Howard Miller founded the company back in 1926, at the age of 21. Since then Howard Miller clocks have featured incomparable workmanship. A quest for perfection is evident in the beautiful lines of Wall Clocks, gorgeous Mantle Clocks and true family heirloom Grandfather Clocks. Unsurpassed quality, Curio Cabinets and Collectors Cabinets.
Even then, Howard Miller understood the need to create products that would be steeped in quality and value. He expected nothing less than the best. And it was only under those strict conditions that he allowed his name to grace every clock manufactured at our sprawling facility in Zeeland, Michigan.
Howard Miller was schooled in the fine art of clock making by his father, Herman, in the Black Forest region of Germany. Howard developed into a visionary whose keen sense of innovation spawned a tradition of excellence that has been uncompromising through three generations.
While the early years Howard Miller focused on the manufacture of chiming wall clocks and mantel clocks, Howard Miller also produced trend-setting avant-garde clocks that stand today in collectors’ galleries. During World War II, Howard Miller joined forces with the Ford Motor Co. to produce anti-aircraft covers. In the 1960s, the company turned its attention to grandfather clocks, eventually earning the company the title of “World’s Largest Grandfather Clock Manufacturer.”
In 1989, Howard Miller began creating collectors cabinets with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship inherent in their clock making. Fashioned from glass and hardwoods, the cabinets are ideal for displaying heirlooms, plates, glassware and other collectibles.
As part of the company’s continuing effort to bring customers only the best in handcrafted products, Howard Miller recently acquired three companies. The Hekman Furniture Company produces a strong cadre of carefully sculpted hardwood pieces that range from 18th , to contemporary products. The Woodmark Company makes fine upholstered pieces. And the exquisite movement in many clocks we offer is made by Old World craftsmen employed by the Kieninger Company of Germany.
While Howard Miller products might once have been primarily considered as gifts for weddings, anniversaries and retirements. The company’s expanded line of offerings is enticing more and more buyers who simply desire quality timepieces and furniture in their homes and businesses — no occasion required.
The legacy left by Howard C. Miller isn’t an easy one to emulate. But it’s the only way we know of doing business. Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection.
