Steve Miller

Born and raised in St. Cloud MN, Steve is the president and master electrician of Mill City Electric Co. Out of high school, Steve knew he wanted to be an electrician. Always tinkering with a scrap stereo or trying to make his battery-powered cars ride just a little faster, it seemed like a good fit. Plus, he's like 8ft tall. Steve attended St. Cloud Technical College for his degree in Electrical Construction Technology and graduated in 2005. Shortly after moving to Minneapolis, Steve met his future sidekicks Brendt and Monte. Steve enjoys the ups and downs of owning a small business, and considers himself very lucky to have his Mill City team by his side. He lives across the pond from his brother in Burnsville with his pooch, Lexi.

Brendt Nelson

The sign doesn't lie. Brendt's favorite activity is smiling. Brendt and Steve worked together as apprentice electricians in the past. Years later, they reunited to work together again at Mill City Electric. Brendt lives in Pine City with his family and two dogs. Each day, he braves the daunting task of driving into the big city. Brendt is also a firefighter for the Pine City Fire Department. When he's not taming the high voltages, or saving the world from ferocious flames, Brendt enjoys hunting or relaxing in front of the TV with the occasional cold brew.
