Throughout the housing industry, Jim Merrick is considered one of the three pioneers in the invention of automated housing machine tools. Starting with the invention of the Window Frame Clamp back in 1960, Merrick Machine Company, under the Triad brand name, has gone on to develop wood wall panel framing, steel stud framing, fastening, sub-component, and stair equipment and machines.
Triad has produced more than 2,000 mahcines for housing, 90% of which are still in operation, quite literally hundreds of thousands of homes have been built with Triad machines.
Over 50 years down the road, Merrick Machine Company is under the direction of Jim's grandson, Russ Merrick who oversees six different companies: Merrick Machine Co., Triad Fastener, Triad Products Co., FuTek Tooling, and DP Plastics Wahoo.
