It was David Miller and his brother William who opened the original D & W Miller & Co. in the second year of the nineteen sixties. They quickly expanded their manufacturing portfolio, securing contracts to supply barrel hoop iron to the whisky industry and subsequently formed the ‘Western Steel Company’ to specialise in this market. So successful were their efforts in this area that Miller Steel continues to supply hoop iron to many of the leading drinks manufacturers and to all the independent cooperages in Scotland.
Three brothers, Mark, Stephen and Paul represent the modern face of Miller Steel, a family firm which traces its reputation for high quality steel fabrication to their paternal grandfather, who co-founded the original business back in 1961.
Together, this third generation of the Miller family are driving the business forward, building on the company’s specialist skills in all types of steel manufacturing.
Of course in order to know where you are going, you have to appreciate where you have come from. So it is with all at Miller Steel, as the business draws on these years of hard earned experience.
In 1984, David’s son John became Managing Director of both companies and amalgamated them under the umbrella ‘Miller European Steels Ltd’, adding steel supply to the product range. The company moved into a purpose built 6500 sq.ft factory that year where it remains today.
The business thrived as John’s sons, Mark, Stephen and Paul joined the company. By 2000 they took over the running of the firm, re-forming under the current name while achieving the BS EN ISO 9002 standard in their first year in control.
The expansion of the business continues. Structural Steel Fabrication, Stainless Steel Fabrication, Steel Fencing, Architectural Metal Work & Automation are now available to a diverse range of clients.
Local Authorities, Housing Associations, Architectural Practices, Construction Companies, Home Builders and Bespoke Contractors all benefit from Miller Steel’s specialist skills, workmanship and experience garnered over these three generations.
Add a fine reputation for attention to detail and competitive pricing and Miller Steel are confident that you will appreciate they offer a superb, professional and comprehensive service to the discerning client. A service capable of meeting the most exacting of standards from an established family business you can trust.
