Boral Building Products
Boral Building Products is a leading supplier of bricks, roofing, hardwood and softwood timber products, and aluminium windows in Australia.
Boral Bricks manufactures and markets clay bricks for residential and commercial walling applications. Our operations comprise six brick manufacturing sites in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
In 2010 Boral acquired Cultured Stone from Owens Corning, the leading stone veneer company in North America with plants in California and South Carolina. In 2011, Boral launched Cultured Stone in Australia with nine distinct ranges. Through clever engineering, Cultured Stone weighs much less than natural stone while still achieving the complexity of colour, pattern and unique texture of stone.
Boral is a manufacturer of concrete masonry products in Australia, with products for the paving, landscaping and retaining wall segments.
Boral is one of Australia's largest roofing manufacturers and competes in both the supply-only and supply-and-fix market segments. Boral operates three concrete roof tile plants, in the cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide and one clay roof tile plant at Wyee, on the New South Wales Central Coast.
Timber - Hardwood
Boral's hardwood business operates 9 manufacturing facilities in New South Wales and distributes product to domestic and export markets. The business has a strong position in both structural and flooring markets. Boral exports small quantities of woodchips processed from sawmill waste, forest residues and plantation stock from its own and other hardwood operations in northern New South Wales.
Timber - Softwood
Boral's main softwood manufacturing facility is located at Oberon in New South Wales and operates through a 50% joint venture with Carter Holt Harvey (now owned by Rank Group). The mill has a capacity of around 725,000m3. Softwood products are primarily sold in Australia's East Coast markets.
Boral operates its window businesses under various brand names, the largest of which is Dowell Windows. Dowell Windows is a leading supplier of aluminium windows and doors in the Australian housing market. The business operates nationally through seven window fabrication businesses.
