Rudd’s was initially established by Ian Rudd in 1984. In 1986 the Midvale Branch was established at its current location 24 Farrall Rd to service both the Midvale area and as a convenient location for visiting farmers from the Wheatbelt. In 1997 a branch was opened in Welshpool on Kewdale Rd to service the increasing industrial business in the area.
In June 2005 Howard Richardson and Brett Mitchell purchased the business. Coming from senior management roles from within Wesfarmers Landmark they were accompanied by Justin Marendoli-Murray(CFO) and Andrew McCloy (Quotes and Data Management) also with senior positions at Landmark. They set about the modernisation of the business that has brought Rudds to the position it is in today. A state of the art point of sale, stock control and warehousing system was introduced, the range of stock increased substantially, providing new categories and developing the “one stop shop” for industrial supplies that is present today.
The business continued to grow and the need for further expansion to the current premise at 473 Orrong Rd Welshpool was required in 2014. The depth of product and range of suppliers continues to increase. Recently included have been the broad range of Australian manufactured Sutton drilling and tapping consumables, and also the advanced range of 3M Safety, Abrasives and Tapes.
