THE HISTORY OF MORETON HIRE
Moreton Hire is a family owned business with a long history and an exciting future.
FOUNDED IN 1969
Moreton Hire was founded in 1969 by Marlene and Kevin Morahan in Manly, Brisbane. The Morahan’s bought chairs for the school fete, but before they knew it, the locals were putting in their borrowing requests. “Moreton Bay Hire” was officially born in their family garage, offering party and building equipment for hire.
A FAMILY BUSINESS
In 1978, tragedy struck the family when Kevin passed away, leaving Marlene with the business and six children. Marlene and her eldest teenaged sons, Peter and Neil, took over their backyard party hire business, determined to become synonymous with the supply of hospitality equipment in Queensland. Since then, Marlene’s children dropped the “Bay” in the name, and expanded Moreton Hire across Australia.
Since these humble beginnings, the company has continued to reinvent itself. With its products, services, technology and sectors continuously developed to offer a modern service for our customers. Today, Marlene’s children and grandchildren continue to drive Moreton Hire to be Australia’s largest business event provider.
