LOCAL manufacturing company Civilmart is growing in leaps and bounds, which can be seen by the opening of a brand new $35M facility in Geelong recently.

The Civilmart Group is a privately owned company with its head office located in Shepparton, which consolidates a growing portfolio of precast concrete brands dedicated to the civil and construction industries. The company has acquired a suite of brands, including Tellam, Toowoomba Tanks and CM Concrete in QLD, BCP in NSW, CPC in SA, plus MC Pipes and Icon-Septech in Victoria, with Civilmart Geelong its first major development.

The introduction of the Corio factory enables more efficient access to customers in western Victoria.

The new Geelong facility comprises 10,000 square meters of manufacturing infrastructure on a 12.5 acre block and utilises state-of-the-art German technology.

The extensive catalogue at the Geelong facility includes products for the civil, rural, electrical, wastewater, plumbing, trade waste and water storage industries. You’ll find everything from water and feed troughs, pits and risers, covers and grates, pipes and headwalls to access chambers and septic tanks. Civilmart also specialise in reinforced concrete pipes, box culverts and lightweight glass reinforced concrete pits and risers. Custom product manufacturing is also available.

State manager VIC and SA Brett Warburton said, “We made the decision to open the facility in Geelong because we already have a strong presence in the western Victoria region and have also acquired an existing business in Adelaide. Outside of Victoria we have 14 factories, with a manufacturing network delivering Australia wide.

The new facility in Geelong enables us to better service our customers in western Victoria. You can buy any of the Civilmart standard product range out of Geelong.”

Civilmart Geelong branch manager, Stephen Nixon said the manufacturing capacity at the Heales Road site was impressive.

“We use the highest-grade materials, and combined with the Melbourne and Shepparton factories, we can service more clients, more often, more competitively. We are now open, the yard is stocked, I have a large range of our precast products now available for delivery,” Mr Nixon said.

“At many of our direct-to-public factories across Australia, you’ll also find a Civilmart Warehouse, selling civil and trademans’ supplies from leading brands like Ox Tools, Masterfinish, Flextool and Davey pumps. You can pick up tools, pumps, cement, star pickets, wheelbarrows, sealants and silicone, concrete adhesives, shovels and screeds, spray paints, safety cones and barricades, irrigation supplies and much more. The warehouses are open Monday to Friday, 7am to 4:30pm.”
