Merillat: America’s Cabinetmaker

Orville Merillat built the Merillat Cabinet Company from the ground up. During World War II he enlisted in the Coast Guard as a carpenter and saved almost all those earnings and  was used to start Merillat woodworking.  With help from his wife, Ruth, they started the company in the 1940’s with a drive and enthusiasm to build quality and affordable cabinets. Merillat continues too lead the industry with its “customer first” attitude. Below is a picture of his original kitchen from his personal home, proving that Merillat cabinets are durable and can withstand the test of time.
