THE HISTORY OF PROTOTYPE COMMERCIAL FURNITURE

FOUNDED IN 1969

Where it all began...

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

With Family Values

The established family owned business acquired an exisiting small furniture company and Prototype Commercial Furniture was born in 2006. Passed down on to third generation Morahan's the family identified a great need to import and custom make quality furniture for commercial enviornments around Brisbane and Australia. Cleverly this helped feed into importing better quality furniture for the hire business as well.
