MillerClapperton’s Blog History

In 1979, Ted S. Miller and Dave Clapperton created a company that did more than just produce a product. They created an innovative and reliable company that would lead and inform the exterior cladding industry. One example of this is how Ted dedicated countless hours into writing his weekly blogs, over 226 blogs. The blogs became such a staple in the community that Metal Architecture magazine dedicated a section of its publication to Ted’s writings. The feature was named Ted’s MCM Corner. And for two years Ted informed and educated readers with a total of 19 articles. Just to prove how well-known and widespread these articles and blogs were, Ted was greeted by a reader from Canada while visiting the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. Below are some of our favorite blogs from Ted and the collection of Ted’s MCM Corner articles.
