Australian Plumbing Business Still Running After 125 Years
A family owned family business in Alexandra, Sydney has been up and running since it was first established in 1878 by Alfred Lawson. That means this business has been providing services to Australians with plumbing dilemmas for over 125 years now!
Trading as A. Lawson, Alfred had 3 sons and they all became plumbers. His 2 sons, John and another Albert, set up a partnership under the current name Lawson Bros., after his death in 1917.
When John decided to take a different road, Alfred continued the business. He aslo had two sons – Bruce and Colin and they too became plumbers. Bruce had two sons, John who became a civil engineer and Peter who became a certified plumber, drainer and gas fitter.
In 1985 John and Peter bought the business from Bruce and Colin and are still operating today – as Lawson Bros. Pty. Limited.
