Celebrating Manufacturing Month

October is Manufacturing Month, highlighting what modern manufacturing is all about. We are proud to be a part of an industry that is rapidly changing the world and continuously employing more Americans. In 1941, Barney Miller created a revolutionary way to provide water for his chickens by developing the Little Giant® Poultry Fountain.

We have continued to grow not only through acquiring more brands, but by expanding our locations and employing more people. In 2022, Miller has expanded its manufacturing base in Minnesota with the integration of the former Lakeland Tool and Engineering Inc. based in Anoka, MN. Lakeland was previously acquired by Miller’s parent company, Frandsen Corporation, in April of 2019. The Anoka facility has expanded the manufacturing capabilities by adding injection molding capabilities to the organization and a 187,000 square feet manufacturing facility.

Today, if you stop by one of our Minnesota facilities, you will see a variety of American-made products being produced and prepared for shipment all across the country. Since launching our Buy American movement, Miller Manufacturing is celebrating bringing back more than 100 foreign made products to be manufactured in the USA. As we continue growing, we encourage you to check out our career opportunities and learn more about working in manufacturing. It’s hard work worth doing!
