RPC Hardware is owned and operated by Husband and Wife team Peter McPherson and Kathy Robertson.Starting with an Ebay store set up in 2009 to help fund a trip around Australia, the business quickly grew into a full time job even causing the big trip to be cut short after just 7 months on the road.
Steady growth over the next 2 years has seen us move from humble beginnings in a self storage “mini warehouse” with no customer pickups, to a 3rd party pack and send facility and then on to our first warehouse in Dandenong South in May of 2012.
Mid 2014 saw us outgrow this warehouse and a move to a larger area of almost double the size, with much better facilities for both customers and transport access.
2015 saw us take the next logical step and expand our market with the introduction of an online store, focusing primarily on the Hobby Farm and Small Acreage markets, we are continually expanding our range of quality products in the implements, work shop and farm tools categories.
Over the next 18 months we have gradually changed our business model, with or focus on direct imports, late 2016 saw us become a fully direct import operation.
With the growth and support of our small but dedicated team, we are now finally in a position to adjust the work/lifestyle balance and take the show back on the road! With the tools at our disposal today, we could be just as easily operating the business from our warehouse or anywhere the sun takes us.
Our mission is to provide quality products, at affordable prices, backed by friendly, knowledgeable after sales support.
