How May Cabinet Company of New England, LLC Came to Be

May Cabinet Company of New England, LLC is a small, family-owned and operated business, organized in 2018 under parent company, Old New England Restoration, Inc., a historical preservation/restoration company established in 1999. The company has had a need for fine custom millwork, built-ins and cabinetry. Bill Hardiman, President of both companies, commands the highest quality of products and workmanship, particularly in woodworking. To say that Bill is a master carpenter would be an understatement. Like every other area of building, for which he has the highest standards, he opted for proficiency in custom woodworking, making a substantial commitment to it and moving the company headquarters to a considerably larger location.

There is much to be said about “word of mouth”, as requests for custom millwork and cabinetry became numerous once word got out about the level of craftsmanship being delivered. These requests have included non-historic Inquiries. Bill has always enjoyed design and building of all kinds, thus May Cabinet was organized and is dedicated to any/all styles of kitchens, bathrooms, cabinetry and millwork. May Cabinet is hopping, finding itself in houses private and public, old and new. While the two companies are distinctly separate, they co-exist in Hopedale, Massachusetts and are a great compliment to each other. Of course, as a veteran builder, Bill has an intimate understanding that a commitment to high quality, custom craftsmanship must be consistently honored throughout the life of the business. May Cabinet aims to exceed the expectations of it’s client’s unique visions for kitchens, bathrooms, cabinetry and mill work.
