Welcome to the WA Salvage History Website.

My name is Steve Masnyk. I started work with WA Salvage on the 8th of March 1972 and resigned in February 1998. When WA Salvage finally closed its doors I was working at Mitre 10 and for many years I thought of hosting a WA Salvage history website and, with the assistance of Onyx-Studios, have created a website to recall a very unique retailer that instigated a stepping stone for many other retailers that still exist today. During my time with the company, WA Salavage manifested from a demolition company that mainly sold second-hand merchandise at its Cannington yard into a leading timber hardware and household products retailer with sixteen stores. The character Luigi was unique and WA Salvage was unique.
