Well-known for its quality door and window furniture. Miles Nelson’s original endeavours were to help with the war effort, namely the manufacturing of electric fencing and other products from its Airedale Street site.

It was only towards the end of World War II that the company began manufacturing its traditional hardware range. Today, Miles Nelson supplies a mix of imported and locally manufactured hardware products from its original 1960, 25,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution centre in Milford, on Auckland’s North Shore.

Our company is renowned for its quality product range, innovative new products; high service levels and remains the single most convenient source for general hardware related products.
