Biographies

Lance Hill invented Australia's iconic Hill's Hoist - a rotary clothes line which was found in the backyard of most Australian homes from the 1950s. He came up with the invention after being urged by his wife to improve their own clothes line. Hill was soon transformed from an unemployed war veteran to the founder of very successful business. Today Hills Industries continues to make clothes lines, but also numerous other products including ironing boards, wheelbarrows, antennas, building and roofing products.
