About Us

About Miller Engineering

I founded Miller Engineering in 1980 with a mission to provide mechanical engineering, human factors engineering, ergonomics, engineering product safety, consumer research, product testing, and expert forensic services.

Our areas of expertise also now include warnings and safety instructions, hazardous chemicals and waste disposal, hospital/biomedical engineering, and safety in agricultural and construction. All this is from an engineering perspective in line with the philosophy of Professors Miller and Lehto who are the principals within the company and also affiliated with University engineering departments.

The company is known to be very thorough in building, with our staff, the foundations necessary to support whatever reports, opinions or testimony might arise from the various projects. Such thoroughness of course does not make us the least expensive, but our success on behalf of manufacturers, distributors, retailers, insurance companies and injured plaintiffs provides the justification.

We would be happy to discuss a potential project with you (toll-free 888-206-4394). All initial consultations with us are, of course, complimentary. Or we can provide you paper or electronic copies of our corporate brochure and fee schedule via your email or telephone request.
