About Us

In the Beginning:

In 1976, Jim Miller left his job with a general contractor to co-found a construction company with a partner who has since left the business.

“We didn’t have a big, elaborate mission,” recalls Jim, who now serves as president of the company. “Our philosophy was simply to deliver the best work possible at a fair price, whether the job was big or small.”

The Growing Years:

In 1979, Jim Miller and his growing team acquired a barn in Cressona, Pennsylvania to convert it to a new home for Miller Bros. Construction, Inc.

As their reputation grew beyond Schuylkill County, so did the size of their projects. More staff was added. Within 20 years, the company portfolio included projects throughout Pennsylvania.

At the point where staff grew to more than 80, the 4,500 sf office had been stretched to the limit.

Miller HQIn 2002, the company purchased a building that once housed the Pennsylvania Anthracite Research Center, a state research facility.

Subsequently, after the state closed the research center, the building was used as a dormitory for the Schuylkill campus of the Pensylvania State University.

When it came into our hands we renovated it for use as our corporate headquarters.

Where We're Going:

Today Miller Bros Construction Inc. has dozens of projects in the works at any given time.

We established an affiliate organization, MBC Development LP, to handle the ever growing real estate development and leasing side of our business.

Miller HQ StaffEven as staff size grows beyond 100-plus, each member works as part of a cohesive team, a team widely recognized as one of Pennsylvania’s finest construction companies.

Miller Bros. Construction Inc. possesses an uncommon ability to handle large, high-profile construction projects, yet continues to conduct relatively minor renovations and repairs with the same diligence.

“Relationships with some of our biggest customers began years ago as small projects,” notes Jim. “We grew one job at a time and by recruiting the right persons to the team, one at a time.”
