Our History

Dale and Meyers commenced business in 1988 when two friends Gary Dale and John Meyers began producing hardwood landscape sleepers for the local market.

In 1990 John and Gary purchased a Timber Treatment Plant that allowed them to offer treated landscape timbers with a greatly improved life expectancy.

The business continued to grow throughout the 1990’s expanding the product range to include power poles, piles, building timbers and cross arms. The company acquired additional timber treatment plants and pole storage yards.

In 2002 Raymond (Curly) Tatnell became a partner in the business and it expanded further with the acquisition of Truss and Frame Plants.

In 2005 John Meyers retired as Director, paving the way for a company restructure, with the emergence of Dale and Meyers Operations Pty Ltd under the Directorship of Curly.
