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.
