About Burlingame Cabinet Company

Emil Helmig came to the United States in the late 1920's — and like many at that time, envisioned starting his own cabinet manufacturers business and family legacy amidst the prosperity and freedom that America had to offer.


Emil began his legacy at a custom cabinet maker and cabinet designer in 1936, with just two other employees. Emil started in an empty 1,000 square foot workshop where he and his staff specialized in millwork, mantels, and custom cabinetry. Three Helmig generations later his company is still going strong!


Emil retired in 1971 when he handed the business over to his 30-year-old son Bob. In the same vein, Bob then turned the custom cabinetry shop over to his son Kevin and daughter-in-law Jennifer in December 2003. Without losing any of the rich tradition of two Helmig generations before, they opened a new cabinet design showroom and workshop in May of 2004. Today, the Helmig's and staff pride themselves on custom cabinet quality, service, and craftsmanship that began so long ago.
