Larry H. Miller Group Acquires Proffitt’s Cruisers


Company to expand to Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah


SALT LAKE CITY (October __, 2010) – CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, Greg Miller, announced today that the company has acquired Proffitt’s Cruisers of Austin, Colorado. Proffitt’s Cruisers has been restoring and building custom Toyota Land Cruisers for over 12 years. The LHM Group plans to continue operations in Austin, Colorado, and will open a new headquarters facility at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.


“Land Cruisers have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.” said Miller. “I have enjoyed my relationship with Jeremiah Proffitt as a friend and fellow Cruiser enthusiast. Having had Proffitt’s build and modify several of my personal Land Cruisers I am familiar with the premium quality of their work as well as their excellent customer service. I am excited to welcome Proffitt’s Cruisers to the Miller family of businesses.”


The company plans to expand the operation by offering a wide array of products and services including OEM, aftermarket, and custom parts. They will also manufacture custom parts such as suspension components, bumpers and conversion kits, and make them available for retail customers. Many other exciting ideas are in the works.


“When Greg Miller approached me about joining forces, I knew it would only result in success,” said Jeremiah Proffitt. “I am excited for the opportunity to be a part of a legendary group of companies with both a long history and future in the automotive industry. Furthermore, I am looking forward to developing our new location at Miller Motorsports Park, a truly a world class facility for both on- and off-road racing.”


The Utah location is scheduled to be operational in early December, 2010. For more information on Proffitt’s Cruisers, please visit http://www.proffittscruisers.com.

Millers are good people, and that is coming from several of their employees that have been there for 15+ years. Assuming they let them continue operating as they did before, it will most likely only enhance their products and services they can offer.

Good for them

Interesting stuff. I hope this means that we'll soon be able to go online and order some Proffitt's products for our 40s.
