TEXO Australasia commenced business in 1936 as Bly’s industries manufacturing wire products for telecommunications, automotive, mining and cleaning products including steel wool in fine and course grades.
In 1994 the business was acquired by the Broinowski family and changed its name in 2000 to VLP Products Pty Ltd. The company’s focus became the production of steel fibres for reinforcement in and crack control of concrete structures and for shotcrete in mine and civil tunnel linings.
The ReoCo Performance Fibres range was created and then extended to incorporate the development of polypropylene and aramid fibres. These fibres are used exclusively for reinforcing concrete and asphalt.
Our close relationship with Forta Corporation of the USA dates back from 2004.
In 2005 a patent was filed for our, revolutionary, Aquacomb ‘In Slab Water Storage System’. By 2006, the Company was producing and supplying the system for the Australian home construction industry and more lately for New Zealand.
In 2006, VLP purchased the Dunstone Maze Group of companies, which included MET Sundry Supplies and Lintel Supplies. These businesses provide specialised construction consumables for both the commercial building and residential markets.
In 2013, VLP changed its name to TEXO Australasia Pty Ltd and in 2014 consolidated all its business units at Prestons, New South Wales.
At TEXO we are concentrated on the activities of our customers and we continue to research and develop new products and markets to service our construction partners.
