Renowned internationally for its acoustic, smoke and fire containment products for door assemblies, the Lorient Group is excited to announce the incorporation of a new subsidiary in New South Wales, Australia. With operations in North America, UK, Dubai, Singapore and Hong Kong – this news is set to further strengthen Lorient’s global position.

The Lorient brand is well established and respected in Australia, having had a presence there since 1986. Now operating out of new premises, Lorient is proud to be bringing its full range of high quality acoustic, smoke and fire sealing systems to the Australian and New Zealand markets.

With an exceptional knowledge of Australian Standards, as well as international building codes, the technical and commercial team provides unparalleled support. Access to Lorient’s technical and testing facilities means Australian customers benefit from opportunities to put new product development ideas to the test, before committing to often expensive external test programmes.

The new company Lorient Pty Ltd is located close to Sydney and will initially act as a sales and warehousing operation. Lorient has joined forces with a well-respected industry professional to run Lorient Pty Ltd – Kam Man Yee. Kam has a wealth of product knowledge and experience, having been at the helm of the Group’s Hong Kong business Lorient Pacific for many years.

Maria Simmonds, Lorient Group MD said: “We are delighted to establish a strong, knowledgeable team in Australia to offer first class technical support and after sales service to our loyal customers in this region. With a strong brand, identified throughout the world for its innovative products, technical excellence and attention to manufacturing detail, we’re convinced the Australian market will warmly welcome this extension of the Lorient family”.

2014 sees the 35 year anniversary for the Lorient Group, which has, during that time, created a considerable amount of intellectual property; in its brands, in its product designs, patents and test certification. Lorient Pty Ltd becomes the only authorised distributor of Lorient products in the region and it is has full and unlimited access to utilise all IP, including all Lorient product test certification .

Technical, sales and marketing activity is already underway in Australia; and the new operation is fully integrated into the Lorient Group. For further information please visit or email [email protected]
