Fuelled by passion and the desire to live the American Dream, Jon and Pat Mueller created "The Spacemakers" and worked out of the back of her father's warehouse in 1988. After several years of specializing in custom closet systems and garage cabinets, they had honed their skills and were ready for advanced projects like office systems, libraries, and kitchens. The Spacemakers quickly outgrew the warehouse and moved into their current location at 1941 E. 13th Street in 1992, and ultimately outgrew their name and transitioned to Mueller Manufacturing, Inc in 1999. Surviving two recessions and in the spirit of constant development, Jon and Pat are planning another expansion that would almost double their current 3700 square foot facility and can truly describe the services they are capable of providing as being Beyond Cabinets by Mueller.

Jon Mueller

As a son of architect William Mueller, Jon Mueller gained his design knowledge, expertise and the importance of attention to detail early while working on new home construction and various projects in Tucson, AZ. Later, while working on concrete form setting as a Union Sub-Journeyman Carpenter Jon's skills expanded again learning the fine art of engineering that is translated today into cabinetry that is solid and built to last. Tired of slinging a hammer for a living, Jon convinced a local closet company that he was the right person for a fabricator and installer position. Being the only shop worker, Jon taught himself each facet of the manufacturing and installation process, and currently manages his team and projects to make certain they understand the entire process as well.

Pat Mueller

Pat's father, Johnny King, owned and operated a retail carpet installation service in Tucson for over 50 years; she started learning bookkeeping at age 16 inside of the business. Pat's business management experience combined along with Jon's construction, design, and woodworking (and some fatherly advice to fall back on when needed) created the foundation that Mueller Manufacturing, Inc. is built on.

There are no doubt easier ways to earn a living, but it is what we do and we love it! Jon & Pat Mueller
