The Boral CSR Bricks joint venture, trading as PGH Bricks & Pavers, is now wholly owned by CSR, one of Australia’s most trusted and recognised brand names in providing building products for residential and commercial construction.
The Boral CSR Bricks joint venture was formed in May 2015 and combined the two companies’ brick operations on in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and the ACT.
On 31 October 2016, CSR announced it would acquire Boral’s interest in the joint venture.
Nick Pezet, executive general manager of PGH Bricks & Pavers said: “Over the last 18 months, we have worked closely with Boral to integrate the two businesses, delivering improvements in manufacturing, service delivery and range that benefit our customers.
“While it is business as usual for our customers, this transfer of ownership is an opportunity for PGH Bricks & Pavers to work closely with industry leader CSR to deliver more efficient operations and provide an even better customer experience, with access to CSR’s brands, digital expertise and innovation.”
CSR managing director Rob Sindel said: “This announcement also reaffirms CSR’s long-term commitment to brick manufacturing and the broader building products industry in Australia. By taking full ownership, we will benefit from new opportunities to drive operational efficiency as well as accelerate future property development projects.”
