We’ve got a rich history here at Vern Graham’s, and we’re proud to have been part of the Heyfield community for 90 years.
We’ve certainly seen some changes over the whopping 9 decades we’ve been operating, but one thing has always remained the same. Our passion for providing quality products and delivering the very best in friendly, local customer service.
Where it all began
In 1932, Vern Graham established the company with the sole aim of purchasing building materials for his own building business.
Before long, Vern began supplying timber and building supplies to other businesses and residents in the area.
Over the next 20 years, the business slowly expanded until Vern’s son Bob Graham began working in the store in 1955.
Motorcycles and more
In 1964, Vern Graham’s branched out into the field of motorcycles, becoming the one of the first Yamaha dealerships in Victoria.
Not content with just selling motorcycles, we opened a workshop service area to cater for motorcycle repairs too.
It was in 1970 that Bob Graham took over the business, overseeing further expansion of the building and facilities. This was to support not just the growth of the business, but also growth in the whole region and an ever-expanding product range.
In 1988, we built a much larger building to specifically hold all of our timber and large building materials.
By 2000, Bob’s son and current owner, David Graham, took over the business. The company and indeed the whole Heyfield area continued to grow, and as such we built another larger building to house all of our hardware products. The existing building became the new showroom for motorcycles, chainsaws and mowers.
In 2012, a new workshop was constructed to cater for a rising demand in motorcycle servicing and repairs.
To this day, we still continue to grow, servicing the wider Gippsland area with quality products and competitive pricing.
