Miller Ingenuity

Rep. Steve Drazkowski, Sen. Matt Schmit, Miller Ingenuity President and CEO Steve Blue, Rep. Gene Pelowski, and U.S. Congressman Tim Walz were on hand for the opening of Miller Ingenuity's Creation Station.

Miller Ingenuity, manufacturer of innovative products for the transportation industry globally, officially opened its “Creation Station” in its Winona factory to the public on Oct. 22.

The state-of-the-art 1,200-square-foot collaborative space, which formerly housed manufacturing, is now an incubator for innovation where all members of the company are invited to come and think differently about ways to service the customer and the community. The Google-like campus within a factory is a first of its kind in Minnesota and for the U.S. manufacturing industry.

“Creation Station is a big investment in creativity and entrepreneurialism in manufacturing at a level where it needs a shot in the arm,” said Steve Blue, Miller Ingenuity President and CEO. “It’s truly a breakthrough moment for our company, the town of Winona, the region, and small and mid-sized manufacturers in this country.”

Creation Station offers a flexible workspace designed for both large and more intimate presentations, trainings and meetings. Creation Station will also be made available during off-business-hours for regional organizations and companies looking for a high-tech “think tank” space.
