R&W History

RICHARDSON & WRENCH – OUR HISTORY

Richardson & Wrench turned 150 years old on the 1st of January 2008. Founded in 1858 when there were only a modest number of people living in Sydney; before Stanley found Dr Livingston in Darkest Africa, before Bell invented the telephone, before Gold was discovered in Kalgoorlie, before the Bourke and Wills expedition, before Queensland and New South Wales became separate states, and before the discovery of Ayers Rock, and in the year Emperor Franz Josef ruled over the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Bismark over an emerging Germany and Queen Victoria of the British Empire granted Florence Nightingale her first royal audience, this remarkable enterprise has lived through most of Australia’s history.

The growth of Richardson & Wrench reflects the growth of our nation. The Company has long been a household name in New South Wales and, like Broken Hill Proprietary or Grace Brothers, requires no further identification. It has survived recessions, depressions, droughts, urban fires as well as bush fires, world wars and unwanted takeover bids. It has prospered as Australia has prospered, because of hard work, vision and faith.

The firm’s founders, Robert Richardson and Edward Wrench, were men brought up in the Victorian tradition of idealism and morality. Throughout their lives, they achieved the highest standards of professional ethics and their reputation for integrity was second to none. Their business values and style of operation remain to this day, one hundred and fifty years later, the Company’s greatest single asset.
