawers of every type using only basic tools. Docking Drawer outlets have become standard in remodel and new construction projects, landing in kitchens, bathrooms, offices, entryways, closets, nightstands and numerous other applications in both residential and commercial spaces.
We continue to expand into new markets, offering smart outlet solutions not only to the US & Canada but to Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Europe and beyond.
As the founder, President, and inventor of in-drawer outlets, Scott leads the company and pushes Docking Drawer forward with continued innovation and product development and is the resident electrical safety expert.

Docking Drawer stands with the people of Ukraine. We strongly condemn the violence in Ukraine and support an immediate cessation of all hostilities. We are donating a total of $10,000, split equally between the apolitical charities listed below, all of which directly help the citizens of Ukraine. As with all conflicts, civilians (especially children) pay a considerable price, and Ukraine will need assistance to help its victims and rebuild their infrastructure once the violence ceases. We ask that anyone reading this please consider donating to these organizations or to any carefully vetted charity working to support the Ukrainian people through this tragedy.
