“We stand behind our product and we service our customers for the lifetime of their cabinetry.” — Rob Boynton
Founded in 1965 by Rob Boynton, Midland is a family-owned, family-run custom cabinetry and millwork company dedicated to quality products and quality service. We design, build and install cabinetry, wall paneling, custom furniture and other custom woodwork, and we guarantee our products. Our expertise covers all cabinetry styling — contemporary, traditional and transitional. We also work with the finest reclaimed wood for clients who are seeking a sustainable design alternative.
Our singular focus is on creating the finest wood products, and we do so from both an engineering standpoint and through engagement with our customers: Midland listens to its clients, seeks solutions and, if they arise, solves problems. Being involved in the project and accessible throughout the process—before, during and after—is our only way of doing business.
We call our process “design development,” and it means just that: We can help homeowners develop their designs and create the plans that will make their vision come true. The process begins with a one-on-one conversation with Midland owner Rob Boynton. With more than 50 years of experience under his belt, Rob knows what will work and what won’t, from the standpoint of the materials, the labor and the costs. The point of design development is to let clients know, from the start, what to expect as the project evolves, stage by stage. Design development eliminates surprises and focuses on the prize: the end result.
We build our own products in a modern fabrication facility located within our San Carlos, CA, headquarters. That’s an important point, and it sets Midland apart. Few cabinet companies today do the crafting themselves; they send the jobs out. For us, contracting the work means relinquishing control of the final product, and it also means we miss out on what we love: making fine cabinetry. Midland has a staff of highly skilled craftsmen and a 23,000-square-foot shop outfitted with the best machinery and computerized equipment. An added bonus: clients can drop by to see their projects literally in the making.
Forget about searching for a reliable third-party to accomplish the important final stage of a job: installation. Unlike most cabinet makers, Midland installs its own work. Doing so simply makes sense: Who best to handle this important job than the people who made the product? Installing the work ourselves means clients are assured that the quality of the finished project meets our standards of perfection. It also means any pick up work encountered during installation will be handled quickly and, importantly, precisely. Consistency, continuity and time management are the bonuses of “doing it ourselves.”
