Fifty years ago, our company started as a small machine shop in Merrill, Michigan, where my dad ran the equipment, my mom kept the books and the whole family made deliveries of auto parts in the family station wagon.

We’ve grown since then — from a supplier to companies that are global leaders, to a company that leads the way. We’re known as the company that will tackle challenges others can’t handle: The company where anything is possible.

Now, we’ve gone through another evolution. We are now One MERRILL. We’ve brought all of our divisions under one umbrella, making us more efficient, more effective and even better able to support our customers’ needs in an increasingly competitive market. One MERRILL better reflects who we are as a team. Unified, integrated and stronger together.

That’s because for us, teamwork is more than just a concept. It is a foundation for our every day operations and it’s how we approach our decisions about responsibility and accountability. It determines how we interact with one another and our customers, suppliers and strategic partners.

Today, we stand poised for the next fifty years. Thank you for being part of it.

"MERRILL has given me the tools to achieve my career goals. Since joining MERRILL in 2012 as an assembler, I learned the skills needed to transition into the role of Shipping & Receiving Clerk. The shipping role allowed me to learn even more about MERRILL and its processes, leading me into an Inventory Management position. Today, I am able to implement my wealth of knowledge as a Project Manager."

Through my career, I have received the necessary training and certifications to evolve from an entry level NDT Technician to a Certified Professional Level III.

        "Throughout my 20 years with MERRILL, I have worked on some of the coolest projects in the industry, including large 160,000-pound offshore oil platforms, remote weapon systems for our nation’s Military and large scale mining equipment. To complete these projects, MERRILL has some of the most advanced equipment and machinery in the market today. The leadership at MERRILL is made up of people who have worked on the floor of each business unit. They realize that investing in machines and equipment is not only a necessity for efficiency in the workplace, but making MERRILL a better place to work.”

            “The most challenging part of being a machinist is the complexity of the jobs we do here. It’s always keeping you on your toes, but at the end of the day, you have a product you can look at, something that you made. And you’re proud of what you did. It’s a very fulfilling job.”

                    "The most challenging part in this industry because it is Aerospace/Defense is probably the tolerancing and the materials ... new age materials --- research and development on your own to create methods to grind the parts efficiently and bring them into print."

                      "Being a machinist is a unique trade and profession because not very often do you get to work on the big things we get to work on at MERRILL. I would recommend that you pursue your career in machining if you're good with numbers, you like to work with your hands and like to work with metal ... MERRILL's where to be for sure."
