Our Story

Following in his father’s footsteps Ronald Thomas Simpson began his carpentry business operating out of a small home office at Blacksmiths.
His sons, Gary & John Simpson joined the business upon leaving school completing their carpentry/joinery apprenticeships. Then they went on to complete Clerk of Works & Builders business courses as they worked their way through the company, eventually taking over as working Directors. John retired in 2010 leaving Gary as sole owner/operator.

R T Simpson & Sons Pty Ltd was registered as a company in July 1980 and in 1997 the business moved to the current location at Gateshead where we have our office.

As we are a small family business one of the first things you will notice is the personalised service we provide. From the beginning & throughout your project you will liaise directly with Gary Simpson or Scott, our site supervisor.

We have successfully completed many projects over the years in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie area including work for Energy Australia, Stockland and local identity Mark Richards. The majority of our work comes from recommendations from past clients and word of mouth.

Our good reputation has been acquired by the quality of our work, attention to detail as well as our honesty & integrity which we strive to maintain.
