Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinet Manufacturers

Emil Helmig came to the United States in the late 1920's — and like many at that time, envisioned starting his own cabinet manufacturers business and family legacy amidst the prosperity and freedom that America had to offer.

Cabinet Refacing

Emil began his legacy the Millbrae Cabinet Shop custom cabinet makers and cabinet designers in 1936, and remains one of the longest standing businesses in Millbrae, California. With just two employees under him, Emil started in an empty 1,000 square foot workshop where he and his staff specialized in millwork, mantels, and custom cabinetry

Kitchen Cabinet Design Shops

Emil retired in 1971 when he handed the business over to his 30-year-old son Bob. In the same vein, Bob then turned the custom cabinetry Millbrae Cabinet Shop over to his son Kevin and daughter-in-law Jennifer in December 2003. Without losing any of the rich tradition of two Helmig generations before, they opened a new cabinet design showroom and workshop in May of 2004. Today, the Helmig's and the staff at the Millbrae Cabinet Shop pride themselves on custom cabinet quality, service, and craftsmanship that began so long ago.
