Company History



Mileham & King, Inc. was founded by William Mileham and Sylvan King. The company occupied a two-story building on 21st St. N.W. in Washington, DC fabricating venetian blinds and window shades. Its primary customers were home builders and apartment communities within the surrounding area. Operations continued in Washington, DC for many years until a fire occurred forcing them to relocate.


After the move, William Mileham retired and Sylvan King decided to sell his shares of the Company. The construction of the Washington Metro Subway System required Mileham & King, Inc. to move once again. Looking for advancement in a competitive industry they chose Rockville, MD, a more suburban location providing an assortment of customers and new opportunities. In addition to home builders and property management industry, Mileham & King, Inc. began selling to commercial buildings, decorators, and residential customers.

As we continued to grow we wanted our name to reflect what we did but we also the history of the name Mileham & King so we added the dba mkBLINDS to better reflect what we do.  So you will now hear us answer the phones as mkBLINDS but make no mistake we are still Mileham & King!  We also decided to expand our residential business as it was an undervalued asset for us.
