Arnold Clement Whalan established A.C. Whalan & Co Pty Ltd and commenced trading in 1939, the business traded as a stock and station agent with business involvement primarily in agricultural activities, such as the supply of rural produce, fencing and feed. At the time Pit ponies were used to supply the transport muscle to haul the hand dug coal in dolly cars to the surface of the underground mines in Lithgow and the surrounding area. This is where A.C. Whalan & Co Pty Ltd commenced it association with the mining industry.
As Tunnelling became a viable solution to expanding cities road & rail congestion, AC Whalan & Co again through its experience in air & water reticulation became involved in the design & supply of pipe works for Tunnelling Projects
