I & M Simpson & Son Pty Ltd was established in 1953 by Ian and Mary Simpson who had migrated to Australia from Scotland. The business has been continued since 1976 by their son Gordon and his wife Janene Simpson. Gordon developed a passion for trucks from a very young age and joined the family business as soon as he finished school. “I’ve been around trucks all my life. I would go out with dad in his truck when I was only three or four years old. You couldn't get me out of them" he remarks. In 2013 Gordon was inducted into the National Road Transport Wall of Fame for his work in the transport industry.
More recently I & M Simpson and Son has expanded into its third generation with children Cameron, Haydn & Sarah joining the team, making this a truly family business.
I & M Simpson & Son have a long history of delivering high quality fuel and oils in the Alexandra area with a customer base including primary producers, transport companies, earthmoving operators, logging & haulage contractors and private customers.
