Acquired by

Johns & Waygood (later known as Johns Perry Lifts) was an Australian elevator company. It was sold to Boral Limited in 1986.


Johns & Waygood was established as a public company in 1892. In 1966 the company merged with another company Perry Engineering, which at that time it was often called "Johns and Waygood Perry" but didn't changed to Johns Perry Ltd. until 1974. The company was taken over by Boral Limited in 1986. After further takeovers the company became known as Advanced Building Technologies Group Pty. Ltd. and was still operating under that name in 2006.
