That early door-to -door personal approach won Mipa many customers, and the business grew. They bought a warehouse Boronia and then the warehouse next door also as demand began to exceed capacity. Part of the demand was for research and development to ensure Mipa paint suited Australian conditions and colour requirements.
Mipa has its own laboratory in Melbourne. There they prepare formulations for local cars that are not seen in Europe as well as for vehicles in the South East Asian, South African and New Zealand markets. That laboratory now has extensive feedback into Mipa's work in Europe and the products they produce.
Today this ever expanding and fast growing business is run by Bill's two sons Arthur and Con.
