The business was founded by Newman McDonnell and his two sons Don and Les following the devastating softwood forest fires at Mount Burr in 1943. Through this tragic event, Newman, Don and Les took a team of workers from their home in Cobden Victoria to begin milling the burnt timber for the Southern Trading Company which had contracts with the Woods and Forest Department (now OneFortyOne).
