The Cheviot Corporation was founded in 1960 by two classmates from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Within a few years, Cheviot had emerged as one of the leading acoustical ceiling contractors in New England. In the seventies, seeking to broaden the company’s scope, Cheviot entered the aluminum replacement window business. As the years progressed, the replacement window business expanded to include curtainwall, glass and glazing, metal panels and historical restoration.
Today Cheviot prides itself in being one of the prominent contractors in the curtainwall, glass and glazing, metal panel, aluminum window, historical restoration, acoustical ceiling, acoustical wall panel, and access floor sectors of the industry.
