MillRiver Custom Door & Window
MillRiver is New England's premier full service millwork supplier, and the North Shore area
of Boston, Massachusetts is our home. Since our inception in 1985 our focus has been the customer. Over the years
the company has been a high end window supplier and even had a small hardwood lumber operation with a hardware
store associated with it, providing custom millwork in addition to retail sales. Over the years the company's
business focus shifted more to custom millwork, and by 1996 was totally dedicated to it.
With the sale of the company to the new owners in 2002, the company further solidified its production operations
and marketing efforts to focus exclusively on custom millwork. The new company also started expanding its market area
and production ability beyond the residential into the commercial and institutional construction sectors. MillRiver has also established very valuable and important ties with area business and leading wood industry
associations in New England and internationally.
To make the best products for our customers, we need the best and most effective tools and plant. Building on the
existing infrastructure, floor and office space was increased, and many old or small machines were replaced or upgraded. A new variable radius
shaper-moulder, vacu-form gluing system, pneumatic clamping system, and integrated digital machine setting readouts
were installed. In a major tooling and capacity upgrade, a 3 axis CNC Router and a SCMI five head moulder was installed along with a cooresponding
high volume dust collection system. The entire shop production flow was streamlined and a separate assembly shipping area was created. On
the computer systems front, CAD design, drafting, and large scale commercial plotting systems were implemented, and
this new website was created and deployed. Finally, in order to more efficiently run the company, an internal IP
and WI-FI network, broadband internet access, and networked job tracking and financial management systems were put in place.
In our shop we may reproduce the beautiful things that were created in the past, but we now do it with the help of
the best current processes and technology.
We feel that MillRiver is very well poised for our future and the expanding custom millwork and
historic reproduction marketplace. Every change and improvement that we have made is to make the company's processes
more efficient so that we can better serve our broad range of great customers. We cover the areas from design to
installation, because that is our product's lifecycle. We are usually involved in each major step along the way to
ensure that every project gets the specific attention it requires for a successful end result. Day in and day out we
dedicate our company to bring the highest level of quality and professionalism to our customers.
We are proud and honored to be a part of our wood products industry, which has a particularly historic past here
in New England, and we welcome any questions or comments that you might have concerning our company, products or services.
