Our History

A group of Canberra builders opened our warehouse in 1966, specialising in building and hardware products. Over the years the Co-op has progressed and grown significantly and employs over 15 people and is well established in the very competitive building, construction and hardware industry within the ACT region. Our basic philosophy has been and continues to be, to develop and foster reputable working relationships with our customers and suppliers along with keeping up-to-date with new and improved products and services. This has been attributable to the Co-op’s success and continual growth.

With our ongoing commitment to staff development, relationship and partnership building, whilst remaining at the forefront of innovations and building ideas, we are committed to continual improvement. These improvements are applied to our range of products and services which enables us to remain a leading edge within the building, construction and hardware industry.

Our board of directors are builders and between them have many decades of building industry knowledge and experience. They listen to, and review many of the questions, recommendations and ideas received from the shareholders so they can look at ways to continually improve the products and services provided to all our stakeholders. They are always keen to hear any ideas or thoughts on ways to benefit and improve the Co-op.
