Arriving in Australia from Holland in the 1950’s where he had previously served with the Air Force. Len, who was a highly skilled draftsman, initially gained employment at the whaling station in Carnarvon as a welder fabricator.
Sometime later after leaving Carnarvon and moving to Perth, Len was employed as a welder fabricator by the State Energy Commission in Belmont fabricating various electrical manufactured steel pole hardware items. Len very quickly recognized an opportunity to start a business fabricating line components for the S.E.C. One day while Len was fabricating street light brackets which the S.E.C. was paying about nine shillings and sixpence for each, Len offered to make them for fewer than five shillings each, and suggested if they were to give him an order for 50 or more, he would start straight away.
Len received orders for a range of components and commenced working from the back of an old farm shed on a property on the corner of Belgravia Street and Alexander Road in Belmont. Some time later he purchased part of this land in Alexander Road Belmont where he later built and set up a small factory unit.
Len continued to grow the company moving into a factory unit in Knutsford Ave Belmont, where he remained until the late 70’s when he built a new facility in Hodgson Way in Kewdale. At this point in time the company was engaged in Structural Steel fabrication, had a foundry dealing mainly in non-ferrous metals, and a very busy fabrication and assembly shop producing switchgear and line hardware for the S.E.C.
