Our History

Merit was founded in 1966 as a garage machine and tool and die shop by a group of five partners.  The combination of the beginning letter of each of their last names resulted in MERIT – thus the namesake for the company. The business was moved to its present location and expanded from 3,500 sq. feet to 25,000 sq. feet while also dramatically increasing the number of employees.
