In November 2017, Brickworks purchased Urbanstone, the manufacturer of premium natural stone products. The acquisition demonstrates our commitment to delivering the best possible building products to the Australian market.
Founded in 1993 in Western Australia, Urbanstone’s range includes premium commercial and residential stone and concrete paving, pool copings, pier caps, wall claddings, and walling solutions.
Whilst the operational base remains in Western Australia, this well-known and established brand services a national market. Through our national distribution network we anticipate sales will grow rapidly.
Urbanstone is strongly aligned with Brickworks’ strategy and is expected to strengthen our leadership position, as well as reinforce our drive to inspire, support and create better-built environments.
Lindsay Partridge, Managing Director, Brickworks Building Products: “At Brickworks, we pride ourselves on offering outstanding building solutions, and with Urbanstone we have the opportunity to bring a new selection of bespoke landscaping materials to our customers. Urbanstone have built an amazing and innovative brand and we look forward to continued growth.”
The Urbanstone range will join the full suite of Brickworks Building Products which include; clay bricks, masonry blocks, retaining walls, pavers, roof tiles, metal roofing, specialised building systems, precast concrete panels, terracotta façade systems, and much more. Urbanstone products were introduced to Brickworks design centres and studios across the country in early 2018, offering convenient new locations for customers to access the range.
