The Ballantyne's fire in November 1947 was a major catastrophe in Christchurch and remains a memorable part of the city's history. In the dark days that followed at the end of that year, a young electrician, Frank Millar set about establishing an electrical contracting and servicing business to which he gave his name.
Frank Millar & Co became one of the city's best known commercial electrical companies and for over 60 years has been involved in the development and re-development of many of the city's major businesses and construction projects.
Over this time Frank Millar & Co has developed from an extensive base of knowledge to a highly responsive business with a mix of experience and energy.
Today, the founding principles of the Company remain the same, based on integrity and honesty with a total focus on successfully completing projects to the highest standards. Our high level of experience dictates a self-governance of best practice, much sought after by our clients.
