RUVO has roots dating back to 1947, when company founder Rudolph "Rudy" Volkmer began manufacturing machinery in a small shop in Long Island, NY. RUVO was purchased by Merrick Machine Co. in 1990.
Since then, Merrick Machine Co. has refined and expanded the RUVO machine product line for door and millwork shops. As a result, RUVO Door Machines have become an integral part of the industry throughout the world. RUVO stands as the perfect complement to Merrick's Triad Machines product line of wall-panel, sub-component, window and stair manufacturing equipment.
Merrick Machine Co. was originally founded by Jim Merrick in 1961. It was established to manufacture a new line of highly automated and specialized machinery for home builders. Now over 50 years later, with RUVO Door Machines and Triad Machines, Merrick Machine Co. continues to be a leader in the industry.
