Featured Project


Brothers Bill and Herb Miller started a basement digging company in 1947. With just two trucks and an endloader, they were hired as subcontractors throughout subdivisions in East Moline, Illinois. In just five short years, their business had grown and their fleet included four trucks, a second endloader and an impressive collection of heavy equipment for that time.

In 1968, the second generation of Millers took over the business. Brothers Jeral and Joel worked together and continued to expand business operations. By 1975, Jeral was the sole owner. Busy with work and with raising their three sons, Jeral and Carol Miller were devoted to running the family business.

The couple's oldest son, Jarrod, started with the company in 1985 and Justin followed four years later. Their brother, Jason, has business endeavors outside of the family business.

Today, the business is more focused on commercial, municipal and industrial projects, with an emphasis on environmental impact. Jarrod and Justin run Miller Trucking and Excavating, while their father takes a less active role in the daily operations.

 "I have worked with two generations of the Miller family and know first-hand they do quality work without fail. Jerrol Miller has instilled high work standards for the ‘boys' and a strong loyalty to this community. Typically, when a project is done, we as community leaders are left with nuisance construction related complaints.  What sets MTE apart from other contractors is the attention to detail where they consistently go above and beyond expectations to satisfy those affected.  We are privileged to have a quality contractor like MTE in this community."
