William F. Miller & Associates announced a new partnership with Thomas G. Faria Corp.

The addition of Faria to the group of factories that William F. Miller & Associates represents fills a void in its instrument and gauge product category, the company said.

“I had the opportunity to visit Faria's historically beautiful ISO9001-certified factory. Faria has in-house capabilities far ahead of the industry and capacity to grow their market share. We are so delighted to partner with this esteemed supplier,” William F. Miller & Associates president and owner Joe Miller said in a statement.

The Miller firm has been a manufacturer’s representative agency for more than 54 years. Its sales territory encompasses the greater South and Midwest.

Faria has made gauges and instruments for more than 50 years in Uncasville, Conn.
