Geo. J. Bone and Sons was established in 1919 by George J. Bone and his son Stan on 1.5 acres of land in Maria Street, Edwardstown. Stan had moved to Australia at the age of 21 in 1910 and then convinced his father, mother and the rest of the family to come in 1912.
In 1932, Stan Bone had negotiated to purchase the land we currently trade from for the sum of 500 Pounds. This purchase was made during the depression and gives an indication of the foresight of this era.
Stan Bone was followed by the third generation, Lloyd Bone, who ran the company from 1946 until he retired in 1980.
The business today is owned by 25 family members including Howard Bone, Managing Director and cousin Chris Bone, a Director.
