MERRILL Celebrates 50 Years 

MERRILL Technologies Group (MERRILL) recently concluded its 50th year in business by implementing the final phase of its goal to become fully integrated. The final phase is a corporate naming and brand unification program. MERRILL Technologies Group will consolidate its four wholly-owned subsidiaries: Merrill Tool & Machine; Merrill Fabricators; Merrill Aviation & Defense; and Merrill Engineering & Integration, into a single operating company called MERRILL. 

The goal to become vertically integrated is the result of a five-year strategic plan the company started in 2015. Since then, MERRILL and its subsidiaries have undergone major changes by launching a corporate-wide advanced planning and execution center, investing in a new enterprise resource planning system and consolidating its legal and financial reporting. A total re-branding of the subsidiaries under the MERRILL primary brand is the final phase in becoming fully integrated. 

"This is one in a series of moves that will position our company for another 50 years of success," said MERRILL CEO, Robert Yackel. "We are committed to growth and the security that controlled growth brings to our customers and our team members. As we plan for our next half century in operation, it is critical that we make changes that support our vision of being a robust enterprise capable of sustaining growth." 

"MERRILL customers will realize improved on time delivery, quality and pricing as a result of these changes," said MERRILL Executive Vice President and COO, Jeff Yackel. "This realignment allows us to better utilize our available resources, in turn enabling us to better support our customers' schedules, technical and cost objectives." 

"We simply outgrew our previous business model," said MERRILL Director of Marketing and Communications Andrea Fisher. "MERRILL developed organically over the last 50 years into a collection of interrelated organizations. Each organization was created to serve a specialized need for production or to more effectively serve a specific industry. The result was four operational silos. What our customers want today is a vertically integrated, single supplier who can do it all - design, fab, machine and integrate. One MERRILL is that solution. As we work operationally to create a more integrated and collaborative experience for our customers, unifying the MERRILL brand will echo those benefits."
