His prior employment duties included regional maintenance engineer for Body Cote Thermal Processing and prior to that, maintenance supervisor for Hitech Metallurgical, both located in the Southern California region.

Derek Dennis, SACA President states: “We are very fortunate to have somebody with Chuck’s in-depth knowledge and experience on the SACA Team.  I’m looking forward to working with Chuck in facility engineering and start up, along with the continuing day to day operations of the heat treating plant.”

Miller's first assignment will be the installation of Solar’s support equipment and installation of Solar’s first (3) furnaces to include the west coast’s largest commercial vacuum furnace, at 24’, with a double car bottom loading system.  All furnaces are engineered and manufactured by Solar Atmospheres sister company, Solar Manufacturing of Souderton, PA.
