To Peter and Mary it seems like only a blink of the eye, but it was actually in 1991 that Peter went out to his back shed in Point Chevalier and started playing around with a few messy bags of iron oxide. When they started the business, it was just the two of them, in a recession, packing, invoicing, accounting and selling - everything, and Mary had a second job keeping the household afloat as well! Their kids Shannon and Brennan grew up with colour and a school-boy Brennan famously served customers who showed up at the house while Peter was being rushed to Hospital with a heart attack in 1992.
In spite of three recessions and a triple bypass, from all Peter and Mary's hard work, we have now grown into a well known brand, eleven staff, a purpose built showroom, and an ever expanding number of product lines. And we have no plans to rest on our laurels.
