Superior craftsmanship and dedicated customer service have been family traditions for five generations at Wm. J. Mills & Co. Knownfirst as sailmakers, Wm. J. Mills & Co. came toGreenport at the tip of Long Island's North Fork in the late 19th century.William Mills, a Scottish immigrant, moved from Northport, on Long Island Sound,to Patchogue on the South Shore, and then to Greenport. A growth spurt in NewYork City led to greater demand for fish and for shippingin general. Greenport was the bustling place to be for recreational andcommercial water-related activities.
Today, sails are but a small part of the business, which has seen its mostrecent success in awnings, custom-canvas products, and canvas accessories for BostonWhaler® boats. It remainslargely a local business, serving the eastern segment of Long Island--fromWading River to Orient on the North Fork and from Eastport to Montauk on the South.However, internationally known for its Whaler®canvas, thecompany continues toship these and other products world-wide.
Wm. J. Mills & Co. provides canvas items for individuals and for businesses: awnings, tents, umbrellas, shelters, bags, covers, and other items for home or commercial use, as well as sails, dodgers, sun tops, and a variety of covers for boats large and small.
