About Miljoco and where we came from…
Mil-Jo-Co The name was derived from our founders’ middle names – Howard Millar Trerice and Brenda Josephine Trerice. Howard M. Trerice was the former executive Vice President at the H.O. Trerice Co. and after a successful career created Miljoco Corporation that was incorporated in 1979 as a domestic manufacturer of temperature and pressure instruments.
Our company consists of multiple generations of experienced personnel in the design, manufacture, and distribution of instrumentation. From humble beginnings, we quickly became one of the largest manufacturers of NSF® listed vapor-actuated dial thermometers supplying the commercial foodservice industry. Miljoco also enjoys years of experience in the manufacture of commercial HVAC and industrial instrumentation, including Industrial Thermometers, Contractor’s Gauges, Bimetallic Thermometers, Tridicators, Diaphragm Gauges, and many accessories, including thermowells, syphons, snubbers and diaphragm protection seals. These, and other quality Miljoco products, are provided to equipment manufacturers, mechanical contractors, maintenance personnel, and other industry professionals through our distribution network that services countries around the globe.
