The Wilson family took a controlling interest in H J Reece (Holdings) Limited in 1969. At that time the company was a small ASX listed hardware and plumbing supply merchant with an outlet in Caulfield and Clayton.
After completing a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Melbourne, Bruce joined the family business in the areas of finance and administration, leading to roles of Company Secretary and Finance Director.
The holding company now operates as Reece Australia Ltd and is the largest plumbing supplier to the trade and retail in Australia, having 440 outlets and operating in all Australian States and New Zealand.
Reece Australia Ltd is now regarded as one of Australia’s highest performing companies and has been consistently listed in the ASX top 100 in recent years.
