OUR HISTORY

 

At MillerClapperton, we have a long history of working with both architects and general contractors. Ted S. Miller and Dave Clapperton, the founding partners, had been leading salesmen for H.H. Robertson Co., the premier manufacturer of metal architectural products at the time. In the Southern Region for H.H. Robertson, Ted was the #1 Sales Engineer and David was the #2 Sales Engineer. After 8 years at HH Robertson Co., Ted and Dave resigned and put into action a 1-year business plan that was the beginning of MillerClapperton. Over 40 years and 180+ employees later, the MillerClapperton name has come to stand for quality, experience, professionalism and our strong commitment to our customers.
