A long history of hard work and dedication has played an important role in the success of our business. Established in 1950 as W.S. Townsend, what was once a furniture store has evolved into the business it is today, operating under the name Michigan Kitchen Distributors. Being a family-owned and operated business, our focus has always been on offering customers the products they want from a company they can rely on.

We have deep roots when it comes to evaluating and meeting the needs of residents throughout Michigan, Northern Indiana, and Northern Ohio. Our understanding of the housing market and what makes kitchens truly great has made us a perfect partner for homeowners who are undergoing a kitchen remodel. We believe in offering an experience you won’t find anywhere else and, as a wholesale supplier, we can offer products you need at a price you can afford. Our mission is to be your one-stop-shop for your kitchen upgrade, and for you to feel confident that you are working with a company that cares more about your happiness than our bottom line.

To learn more about working with MKD, contact us today.

MKD is a third-generation wholesale distributor of kitchen and bath products, as well as one of the largest countertop fabricators, serving Michigan, Northern Indiana and Northern Ohio.

Incorporated 70 years ago, MKD was the second distributor for Merillat. Since then, MKD has continued to grow our product platform, and we’ve significantly expanded our warehouse space – actually tripling in size – to ensure our ability to consistently provide the products you need, when you need them.

Today, MKD has grown to over 180 associates, with 20 delivery trucks, and is proud to be considered the supplier of choice to our customers. We would appreciate the opportunity to earn your business and become your supplier of choice as well!


Our long history has played an important role in our success as a business.

Starting in 1950, W.S. Townsend, known today as MKD, started as a furniture store, then adding plumbing and cabinetry products, and finally transitioned to countertop fabrication as our primary product offering.

Today, MKD stands as one of few suppliers to have weathered the many storms the housing industry has thrown at us. We believe our deep roots and determination make MKD the perfect long-term partner for your ever-changing needs.


Like many family businesses, we struggle with work-life balance. Working with your father, brother, uncle and son can create unique and interesting challenges.

Fortunately, from the very start of the company, our family rule was and will always be: “work stays at work.”
