About A.T. Merhaut, Inc
Our family's story of our family store.
Albert Thomas Merhaut, founder of A.T. Merhaut, Inc. was born in Pittsburgh, PA in 1927. After 1.5 years in the Monastery, in 1959, Mr. Merhaut began his career in church supplies as a salesman for Templegate in downtown Pittsburgh. Ten years later, Mr. Merhaut bought Templegate and renamed it A.T.Merhaut Church Books & Supplies. Since then, the company has continued to grow and in 2007 it came to its current on Route 8 in Allison Park, PA.
Through the years, Mr. Merhaut raised 9 children with his wife Joann. Today they are both enjoying retirement and other ministry opportunities at their parish. Following in their father's footsteps, 4 of their children: Tom, John, Matt, and Theresa can all be seen fulfilling the work their father started nearly 50 years ago. Several of Mr. Merhaut's grandchildren also work part time in the store throughout the year.
A.T. Merhaut, Inc. has grown to become more than just a church book and supply company. While still serving the Diocese of Pittsburgh, A.T. Merhaut, Inc. has now expanded and is serving the Mid-Atlantic Region and starting new areas in the south. The company now offers a wide array of services going beyond just selling new items. Metal refinishing, custom statuary, stained glass, statue refinishing, and handling consignment items from closing churches are among the popular services used.
A.T. Merhaut, Inc. is also the leader in Catholic gifts in the area. With a constantly evolving selection of products from simple gifts like rosaries, jewelry, and prayer books to indoor and outdoor statues, nativities figures and stables/buildings, sacramental gifts for Baptisms, Weddings, Confirmations, and First Communions, and many, many more.
