UNION CITY, Ind., April 20, 2016 – Frank Miller Lumber, the premier provider of quartersawn red oak, white oak and other hardwood lumber, announces the launch of its new website,, which introduces the company’s new logo and corporate branding. The new website and brand presence is the latest expansion effort for the fourth-generation, family-owned lumber company, one of the largest quartersawn sawmills in the United States.

The website highlights Frank Miller Lumber’s state-of-the-art proprietary quartersawing process, available lumber species and specifications, a showroom of various hardwood applications, and the company’s dedication to sustainable forestry. A new feature on the site allows users to tour the century-old history of the Indiana company with a timeline and vintage gallery.

The process of sending out a customer-focused questionnaire to gain more information and better analyze the logo’s impact along with our new branding strategies was considered as well.
