Our History

In 1839, 3 years after the proclamation of South Australia, Alexander Elder arrived in Adelaide and established Elders Limited.

Born into a Scottish merchant family, he wanted to explore opportunities for exporting goods back to Britain, including wool and copper.

After battling for a few years, the copper boom saw him prosper and he was joined in Australia by his brothers, William, George and Thomas.

It was one of these brothers, Thomas, who realised the huge potential of the pastoral outback and it was under his encouragement the business imported camels to arrange transport. This unlooked the vast interior of Australia, making it possible to tap into the Great Australian Basin and the hidden water that made grazing viable.

Thomas Elder was laying the foundations of a national business empire that would be built on the back of the sheep industry but which was funded with cash from the copper boom; cash that enabled him and his peers to acquire huge tracts of land.

The Elders business never looked back.

The company expanded nationwide and over the years diversified into wool, livestock, grain, real estate, financial services, agronomy and farm supplies services, shaping it into the company it is today.

Today, Elders has branches and presence across 450 locations in Australia and operations throughout South East Asia.

Although our clients vary in size, production, industry and location, they have one common goal: to maximise the performance and returns of their farming enterprise. Whether you’re looking for assistance during the launch phase of your business or are looking to increase the value and size of your established business, Elders has the resources and experience to help you reach your short and long term goals. Elders, Always in your corner.
