John Young & Sons expanded into Gladstone in 1949 with George Young at the helm. George played an integral part in rebuilding much of Gladstone after the cyclone of 1949 ravaged the city. The company quickly established their name as a leading industrial and commercial construction company and was responsible for:


• The first conveyor belt for the Gladstone Harbour Board

• At least 27 of the buildings in Goondoon Street
• Many of our churches, pubs & banks
