Our History / About Us
In 1922, Charles Joshua Jeays made the decision to begin a business of his own after working at Perry Brothers Hardware. He rented a small building and yard in Albert Street, Brisbane, and opened as Charles J Jeays Builders & Plumbers Supplier. His two brothers Joe and Arthur soon joined while the fourth brother, Albert, took care of the book work.
Most of their stock was imported and their customers almost exclusively the tradesmen of Brisbane and its spreading northern suburbs. As well, the truck that returned to Sandgate each night carried orders for Sandgate tradesmen.
We attribute the success of the business to the family's steady, honest approach to business and the support of good staff. The business has obviously been able to attract and keep good staff. The staff's current total length of service to the business is in excess of 250 years.
