THE HOWARD MILLER CLOCK COMPANY - Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection. It’s what Howard C. Miller insisted on when he founded the Howard Miller Clock Company in 1926, at the age of 21.Even then, Howard Miller understood the need to create clocks 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 clock maker and 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 earning the company the title of World's Largest Grandfather Clock Manufacturer. In 1989, the Howard Miller Clock Company 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, the Howard Miller Clock Company recently acquired three companies: The Hekman Furniture Company produces a strong cadre of carefully sculpted hardwood pieces that range from 18th and 19th Century reproductions, to contemporary products featuring fine metals and exotic woods. The Woodmark Company makes fine upholstered pieces. And the exquisite clock 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 Howard Miller Clock Company 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. No matter the price of the grandfather clock you purchase, you have the same assurance that Howard C. Miller provided when he began offering clocks more than 70 years ago: That quality be reflected both in the products they create, and in the people whose artistic talents they rely on to manufacture them. The legacy left by Howard C. Miller isn't an easy one to emulate. But it's the only way the Howard Miller Company knows of doing business. Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection.
