The A.G. Miller Co., Springfield, Mass., marks its 100th year in business this year. Adolph G. Miller founded the company in 1914, with a large part of his business coming from the automobile industry. He secured contracts with the Springfield-based Rolls Royce Co. for production of fenders, hoods, and door panels.
In the 1950s, Miller’s son, Frederick W. Miller, began to expand the company to meet the demands of the industrial boom. This trend continued through the 1960s and 1970s when the company was the first sheet metal fabricator in the Northeast to obtain an NC turret punch press.
Today under the leadership of Rick Miller, grandson of Adolph, the company manufactures such products as computer control consoles, stainless steel tanks and hoods, machine bases, custom brackets and hardware, decorative architectural work, and enclosures for customers in the food, medical, computer, electronic, OEM, construction, and defense industries.
