Miller Felpax in Winona has announced that it has changed its brand name to Miller Ingenuity.
President and CEO Steve Blue says it's the first rebranding in the company's 60-year history.
The company is the inventor and manufacturer of innovative components for the railroad industry globally holding over 240 patents for rail components.
Blue said, in a press release, the company has spent a good deal of time over the last year and a half looking at its heritage and track record of conceptualizing and designing new products to support the railroad industry.
He said the name Miller Felpax has served the firm well and reflected early innovations of Rudy Miller the company's founder.
The brand change was announced to company employees first Thursday. It will be officially announced to the industry on August 15th.
