HISTORY
For almost 100 years, Lanhams has supplied quality building materials and hardware to the local community. Established in 1910 by Walter Lanham, W Lanham & Sons Timber Mill was built on Price Street in Nambour. Enduring the years of depression and war, the business eventually shifted to its current location in Court Road in 1945. By 1975, the business had diversified into being a supplier of hardware as well as timber. It was at this time the business became known as Lanhams.

Over 20 years ago the Melville family owned business, Melco, supplied the local Noosa area with timber and builders hardware. A decade ago it became apparent to Keith, John and Mark Melville that if Melco wanted to capture more of the DIY / retail market they needed a recognised retail hardware brand and it was decided to join the largest Australian independent hardware promotional group, Mitre 10. This move saw Melco expand the offering of builders hardware, introduce power tools, paint, plumbing, and garden making Melco Mitre 10 a one stop shop for our customers.
We had a new site, purpose built, and a bigger better range of products than ever before. Customer’s and the general public received the new store with open arms, as it gave them choice to shop locally with a locally owned company. Opened by Bob Abbott (Noosa Mayor) now Mayor of the Sunshine Coast – the Grand Opening was a huge success! The Melco Noosa site was one of the first buildings to be developed in Venture Drive and certainly the largest, it provided a draw card for other smaller business houses in the estate to increase sales and expand with the Melco store.

Thanks to the fantastic support received at the Noosa store, this gave us the opportunity to expand our horizons. From here another Mitre 10 Home & Trade store was opened in Gympie & Kunda Park.

2008 saw the merger between both the Melco & Lanhams companies, creating an entity that is now widely known as MelcoLanhams. Combining professional recognition with the atmosphere of business which is still family-run, MelcoLanhams is a unique company aimed at providing top quality service and range to both trade and retail customers. MelcoLanhams keeps expanding to meet the needs of clients within the timber, hardware and electrical industries. Our purpose built Kunda Park branch is now the main distribution point for our trade sales and deliveries for the Sunshine Coast Region.
