1986

As the team increased in size there was need for larger offices and a warehousing facility. The Group purchased a burnt out building at 148 Little Lonsdale Street, previously one of Melbourne’s early rest houses and more recently a motor mechanics premises.

The building was refurbished and business relocated from the Spencer Street office.

Innovations

The HMC team designed and stocked two new partition systems (Series 65 and Series 83). Series 65 is a modular panel system and Series 83 is a 51mm steel stud dry-wall system. Both were very innovative as they had limited number of extrusions and components and were widely accepted within the market.
