The ARDEX Group comprises of 47 subsidiaries and some 2,500 employees active in offices and branches in more than 50 countries.
The history of ARDEX can be traced back over 60 years to Witten, Germany where ARDEX Chemie GmbH was founded. Products such as Ardit Z 8 and Ardur K 15 are firmly established as benchmarks for flooring products worldwide.
In December 2001 ARDEX acquired Norcros Building Products (NBP) Australia. The latter has a similar heritage in the Australasian market with ABA tile adhesives- renowned for their quality and technical excellence, a reputation built over 40 years. Innovations such as Abaflex are unique in the market until this day. Other brands offered by NBP Australia include Superflex under-tile waterproofing systems, Shelter (previously Dunlop) sheet membrane systems and Hydrepoxy coatings. In 2002 Vibro Products Pty Ltd, manufacturers under licence of ARDEX floor levelling and adhesives, was acquired and integrated into ARDEX Australia.
These brands, leaders in their respective fields, come together under the ARDEX Australia umbrella, offering you expert solutions. In addition, sharing of resources and technology within our extensive network enables us to provide you with a broader range of world benchmarked products and services.
Make ARDEX your single point of contact for all your flooring, tiling and waterproofing needs.
