At Millin We Take This Personally

Who is Millin?

  • To understand how Millin was born we must start back in 2009 with a company called the Housepainters. As a former owner of the Housepainters, we were looking for a tool to strip lead based paint from homes, that was safe, fast and efficient.

  • We had used liquid strippers, sanders connected to extractors and other mechanical stripping machines to name a few, eventually our search led us to the Paintshaver Pro. We took a chance and imported one

  • We tried it and were convinced that this was the new face of paintstripping, it is safe, fast and efficient. In fact we were so impressed at how good it was we secured the NZ agency for the Paintshaver and formed the company Millin.

Millin was initially set up purely as a web based company to sell the Paintshaver, however this opened many doors with customers wanting vacuums, sanders and consumables to finish behind the Paintshaver ………. From there we have grown to sell an ever expanding range of products from household brands, through to lesser known independent distributors of fantastic quality products that you do not find in your big retail shops. 

In 2016 I left the Housepainters and now am the sole owner of Millin.

What Makes Millin Different? 

Me! Matt Piggin.

I have been involved in the trades for over 20 years, I have built new homes, renovated old homes and co-owned a very successful painting company, this has given me a good understanding of what should be expected of service, product quality and advice. I make Millin different because it is personal to me, if I do not provide quality products, great service or sound advice it is personal.
