Our People

Tim Miller Plumbing Ltd has been operating since 1986, and has a dedicated team, many of whom have been with the company for over 10 years. We are passionate about what we do. Please see our profiles below.

DirectorTim Miller


Tim is the Director and founder of Tim Miller Plumbing Ltd. He began as an apprentice at a large plumbing firm (A & T Burt Ltd) in Christchurch. His apprenticeship was based solely on commercial work. Mainly Christchurch public hospital redevelopment and Burwood Spinal Unit.

Tim was transferred to Nelson to work in 1980, still working for the same company, working on diesel fire burners and education board work. The last plumbing job he did was the Nelson Hospital Laundry.

In 1986 he began as a sole trader, and the business grew until he turned the business into a limited liability company in 1996.

Tim is a very experienced plumber, and now uses his skills and experience to oversee the day to day operations of the business and is involved in quoting larger work.

The proudest moment of Tim's career was the completing the plumbing for the Nelson Public Hospital redevelopment, which we believe was the largest plumbing job undertaken in Nelson at one time.

Tim is a certifying /craftsman plumber and a certifying /craftsman gasfitter.
