Carol’s new finds:
From business magazines in Trove:
1958 Beutron (Australia) Ltd was exporting to Canada.
1963 Their South African factory was opening. They also had factories in New Zealand and Hong Kong. F.W. Williams Holdings Ltd bought a 50 percent interest in Beutron Australia and made a cash offer for General Plastics. (see below)
1965 F.W.Williams returned no dividend from Beutron.
1966 F.W. Williams made losses from Beutron and other holdings.
1968 Pioneer Concrete has taken over F.W.Williams and so now owns 50 percent of Beutron (Aust) Ltd. Marshall Ney and his son David are still directors.
1969 Pioneer Concrete sells its interest in Beutron “for a substantial cash profit’.
2001 J. Leutenegger acquires Beutron.
