Forged during tough times...

The Stornoway story began in 1976, when Alan Gardner (right) foresaw challenging times for his Tasmanian dairy farm and decided that he needed to innovate. Alan partnered with Philip Bowden (left) and set about creating a thriving quarry operation from a small gravel pit located on the Stornoway farm.

Over the ensuing years, Stornoway grew steadily as a quarry operator and civil contractor, taking on a blend of construction and long term maintenance contracts.

In 2003 Alan's youngest son Tim took over leadership of Stornoway and has overseen diversification and development of the business to the point where it now delivers a range of specialist civil asset construction, maintenance and operating services across Australia.
