Our History

The Australian Hardware Journal is Australia’s only hardware industry magazine, providing readers with a monthly dose of all the latest industry news – also updated daily online – inside information on category trends and new product information, as well as plenty of business-to-business educational pieces to keep readers on the right track when running their business.

AHJ’s popular Retail Focus is also featured in each edition, detailing case studies on stores from around Australia, that have built their businesses into shining examples of successful independents. Extensive conference coverages are also featured extensively throughout the year, detailing the latest news from a variety of hardware, paint and tool groups. Established in 1881, AHJ has been a part of the Australian hardware industry for well over a century, and continues to guide and entertain readers through good times and bad.
