Grover W. Miller, Founder

The late Grover Miller developed his first self-contained pumping unit in 1984 and improved on it continually until his death in September 2013. One of the major improvements to the leveling unit was Grover's development of the adjustable piston and screener in 1992. Grover's many innovations have provided a highly efficient and cost-effective method for leveling concrete slabs and solving most structural problems. A-1 is honored to carry on the legacy of Grover Miller.
