Boral Roofing

About Boral Roofing

Boral began as an oil refinery business in Australia in February 1946. Throughout the decades they have partnered and acquired a number of companies and different industries across Australia, Europe, and the United States. Boral manufactures a wide range of construction materials, quarry products, cement, concrete, asphalt, and recycled materials. They have become the largest integrated construction materials company in Australia.

From the beginning, Boral has had an interest in international markets. In 1979 they acquired a 55% share of California Tile Inc. which was beginning to produce cement tiles for new builds in the state. With the number of fires affecting the standard timber roofing, Boral became interested in the new venture of fire-resistant materials. Standards for new construction changed in California and Boral bought California Tiles Inc. in 1980 to take advantage of the growing market.

Further expanding its concrete tile manufacturing, Boral acquired facilities in Lake Wales, Okeechobee, and Pompano Beach in Florida. Using locally sourced materials, they have supported the roofing industry in the area for over 60 years. Boral’s roof tile headquarters are located in Roswell, Georgia, and have design centers located in Fort Myers, Pompano, Orlando, and Tampa, Florida.

Recently, Boral acquired Headwaters Incorporated and has a 50% share in Meridian Brick. Meridian Brick has a further joint venture with Forterra Brick as of 2016. These acquisitions and joint ventures give Boral the opportunity to expand its product lines from clay and concrete roofing tiles to cladding, windows, and light building products.
