In 2016, Boral celebrated 70 years since incorporation as 'Bitumen and Oil Refineries (Australia) Limited' on 4 March 1946.
Founded by David Craig, the company opened the first Australian-owned bitumen and oil refinery in March 1947 at Matraville on Sydney's Botany Bay.
Over seven decades, Boral has grown and evolved across various industries, including oil refining, gas supply, construction materials, building products and manufacturing in Australia, the USA, Europe and Asia.
Today, Boral has operations in 16 countries in Australasia, North America,
Asia and the Middle East under three operating divisions: Boral Australia,
the USG Boral joint venture and Boral USA.
