How our building supplies and acoustic fencing business came about
Poly-Tek Australia Pty Ltd are a family owned and operated manufacturing business, based in Brisbane. Poly-Tek was formed in 2003 by a team with over 40 years’ experience and expertise in the building industry.
We began by providing labour and expertise in cutting marine, road, bridge, and other building materials from polystyrene, for one of Australia’s leading polystyrene plants. We then acquired Polyurethane spraying equipment and branched out into supplying the building and constructions industries with various ‘render style’ coated building products.
What makes us experts in rendered building products such as acoustic fencing, retaining walls, Letterboxes, Sun Hoods, flooring & external cladding.
Poly-Tek is now one of the most trusted and recognised names in the manufacture and supply of Pre Rendered building products and modular acoustic fencing in Australia. In our hometown of Brisbane, we are the ‘go-to’ company for suppling builders, mining sites, government departments, and domestic clients with simple to install, cost effective product solutions.
