Mr John Watson Miller founded Millers Oils Ltd in 1887, though the business was then titled Millers Bros. The Millers family have always been prevalent in this varied sector, even beyond the duties of the business, with ventures such as running a successful outboard racing team in the 1920’s and having passions in model engineering, with one family member being part of the Huddersfield Society of Model Engineers. The business has always had active involvement from a member of the Millers family. Millers Oils has always strived to lead the way in innovation. We were the first producer of long drain interval oil for trucks along with producing the first diesel specific engine oil for cars.
Fast forward to today, nearly 130 years later, Millers Oils remains a significant local employer. In 1889 our founder, John Watson Miller, wrote to all customers thanking them for “past favours” and stating that “the quality of my oil will be rigidly adhered to” and today some 130 years later, this is still the mantra that drives our business. We have no particular interest in being the biggest, rather a driving passion to be the best at what we do.
