Howard C. Miller insisted on incomparable workmanship and unsurpassed quality he founded the company back in 1926, at the age of 21.
Even then, Howard Miller wanted to create products steeped in quality and value. Howard Miller expected nothing less than the best.
Howard Miller learned the fine art of clockmaking from his father, Herman, in the Black Forest region of Germany. He developed into a visionary whose keen sense of innovation spawned a tradition of excellence that has been uncompromised through three generations.
While the early years focused on the manufacture of chiming wall 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 they became the World’s Largest Grandfather Clock Manufacturer.
In 1989, the company began creating collectors cabinets with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship inherent in their clockmaking. 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. These pieces range from 18th and 19th Century reproductions, to contemporary products featuring fine metals and exotic woods.
- The Woodmark Company makes fine upholstered pieces.
- Old World craftsmen employed by the Kieninger Company of Germany make exquisite movement in many of their clocks.
The companies products might were once primarily gifts for weddings, anniversaries and retirements. However, now the Howard Miller’s expanded line of offerings is enticing more and more buyers who simply desire quality timepieces and furniture.
Howard Miller offer hundreds of items to complement any decor ranging from portable alarm clocks to desk sets to wall and mantel clocks to collectors cabinets to limited edition grandfather clocks. And in price ranges that may surprise you!
