David Brothers Pty Ltd (1935 - 1973)

Archival Resources
Location: Wollongong, New South Wales

Established in 1895 by David and Edward David as a small family iron foundry in Wollongong, New South Wales. In 1935 the family business became a public company with a share issue of 15,000. The issue was increased to 50,000 in 1962. The company owned much of its success to the development of the steel industry at Port Kembla, New South Wales, and became a major supplier of castings to Australian Iron and Steel. During the decade prior to 1967 the company's annual turnover was in the vicinity of 500,000. However, due to difficulties associated with the New South Wales Clean Air At, 1961, which necessitated the installation of expensive emission control equipment, the company went into decline after 1967. A liquidator was appointed in October 1967 and the company ceased operations two weeks later.
