Grahams Concrete Since 1967


In 1967 Ernest Henry Graham (Harry Graham) opened his first concrete plant in Kyogle NSW, with his son John by his side, using every excuse why he should be working and not at school. It wasn't long before work was more important then school for John and he became an important part of the concrete business.

In September 1980 Harry handed the business on to his son John and his wife Chrystine, with John running the concrete side of the business and Chrystine managing the bookwork.

In 1988 our eldest son Peter came on board and helped out with the building of the Geneva bridge, also finding any excuse to skip school and help out at the concrete yard. Rodney, our youngest son, came on board in 1997. Rod had already decided work was the way to go for him and finished school and joined the grahams concrete work team.

In April 2004 John and Chrystine handed the business on to their boys Peter and Rodney . John officially retired in January 2006 but still sits on the bench and you will quite often have a cement truck arrive with John behind the wheel (which he still love to do.) Chrystine officially retired in December 2007 but is on call for the odd day here and there & Maternity leave, and still helps out with the bookwork. This leaves Rods wife Karie who started in January 2004 and Peters wife Joeanne who came aboard in January 2007 sharing the office work load.

Grahams Concrete is still situated on the same block of land that Harry started it on in 1967 with the original fordson major loader situated in the back of the concrete yard, not in working order, but just for our keepsake. And in January 2007 John tracked down and restored the first concrete bowl which Harry started with in 1967.
