A Leader in the wood industry...

Klise frequently pioneers trends for carved and decorative products.  The company also developed ColumnTrack, a unique modular column system.  The Klise factory features machines that join time-honored wood carving techniques and advanced technology – a combination that supports custom designs for limited edition pieces, as well as efficient large production runs.

Drawing from its vast collection of patterns, Klise is able to reproduce designs in many types of wood, resulting in distinctive products that reflect the company’s legacy of woodworking artisanship.  Klise also creates custom patterns for customers who require a specialized design.

In 2008, Klise acquired a unique custom metalwork fabricating company, whom we've collaborated with for the past 40 years. Consolidating the production facilities for both wood and metalwork at Klise's current location was a decision that proved to be of great value. The metalwork artisans continue to produce custom hand-crafted metalwork for unique residential, commercial, and hospitality design projects.

 
 

it all started in 1910...

In 1910, John Klise combined several small carving shops in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to create the largest manufacturer of carved wood mouldings in the United States. The business, Klise Manufacturing Company, began by providing wood components for furniture and quickly expanded into other market areas including pianos, architectural goods, ocean liners, and caskets.

With over a century of experience, Klise continues to be a resource to design-build firms, kitchen cabinet manufacturers, high-end furniture companies and architectural millwork shops.

In the mid 1950's, life-long employee James C. Veen assumed ownership of Klise Manufacturing, and is currently run by the third generation of the Veen family.

 
We found that Klise has a nice variety of beautiful moldings that we couldn’t find elsewhere. We received the shipment on the date they promised that they would be able to ship it. So, Great product and very prompt shipping! Thanks Klise Design team and Manufacturing.

As an architecture firm specifying Klise decorative mesh for HVAC venting grills and radiator shrouds, we found their support staff very helpful in tailoring their products to the project needs. The Klise decorative meshes are of high quality and are quite distinctive in appearance.
