Charles (Chuck) P. Miller, owner of Miller Formless Company, Inc. (McHenry, IL) is pleased to announce a change in ownership effective October 1, 2015.  Chuck Miller, who founded Miller Formless Co., Inc. in 1970, has sold the company to a group of individuals with long ties to the Miller family that plan on continuing the Miller Formless name and legacy long into the future.

The new ownership team is led by Scott Smith, John Smith and Tom Uutala.  The three bring a significant amount of expertise in the fields of engineering, construction, and finance to the company, and will rely on the current employees and management team at Miller Formless to continue to provide quality service, slipform machines and other products to the construction industry.

Scott Smith will lead the organization as CEO and will focus on growing the Miller Formless name and legacy long into the future.  “I am extremely humbled and grateful to Chuck and his employees for welcoming us into his family,” stated Scott Smith.  “Chuck is a pioneer in the field of slipforming, but more significantly, he knew it was important to build a quality business through his employees.  His dedication to them and their efforts in building Miller Formless machines have made Miller Formless a great company and I am thrilled that they’ve welcomed me, John, and Tom into their family.”

Chuck Miller will remain President and continue to be a close advisor to the new owners.  “When I was looking for an opportunity to preserve the Miller Formless legacy for another generation,” said Chuck, “I wanted to make sure that whoever I brought in would protect the heart of this company – its employees.  Luckily, the best opportunity was a long-time friend of our family, had strong ties to McHenry and Illinois, and shares the same philosophies and values in business and life as I do.  Miller Formless is in good hands.”
