This year, 2018, see Mills Ltd chalk up one hundred successful years in business.  In celebration of this achievement, the company has produced a video telling the story of its progress towards such a significant milestone.

You can watch the video on YouTube.  Just follow the link  or put “Mills 100 years” into the YouTube search engine.

The video traces the development of Mills from a high street retail outlet in Acton in 1918, selling high quality army surplus engineering tools, to the multi-million pound organisation it is today with a 50,000 sq.ft. factory in Greenford supplying structural cabling, cabling management materials and specialist tooling for the communication industry to customers across the UK and around the world.

For all that time, Mills Ltd has remained a family business with four generations of Mills masterminding the Company’s development.  You’ll meet them all in the video including founders Arthur and Louise Mills, their son Maurice Mills who entered the business after the Second World War, his son Jerry who is today’s managing director and Jerry’s son Elliot who has recently joined the firm as business development manager.

There are brief appearance in the video from celebrity customers such as Mitch Mitchell of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Roger Daltry of the Who.  Even Concorde gets involved, taking delivery of one of Mills’ specialist tool kits developed for British Airways.

There’s also a behind-the-scenes look at how the Mills’ organisation operates and keeps track of the thousands of products that leave their premises every day for delivery the following morning, a product range that has now expanded to include Fusion integrated structured cabling and fibre optic solutions together with specialist underground and overhead telecom tooling.
