Austral Bricks remains unchallenged as the largest brick manufacturer in Victoria, a position it has held for many years. The company employs over 400 staff and has five Victorian plants producing wire-cut, sandstock and pressed bricks, clay pavers, terracotta and concrete roof tiles (all under the Nubrik name) as well as concrete pavers, concrete masonry and Linkwall retaining wall blocks (marketed under the well-known Besser name).
This product range is unparalleled in the building materials industry. Austral Bricks is renowned for its expertise in clay products and is diversifying its concrete products with units such as Shannon Stone blocks, large-format pavers and the Link Wall retaining wall system.
The three partners who came together in 1862 would no doubt be surprised that their initiative is still paying dividends almost 140 years later. Their recognition of the value of innovation and technological change remains integral to the Austral Bricks culture.
