Since 1890 Miller Paint has been making paint for the professional painter specifically designed for the Pacific Northwest. In fact, that’s how Miller Paint was started. In 1890, Ernest Miller, our founder (and a professional painter at that time), was dissatisfied with the quality of product available. Because he wanted the best, he decided he would have to make it. Soon after, other professional painters started asking for “Ernest Miller House Paint” and the Miller Paint Company was born.
