About Merritt Inc:

"Merritt" is founder William Carpenter's middle name. If you were to check the dictionary (under a slightly different spelling) you would find something like: "The quality of being particularly good or worthy, especially so as to deserve praise or reward."

William (or Bill as most folks know him) then decided on this word's double meaning as the name of his company. He named it this both because he felt he was capable of doing work that was worthy of praise, and "Carpenter Construction" also seemed a little redundant.
