When South Shore Millwork started back in 1991 it started by manufacturing wooden doors and frames for commercial projects. The company grew quickly and became one of the leading architectural millwork companies in the New England area. As a fabricator of high end architectural millwork, the clientele would often ask if South Shore Millwork could provide and coordinate the wooden fire rated doors for their projects. This required outsourcing the wooden fire rated doors to a company that was a certified manufacture of fire rated doors.
As South Shore Millwork got more and more of these requests for Fire Rated Door projects, they realized their customers wanted the same quality and service they have grown to expect from South Shore Millwork. There were very few companies out there who build wood fire rated doors and frames to this quality level. The quality standards fell well short of what South Shore Millwork needed. Not only could the companies not achieve the fire rating capabilities required, but there were also other problems such as late deliveries, wrong sizes, wrong machining, inferior craftsmanship, damages from shipping, etc.
So in 2010 South Shore Millwork decided to invest the time and money and go through the difficult process of becoming a certified manufacturer of wooden fire rated doors and frames. The goal was to make sure that they could provide their clients with the same high quality constructed doors and frames that they had grown accustomed to, fire rated or not. This also meant that the consistency and quality of all the doors on the project would be the same.
Fast forward to 2018 and South Shore Millwork is now one of the leading manufacturers of wooden fire rated doors and frames. And they have applied their same dedication to craft and quality to those doors.
