The 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 travelling 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.
The Haggarty Group Qld is committed to continual improvement of our environment. The Environment plays an ever increasing role in our world today. The simplest way to help save our environment is to recycle. The Haggarty Group Qld in using best business practices aims to improve the quality of life of the communities in which we operate and protection of the environment.
We endeavour to significantly reduce the impact and environmental footprint that we leave behind us. The very fundamentals of our business help to considerably reduce this effect. We are committed to delivering a sustainable future for generations to come.
Recycling reduces greenhouse gas emissions by requiring significantly less energy to manufacture products from recyclables than from ore.
