Leading the way for the industry & elevating the kitchen and bath trade
The kitchen and bath industry continues to prosper largely due to the efforts of innovators who aren’t afraid to lead the way and chart their own course, whether through design, education, technology, showroom development, community service, new business models or specialty areas that evolve alongside today’s ever-changing consumers.
President of Morris Black, Bob Black, was awarded recognition as one of the kitchen and bath industry’s top 50 innovators by Kitchen & Bath Design News magazine, highlighted in the October 2017 issue.
Nominated by their peers and then carefully reviewed by the KBDN nominating committee, the 2017 Innovators reflect a true cross section of the industry. Along with 49 others, Bob Black was nominated and selected as one of the top innovators whose work, creative talents, business acumen and professionalism are currently leading the way for industry, elevating the kitchen and bath trade.
Bob Black has long recognized the value of fostering a corporate environment that encourages community service. Morris Black has set examples for community service through their involvement with various local organizations, and the family has upheld that tradition, along with the firm’s role as a trendsetter.
In 1976, Morris Black and Sons predicted the do -it-yourself trend by opening a free-standing home center to market building products directly to homeowners. In 1986, the company consolidated its operations in a facility located in Allentown, Pennsylvania. An architectural millwork department was created to supply the commercial and institutional markets, giving Morris Black the ability to manufacture its own custom casework. Today, Morris Black and Sons and Morris Black Designs are on the cutting edge of innovation, embracing current technology trends, like 3D augmented reality, to provide homeowners the opportunity to stand in their virtual kitchen.
