A Brief History of Our Company
Over 35 years ago, Michael McFarland began crafting custom cabinets in his mother's garage. He began with the simple motto "a good product for a good price."
In 1979, he incorporated and within a few short years, McFarland Cabinet Co., Inc. had established itself as one of the top cabinet makers in the greater Los Angeles area. The March 1989 issue of Los Angeles Magazine cited McFarland Cabinet Co., Inc. as "one of the best handymen in town and highly recommended by both professional craftsmen and satisfied customers." McFarland's cabinet work was also featured in various issues of the prestigious Architectural Digest. McFarland's designs were both elegant and innovative.
In 1988, McFarland expanded into door production. The quality of his door products afforded him a ready market and within two years, plans were made to sell the cabinet shop and focus full-time on door production.
In late 1990, McFarland pioneered a Lakeview, Oregon weed patch into a six acre industrial plant site. In January 1991, McFarland Cabinet Co., Inc. became McFarland Door Mfg. Co., Inc. and officially relocated to the Goose Lake Valley of Eastern Oregon. The fine craftsmanship and public recognition that made McFarland cabinets a household name now characterizes his door lines as well. The original 6,000 sq. ft. door plant with ten employees grew to 11,000 sq. ft. with 40 employees in just 2 1⁄2 years. In 2007, McFarland Door expanded even further and moved into a 40,000 sq. ft. building. The Lakeview, Oregon door plant is accessible to all major western trade cities. Spokane, Boise, Portland, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, Southern California, Reno and Carson City are all within one day's delivery.
Years later, in 2014, after Michael McFarland retired from the door business, McFarland Door was adopted by former employees Diane Keeney and Ramon Sanchez. After all, who better to run a company than those that have worked and understand virtually every position on the team? They combined their many years of experience and talents in the door industry and have continued the tradition of quality started by Michael. The company name was changed to McFarland Door & Millwork, LLC to reflect the old and highlight the new.
