Premier Millworks Co

Premier Millworks Co is a premier woodworking and architectural millwork shop that designs, fabricates and installs custom cabinetry, door, window and trim. They are located in Rockford, Illinois. Their employees have experience with commercial and residential work including kitchen projects, entertainment units, fireplace surrounds and more.

When Steve Spooner started his business Premier Millworks Co in 1980, it was a small operation with two other partners. Those days, they focused on residential woodworking. But as opportunities for commercial woodworking arose, they were ready to try their hand at it.

The team at Jackson Lumber & Millwork has grown in size and scope over the years, but they are still a family-owned company, headed up by Joe Torrisi and his son, Al. They serve the professional builders and project-minded homeowners of the Merrimack Valley, as well as northern New Hampshire.

Tom Raschka has over 25 years of experience in the custom millwork industry. He has held several positions, from being a woodworker and a custom fabricator to his current role as a General Manager. Tom has a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Technology and an Associate’s Degree from Essex Community College.

Kruschke’s crew at Premier has grown to 14 people, and they’ve stayed in business even through recessions that have forced other shops to close. The reason, they say, is that they enjoy what they do – and their customers appreciate it. “You get to create things – concrete, tangible things,” Kruschke says. He still wears a tape measure on his belt, and his desk is covered with sketches and drawings. “You can see the results of your efforts every day.”

M.L. Jenkins grew up on a farm in Sussex County and graduated from Cape Henlopen High School in 1979. He has over 25 years of local experience in the building supply industry, with ten years working for Nanticoke Homes overseeing their Purchasing Department and Kitchen and Cabinetry Design and 15 years at Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry.

Premier has a dedicated team that is dedicated to producing quality products. They also take pride in their commitment to give back to the community. Most recently, they have worked with CHIP of South Hampton Roads to build and deliver over 200 desks for children in our area who need them most. They plan to continue this program for the future with hopes of delivering many more. They are proud to be a sponsor of this very special charity.
