Modeling the hands and feet of Jesus
The DYNA story
The year 1998 was a big year for two young Amish entrepreneurs. Twin brothers, Norman and Nathan Miller put their dreams and wallets to the test and built a brand new shop with a brand new name: DYNA Products. Today, that name has become known, not only throughout the country, but worldwide.
Several years prior to DYNA’s inception, the brothers manufactured specialty log furniture processing equipment in their father’s fence post business, mostly for their own use. However, it wasn’t long until orders poured in. As DYNA’s customer base developed, other markets were pursued including portable log bandmills.
With time, the mid-size firewood processor market called for a quality, value-driven machine. In 2009, DYNA Products stepped in and met that need. Today, DYNA has grown to be a market leader in the industry with well over 1500 processors manufactured. As this product line grew, DYNA sold the portable bandmill line and continued focusing on what they did best: building firewood processors.
The DYNA mission is to build a quality product for a fair price, backed by the best customer support, allowing the customer to reap greater profits in the firewood industry.
Our vision and mission are to bless God and those He placed in our care and those with whom we interact through the function of this business. We manufacture high-quality firewood processing equipment through a culture that integrates our core values to develop our employees, please our customers, and honor Jesus Christ. We will focus on providing our fellow team members, customers, and vendors a pleasant experience, going the second mile, and doing what is honorable and right.
We will build healthy relationships to enrich our community and to build up the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. We encourage our team to bless others through outreach efforts, whether in the local community or abroad. We will demonstrate a strong work ethic and accept personal responsibility for our shortcomings. We will strive to solve problems and remove obstacles as they arise. We will show our employees and vendors we care by valuing and respecting their roles and abilities and encouraging them to reach their goals consistently. Should team members eventually leave the company, we want them to be skilled, educated, spiritually empowered, and better equipped to work in whatever venture God leads them into
