About Our Company

Southwest Millworks, Inc. originally began operations in 1983 as Southwest Construction & Millwork, which served the San Diego county area as a commercial tenant improvement general contractor as well as a finish carpentry subcontractor.

During the early 1990’s our portfolio began to shift from primarily operating as a general contractor to becoming a full time interior architectural millwork subcontractor.

The majority of contracts completed at that time were for the hotel and restaurant industry. Our major clients included Soup Plantation, The Hunter, California Pizza Kitchen, El Fornaio and Rubios restaurants.

By the end of the decade, San Diego was home to a rapidly growing biotech industry and we became a leader in laboratory casework fabrication serving clients such as Amylin Pharmaceutical, Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inova Diagnostics, Vical Research Labs, Sequenom, Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla Institute and UCSD Medical Center.

In the year 2000 Southwest Construction & Millwork elected to redirect it’s primary focus towards casework fabrication which lead to the incorporation of our new company name, Southwest Millworks, Inc..
Today Southwest Millworks, Inc. serves a wide variety of clients including biotech, retail, medical and commercial tenant improvements.

We are a service oriented company and have earned a solid reputation for on time delivery. The quality of our materials workmanship meets and exceeds the strict guidelines of the Woodwork Institute of California and the American Woodwork Institute.
