The burmeister story

Burmeister Woodwork has roots in the early 1920s, when Marvin Burmeister fulfilled a dream of opening his own cabinet company called Advance Millwork.  In 1937, the company name was changed to Burmeister Woodwork.

When World War II began, Burmeister shifted its production to support the war effort, manufacturing thousands of toolboxes, primarily for the Howitzer.  After the war, Burmeister turned its focus back to the quickly expanding housing market and was well-positioned to support the building boom of the 1950s and '60s.

In 1964, George Burmeister took the reins from his Uncle Marvin and added stairs to its list of expanding millwork capabilities. In 1981, George’s son Russell Burmeister, succeeded his father and enhanced Burmeister’s focus on high-end, custom architectural millwork.

In 2015, John Sprenger purchased the Company from the Burmeister family.  John’s strong work ethic, attention to detail, and extensive management experience have improved operating procedures while maintaining the Company’s commitment to the highest level of product.
