custom sawn into lumber.
“Merritt has a focused lean plan, we
run the business based on hours for all
work, all is billable and all is tracked
and reviewed,” said Michael Merritt.
“Merritt is in a custom business, it is
always different but we need to find
the common threads and improve.
“Automation is our strongest suit.
We must produce pieces and parts
quickly, effectively and accurately,
although the assembly, sanding and
finish is still an art and is mainly by
hand. We are strong schedulers and cli-
ent committed. It keeps the company
focused and on task.”
Merritt has a lot of experience in
creating the look of luxury. “Creating
more luxurious interiors in a residen-
tial space can be simple, whether it’s
the lighting and decor, or architecture
and design, there are various ways to
update a space to an inviting, comfort-
ing atmosphere,” Merritt said.
“Similar to statement walls, adding
a statement room can make an impact
to a home’s overall space. Finding a
few statement pieces can be one way of
creating such a space, but simply adding wooded panels, bookshelves and
crown moulding can provide that wow
factor you are looking for.
“Add a sense of warmth to your
home in an unexpected place, by add-
ing wood panels to your ceilings. In-
corporating elements of natural wood
creates an authentic and decorative
focal point for your living space,” Mer-
ritt said. “By using lighter color woods
and creating patterns, your room will
visually look larger.” ✚
