When the German-based company Prufrex Innovative Power Products GmbH approached The Miller Group about opening a first-rate manufacturing headquarters in the United States, The Miller Group took up the challenge, locating and developing the two-acre site off of London Bridge Road; as well as constructing, leasing and managing the production facility. Prufrex USA Inc. is a privately owned German manufacturer of digital ignition and electronic control systems, headquartered in Cadolzburg, Germany and will supply ignition components to Stihl and other U.S. customers. The construction and property management arm of The Miller Group, is the powerhouse behind the build-to-suit project. The project included site selection and development, construction and lease/management of the facility. This is The Miller Group’s second turn-key project with a European manufacturer. Previously, the Miller Group completed a 112,000-square-foot industrial facility on 7.2 acres for German manufacturer IMS: Gear. The company makes assemblies for automatic automotive seats and had outgrown another 34,000-square-foot building in Virginia Beach.
The Project was awesome because...
"We can always count on The Miller Group as one of our true partners. Not only was the construction and release of our building successfully completed within the planned schedule of five months, but we constantly received daily communication and frequent progress reports from The Miller Group regarding the project."
Kurt Muller, President & CEO of Prufrex
