Miller UK Ltd Begin to See Green Shoots of Recovery

Miller UK Ltd has been at the forefront of design technology for over three decades, constantly developing new products and ensuring that safety is its highest priority. Even through challenging economic times, the company continues to invest heavily in delivering products that are the safest and best quality on the market. Now they are beginning to see the green shoot of a recovery.

A key area in which the company has proven its engineering capability is in bucket repair.
In 1978, the current Chairman, Keith Miller, took the bold step to start up an on-site welding repair service in his native North East, providing a service to mining, quarrying and other industries throughout the UK. The quality of his workmanship and the overall service he provided allowed the company to grow and diversify into the global manufacturer it is today.

Keith’s brother Gary also joined in 1979 and sister Jacqui completed the sibling team in 1981.

When the financial crisis hit in 2008, most of the industry’s manufacturing businesses were badly affected, but the re-investment in existing machinery created a boom for Miller’s in-house repair service.

John Coward, the UK Repairs Manager for Miller, commented, “A typical bucket overhaul is around 60% of the cost of a new bucket of the same specification, offering a significant saving to the customer.
