F A Mitchell & Co P/L is a family owned company started by Mr Frank Alan Mitchell during the great depression in 1933 and with a capital of 183 pounds he began as a timber broker importing Oregon timber. Situated in the Upper Bond stores at Circular Quay in Sydney, Frank's son Len Bruce Mitchell joined the company in 1936 and after serving in the Air Force during the war the company expanded into importing hardboard from Sweden and Eternit fibre cement panels from Belgium to supply the growing housing and building industries. It became necessary to find larger premises and in 1950 the company moved to Aladdin's industry store in Camperdown. With the addition of an extensive range of interior plywoods, both locally produced and imported, coloured spandrel panels from Eternit and acoustic mineral fibre ceiling panels from Armstrong (USA), still larger premises were obtained in 1959 at Adderley Street Lidcombe. During the 1980's Len's sons Mark and Steve came on board to help run the business. With further growth into wood panel products, structural plywoods, natural roofing slates from Spain and Brazil, fire retarding treatment and perforation of plywood and cut to size services, the company was once again on the move to larger premises at 41 East Street Lidcombe where they are currently located with over 6000 sq m of warehouse space.
