The Laminex has completed eight decades of setting trends in the building industry.

Beginning 80 years ago as the creator of laminated resin timing gears for car engines, Laminex has, since then continually evolved to offer an expansive array of decorative surface solutions across both residential and commercial applications. Today, Laminex is widely regarded as one of the leading manufacturers and distributors of building materials in Australia and New Zealand.

Laminex Australia General Manager - Marketing, George Bej observes that Laminex has maintained its market and customer relevance through innovation, product development and a customer-centric strategy over the last 80 years.

Originally created and developed in Australia by Robert M Sykes, Laminex soon became a household name and remains one of Australia’s most highly recognised brands.

Through the 50s, 60s and 70s, Laminex led the market with stylish, attractive and resilient surfaces, developed and manufactured in Australia, and offering a clear alternative to products such as oil cloth, paint or vinyl.

Today, Laminex continues to be recognised by its peers as the pre-eminent design leader in decorative surfaces for both the domestic and commercial markets. The brand has been able to stay at the forefront of design by investing significantly in understanding global and domestic trends in fashion, decors, finishes and material technologies.

Laminex’s comprehensive product portfolio includes cabinetry, splashbacks and wall panelling solutions.
