Chief Executive Officer and President of CEM

Mike Miller has been developing wrought iron designs and fabricating different pieces on and off for 16+ years. He is passionate to incorporate his artistic side for metal design and is motivated to get his hands dirty to provide the best metalwork to match or exceed the customers’ satisfaction. Over the years, his friends have nicknamed him "Iron Mike" for obvious reasons. Born and raised on a lake in Minnesota, Mike loves the trees and water that the state can offer. "Duluth/Superior is such a beautiful place to live and it is my home. My whole family is up here. I'm lucky to have the opportunity to grow up here with all the great people of Minnesota and Wisconsin." says Mike.

The Company

We are a custom metalworking company that builds the best architectural elements money can buy. We take a lot of pride in our work and it shows through our finished projects and customer feedback. We follow a stringent Quality Control (QC) process to ensure that the customers will get the absolute best work from us. We proudly carry our name from dimension planning to processing metalwork and shipping projects.
Our work can be seen in numerous places across the US which makes us proud of who we are and what we have achieved as a company. The return business and compliments come streaming in on a regular basis (really, check them out on our site!) and it fuels us to work in our best effort. We sincerely want to thank our customers for giving us the opportunity to build for them and their projects. We are deeply proud seeing the photos sent to us by our customers showing how our efforts demonstrated high quality by supporting the projects that they have envisioned and planned for months or even years. When you are sitting under a pergola you built with our brackets or looking at a deck railing, sign or fireplace surround we made for you, we want you to be fascinated and proud as we are. That is what drives us to move forward and expand our company. So, thank you! It is a great pleasure to have a business with you.


We believe that customers should have the ability to customize their metalworks rather than buying the generic ones just to satisfy the need of assembling timbers for their projects. We have seen generic brackets that are either have weak foundations or designed for structural purposes only. Cutting Edge Metals Inc. revolutionized how brackets should represent in the industry. We have gathered excellent designers, builders, and project managers to incorporate art into the process.

We want our company in the position where technology meets business, which is why we are stepping our business up by letting customers to use our embedded Live 3D Rendering Software into our website. As the business grows, depending on the company size and customer demand, we will incorporate more technology such as Augmented Reality to maximize the functionality of AR-supported computing devices such as smart phones and tablets to improve user’s experience.


Our mission was set out from the beginning to develop the most beautiful and useful architectural hardware for builders, architects, engineers, homeowners, commercial applications, and municipalities. We strive to fill a need to build timber brackets that will fit the timbers, rather than have our customers try to make their timbers fit a bracket. We consider it a privilege to be able to make the best quality, nicest looking hardware available. As we evolve, our commitment to make better architectural hardware will always be our goal.
