Miller Electric 100 Years of ServiceMore than 100 years ago, our founder, Henry Miller, taught us to listen to the customer, that value is priceless, and that in the end, all you have is your name. Customers regularly remind us of whether or not we are delivering on these values and I’m proud to say that, because of the tenor of our employees, most customer comments reveal that we consistently deliver value head and shoulders above our competition.

One of the ways we deliver value is through innovation; from positioning ourselves on the leading edge of emerging technologies to building an in-house prefab shop to dreaming up new ways of delivering custom commercial services to sharing world class safety training with the Omaha community, Miller Electric employees are constantly thinking of how we can delight customers with quality, convenience and insight.

It’s the character of the people working for Miller Electric and the quality of our customers that give us staying power and that will guide us into another 100 years of excellence.
