The company remained there for 108 years. In 1966 the business relocated to Kavanagh Street in South Melbourne and in 1998 the head office and main warehouse functions were moved to 16-26 Dunlop Road, Mulgrave. In 2015 we moved our head office, and warehouse to a 64,000 sq. foot facility located in Dandenong South.
