Phoenix Dynamometer Systems LLC
Sometimes, a company leads its particular industry because it has a long legacy of products and technology that reaches back decades. In some cases, however, a company’s willingness to go back to the drawing board and start over completely from scratch is what gives it the edge over its competitors.
That’s the story of Phoenix Dynamometer Systems LLC, a Wisconsin-based design-build manufacturer of dynamometer systems used in chassis and engine applications for a variety of vehicles. As Vice President Drake Miller II explains, being able to look at its customers’ needs through a completely fresh set of eyes has been the key to the company’s success.
Miller and the other principals spent years working for a competing dynamometer manufacturer before a round of major changes made it clear that the company would no longer be in a good position for the future. It was shortly after that in 2008 that Miller and several of his co-workers left to found Phoenix Dynamometer.
