Porters’ history traces back to 1883 when Charles Porter set up business in Mackay as a building contractor.  Over these early years Charles Porter established himself within the community having constructed numerous residential and commercial premises in the area.  He also, in this time, established a timber yard and a woodworking factory – “making and supplying all kinds of joinery”. Over the years Porters, by a policy of diversification and expansion, moved out of building construction and into the builders’ supply trade.

From these beginnings, Porters has developed to what it is today.
