The Kwinana district became an important part to the economy of Western Australia. Large-scale industrial infrastructure brings a large scale workforce, producing some stand out characters who will later define the industry in WA.
One of those characters was Lionel Hollands and the beginnings of ‘L. Hollands & Sons’. A trucking business that grew with the times and later changed business direction in 1975 to a trucking business who as well catered for sand supplies.
A fast-growing population with recreational facilities for lawn bowls proved a good start into Red Sand Supplies and building bowling greens. Lionel Hollands and Red Sand Supplies built many bowling greens and one well know club was Mosman Bowling club that later hosted the commonwealth games to which Red Sand Supplies prepared the greens.
