History of Doyles Pty Ltd

John Doyle was a pioneer of the timber industry in the Mary Valley and built his first mill at Upper Kandanga in 1899. This mill was cutting Qld hoop pine, drawn by bullock teams from the surrounding scrub. He later operated mills at Imbil, Pomona and Ringtail.

John Doyle died in 1939.

In 1935 John Doyle purchased a firewood mill in Kedron Avenue beside the railway station and Doyles Pty Ltd was founded. A forestry license was purchased and the mill cut natural hoop pine logs railed in from areas in South East Queensland.

John Doyle's son in law, Roy Burnett, came down from Upper Kandanga in 1938 to manage the Mitchelton yard and was involved until he slowly eased out of the business 50 years later. Over the years, more land was purchased in Kedron Avenue and the business supplied a lot of the hardwood and pine used in the building of houses in the area.

Roy's son, Laurence, joined the company in 1958 then another son, Clyde, in 1965. The company expanded the range into hardware and sheeting to service the needs of a growing tradesman and home handyman market.

In 1986, a timber drive-through was built (One of the first in Queensland).

In 1987, Laurence's son, Mark, commenced in the business and in 1993 the timber and hardware group Home was launched.

The business now trades under the name of Doyles Home Timber & Hardware and is still totally owned within the family.

We are proud as a fourth generation business to see our market growing and our aim is to maintain a personal service to our customers and the local community.
