Our Story

The Lundgaard family purchased Darling Downs Brick Sales on 1 May 1984. The retail store then based at Sowden Street, Toowoomba sold bricks, blocks and pavers to customers mainly in Toowoomba and surrounding towns.

Bricks, blocks and pavers are heavy! Ivar Lundgaard, Managing Director being passionate about providing customers with excellent customer service then founded Dantrans Pty Ltd a purpose built trucking company in 1984, to provide reliable delivery of products to customers.

In 1993 due to needing more space, the business moved to a new retail store and display yard at 23 Rocla Court, Toowoomba.

Darling Downs Brick Sales was inducted into the Business Hall of Fame at the Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce, Business Excellence Awards in 2008.

From 1 July 2019, Darling Downs Brick Sales moved to a brand new store and display at 19 Markelee Street, Toowoomba to provide a better customer experience. This move has had very positive feedback from customers todate.
