Merillat Kitchen Cabinets
Merillat Cabinetry is not just cabinets. First and foremost, it’s people. The people who create. The people who design. The people who have it in their homes. Merillat brings their talents, ideas, and passions. Based in Michigan, and part of Masco Cabinetry, Merillat has been providing quality cabinetry since 1946. With manufacturing plants located throughout the United States, Merillat has grown to become one of the nation’s largest cabinet manufacturers.
Merillat offers the best selection of stylish, quality products at a variety of price levels, and all Merillat cabinetry carries the seal of the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) Certification Program, which assures that Merillat cabinets meet or exceed the rigorous standards set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Our cabinets are also independently tested to ANSI/KCMA A161.1-2000 and paragraph 611-1.1, “HUD Minimum Property Standards-Housing 4910.1” 9-8-86.
Merillat cabinetry demonstrates its commitment to environmental sustainability through meeting or exceeding the requirements as outlined in the Environmental Stewardship Program certification, administered by the KCMA.
All Merillat facilities have also obtained ISO 14001 certificate of approval, demonstrating their commitment to reducing the impact of operations on the environment.
Merillat And The Buy American Act
In 1946, Orville and Ruth Merillat built the first Merillat cabinets in their 2400-square-foot workshop in Adrian, Michigan. More than 65 years later, Merillat—now part of Masco Cabinetry—is still based in Michigan, with manufacturing plants throughout the United States.
This commitment to home-grown quality is why Merillat is proud to acknowledge that our current product offering satisfies the “Buy American” requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The Buy American Act is the major domestic preference statute governing procurement by the federal government. Essentially it attempts to protect domestic labor by providing a preference for American goods in government purchases.
Enacted in 1933, the Buy American Act has only been substantively amended four times. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“The Stimulus Plan”) did not amend the Buy American Act but it did include a provision designed to protect American workers by saving and creating jobs.
In the spirit of the Buy American Act, and true to the hard-working ethic of our company founders, Merillat is proud to carry on the tradition of American craftsmanship.
