In the 1920's public spirited people in the small Victorian country town of Maryborough jointly raised the capital to purchase and relocate the P&N company from its original location in Elsternwick a Melbourne suburb.
The company is now called Patience & Nicholson Aust Pty Ltd, and is known worldwide for the quality products produced from its Maryborough and Hamilton factories. The brand name of P&N still lives on the tools, drill bits and cutting tools produced by a proud Australian Company.
