Where We Started
Ipswich Mower's has certainly come a long way since the days when Vic Vermeer (Jon's father) started sharpening tools, handsaws and hand mowers after work in the 1950's. Back then, Mining & Hardware Supplies co. in Brisbane Street, Ipswich acted as the only depot for customers to leave their tools to be sharpened. Then in 1955, Vic Vermeer decided to leave his job at Scott's Engineering and open a Sharpening and Repair store in Limestone street - "Vermeer's Engineering".
Since then, the format of the business has changed considerably since the 1950's. Vic rented a shop on The Terrace, North Ipswich (next to the Strand Hotel) for two pounds a week - operating under the name Vermeer's Lawnmower Sales and Service. Working together with brother-in-law Tom Bowers, Vic started a weekly delivery service to printers throughout Brisbane, offering a guillotine knife grinding service along with selling Pace mowers and chainsaws. in 1972 Vermeer's Lawnmower Sales and Service was renamed to Ipswich Mower & Saw Service PTY LTD. Then in 1979, Vic took on a German Chainsaw brand called Stihl & become the first Stihl Dealer in Ipswich.
Where We Are Today
Today, Ipswich Mowers remains family owned and operated by the Vermeer family after Jon Vermeer (Vic's son) began his apprenticeship in 1979, before taking over the family business with Karen Vermeer (Jon's Wife) in 1991.
Jim Vermeer (Jon's Brother) is the current Showroom Manager. Starting his journey back with Jon in the 1980's. Over the years, multiple family members have work in and around the shop. With Sonia Lartiz (Jon's Niece) being the latest to work alongside them.
