Americo Manufacturing Company regretfully reports that John Miller, former Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, passed away on August 9, 2023.

John spent the last 13 years of his 48-year career in the industrial cleaning supplies industry at Americo, retiring in 2019 with the congratulations of all who knew him. Colleagues and friends will remember John as a larger-than-life personality who brought a sense of passion and excellence to everything he did.

“We’re deeply saddened by the passing of John, a man who meant so much to so many. He placed great value on the relationships he developed over his career, and he gave Americo and our industry decades of valued service,” says Americo’s VP of Commercial Sales, Rusty Heinsman. “We knew John as a leader, innovator, coach, mentor, and most importantly, friend. He will be missed."
