Company History

The Early Days - Brisbane

Over 30 years ago while working as a sales represenative with Bradford Insulation, I recognised the need to establish a service to supply and install Bradford Gold Batts into people's homes. This was unheard of back then.

I was the first person in Queensland to do this type of work. Not only did I quote each job in the morning, but in the afternoon I would install the batts myself. I slept well at night! Over the years the business expanded to provide other services and other insulation products. We now supply the full product range to all different markets.

During the next two decades, along came many other so-called "innovative" insulation products, and I have installed most of them. (Many of which are not available now). However as time proven again and again, the Bradford Gold Batts still remain the best value for money, hassle free product with proven results.

We now do work for many major builders and government departments, so it is important the products we use enhance our reputation.

Another lesson I have learnt over the years is the best way to provide consistent, reliable service is to employ my own men, train them and constantly check their work. This philosophy may cost more upfront, but the long-term benefits outweigh the initial expenditure.

With more people now aware of the benefits of insulating their homes, and with the right products and service, I believe we will continue to be busy well into the future.

Gold Coast History

CSR Bradford Insulation opened its first Gold Coast branch in 1969 at Southport and appointed me as their first Manager. Believing that the growth of the '70's would escalate during the 80's, I bought an Insulation Company which was also the Bradford Home Insulation installation outlet.

In 1989, I joined forces with Lloyd Marchant's Austral Insulation Brisbane to form Austral Insulation Gold Coast. Nerang was thought the ideal location from which to serve the Gold Coast, and the company is firmly based in our own premises at 22 Indy Court.

Together with selling the highest quality Australian Made Products, Austral Insulation's real strength is its people. Turnover of staff is virtually nonexistent. This means we provide our clients surety of service; we know our area and its requirements; we know the performance of our products.

We deliver the service our clients know they can rely on....... every time.

A Few Extracts From Letters Received by Satisfied Clients...

"Thankyou very much for your wonderful service. Your staff arrived exactly on time, each time they were expected, looked very clean and smart and were very efficient and friendly - and cleaned up after. Please pass on my compliments to everyone concerned. Once again, thank you all so much - ROLL ON SUMMER!
Nola Donaldson (Annerley)

"I am very happy with the difference it has made to the efficiency and effectiveness of my air-conditioner. I would ask for a sales fee;as I have two staff who have had our insulation installed. I have two neighbours who may contact you for quotes and another two people who have seen and felt the difference. They are considering insulation."
