The Miller Connection
Dennis Frandsen, owner of Miller Manufacturing and CEO and Chairman of the Board of the Frandsen Corporation, developed his passion for dirt-track racing as a young man in the early 1950s. He and a group of other young enthusiasts bought old pre-World War II automobiles—1930s vintage—and tore them apart and made them into race cars. They raced at small-town speedways throughout east-central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.
Dennis became a local champion with his 1934 five-window Ford coupe with a flathead V-8 engine. Dennis never lost that love for dirt-track racing and became a fan of World of Outlaws spring-car racing. In 2015, Dennis learned of an opportunity to purchase one of Schatz’s retired sprint cars, and in turn got to know Donny Schatz. Dennis and his wife, Jeanette, donated the retired car to a private auto museum in Palm Desert, California. Today, Dennis continues his love of dirt-track racing by sponsoring Donny Schatz’s Ford F -150 highlighting the Little Giant® brand for the July 9 race in Knoxville, Iowa.
“We are so excited to partner with Donny Schatz and David Gilliland Racing for our first NASCAR experience,” said Frandsen. “Miller Manufacturing continues to expand its US based manufacturing to support its hard-working customers in the farm, pet, and ranch markets. Donny’s Midwestern roots embody the values of our customers and our team at Miller Manufacturing. We look forward to cheering him on at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event on July 8-9 in Knoxville, Iowa.”
In 2021, Miller Manufacturing proudly celebrates 80 years of US based manufacturing. In 1941, the Little Giant® brand of Poultry products were launched and today we continue to help backyard hobbyists, homesteaders, and hobby farmers take pride in their hard work. Never has the need for these products been stronger, and Miller Manufacturing is so grateful to be adding more US-based jobs to support our farm community of Glencoe, Minnesota and the surrounding McLeod County area. We are hoping to end this year with nearly 450 US jobs, up significantly from last year.
With people spending more time at home, Miller’s products for farmers, ranchers, and backyard hobbyists are helping people provide for themselves and their families. Miller products enable people to raise chickens, feed and water farm animals, take care of their pets, and participate in beekeeping. Please help us support this effort and BUY AMERICAN!!!!!
