About usThe Haggarty Group Qld was established in 1949 by founders Jack and Rene Haggarty. For many years the Haggarty’s were known as the local “Bottle O”. Jack and Rene worked many long, hard years to develop their business with Jack traveling throughout the state, going far and wide collecting scrap metal while Rene would look after the business interests at home.
In 1966, son John joined the family business following a career with the Commonwealth Bank and in 1980 John’s wife Sandra joined the firm after rearing 3 children. 3 years later John and Sandra purchased the business from Mum and Dad.
Today another generation of Haggarty is involved with the business with John and Sandra’s son Scott, now the General Manager of the group. His involvement continues to ensure the Haggarty name is synonymous with quality products and first class service.
The consistent growth of The Haggarty Group Qld forced a move to larger premises in 1995 which allowed the business to expand into the steel supply, fabrication, reinforcing and welding industries. This is in addition to already being one of the largest roofing companies in Queensland, a hose manufacturer, oil distributor and scrap metal merchant.
In September 2007 The Haggarty Group Qld again showed its diversification in purchasing “Aussie Paint Barn”. John has never been one to rest on his laurels and thrives on the challenge of business. This latest purchase enables The Haggarty Group Qld to offer its customers a one stop shop where people can get virtually everything they need in the one place and be treated with the same level of service The Haggarty name represents.
The Haggarty family and their wonderful team of staff believe in maintaining the tradition that Jack and Rene started so many years ago, offering the community excellent and friendly service and growing with the ever increasing needs of their customers.
