Holcim (Australia) is a leading supplier of aggregates, concrete (readymix) and concrete pipe and products, and has been delivering construction materials since 1901.
Holcim operates right across the Australian continent supplying concrete from a network of more than 150 concrete plants, 900 mixer trucks and mobile and on site facilities – as well as 12 precast concrete factories. Their 65 quarry operations provide consistent, quality products for a diverse range of customers and applications and their contracting business services serve major mining and infrastructure projects.
Established in 1992 by husband and wife, Gordon and Susan Tait, Tait began in a small factory in Melbourne, Australia. Gordon, a sheet metal craftsman, and Susan, a creative textile designer, noticed an absence for well-designed, well-made outdoor products – both reflective of Australia’s enviable outdoor lifestyle and built to withstand the harsh Australian elements.
Collaborating with a legion of Australia’s most influential and prominent design talent, including, Adam Goodrum, Justin Hutchinson, Trent Jansen and Adam Cornish; Tait have produced a number of iconic collections, renowned for their originality, functional design and longevity.
Tait’s products encourage new ways of thinking about how we live outdoors. Tait believe that good design can enrich our relationship with the outdoors and have a profound impact on our wellbeing. Enjoying coffee in the morning sun, lazy afternoons lounging poolside and lively family barbecue’s at twilight, life’s beautiful moments are made outside.
