The MIRO Story
MIRO's story dates all the way back to 1982 and is truly an example of the American dream. A young attorney named Mike Neider had a client who was unable to pay his legal fees, but who did own a patent for a mold which could be used to make a small plastic rooftop pipe support. Since Mike’s client was unable to pay his fees with money, he instead offered Mike full ownership of the mold and the patent in exchange for the legal services he had provided. That mold became the first MIRO support, which nowadays is known as the Model 1.5.
With the patent and mold in hand, Mike and his wife and partner Rosie started formulating a plan for their new business venture. The first step was giving their new company a name. They ultimately decided to combine their first names, Mike and Rosie, and thus the name MI-RO was born.
Over the next several years MIRO grew slowly and eventually Mike turned the management of the business over to his daughter Nicole to assist her with paying college tuition and living expenses. Nicole hired on her new husband Nate Sargent to assist her with managing and growing MIRO and had fun being Nate’s boss for a short period of time. During the early years the two of them worked together to fulfill and ship orders out of their garage. Nate eventually made the decision with four other partners to purchase the majority of the business from Mike and worked hard to expand the vision of what MIRO could become. Since taking over ownership, the product line has quadrupled, and sales have increased steadily year after year. Nate attributes the success of this company to the loyal and dedicated employees and to the service-minded attitude that accompanies their motto of “How can we support you?” which truly is the driving thought behind every interaction, every detail, and every purchase at MIRO Industries.
MIRO now employs over 60 people and is recognized all over the country as both the longest-standing and longest-lasting solution for rooftop support systems and offers an extremely wide variety of rooftop support products and services for all applications. Though the company has progressed and grown over the years MIRO’s commitment to customer service and satisfaction remains the same.
