Chatterton Lacework is a family business which began trading in 1946. It began trading as “Chatterton Brothers” in an old army hut at 493 Keilor Road Niddrie. In the mid 1960’s it was relocated half a mile up the road to 583 Keilor Road, where it remained until 2004, some 40 years later. It then relocated to Beverage Drive, Tullamarine, where it operates from today.
