Bristile Roofing Overview
Bristile Roofing has over 75 years experience manufacturing and installing quality roof tiles and has grown to become one of Australia’s largest manufacturers of terracotta and concrete roof tiles, offering an extensive range of colour and profile options designed to inspire creative home builders.
Our Proud History
The Bristile Roofing brand has been synonymous with the highest quality building products and services since the business’ inception in 1929 when Mr. Lance Brisbane established our terracotta division in Perth, Western Australia. The concrete tile range was first marketed in the late 1940’s and roof tiles, whether concrete or terracotta, quickly became the roofing material of choice due to their durability, profile variation and selection of colours.
In 1974, Besser Roof Tiles (as the company was then known) entered the market offering one tile profile in eight colours. In those days maximum output was 20,000 tiles per day. In time the company expanded into New South Wales establishing factories in Grafton and Sydney. The Pioneer group purchased the company in 1989 and oversaw further development over the next decade which included the incorporation of the famous Victorian brand Nubrik which had first made concrete tiles in 1972 under the Whitelaw Roof Tiles brand.
Today, these various roof tile companies, which first started serving the Australian market over 75 years ago, have combined. Now known as Bristile Roofing, we are one of the country’s largest suppliers of concrete and terracotta roof tile, producing up to 250,000 units per day from three plants and offering a comprehensive range of more than 40 colours and seven profiles. Bristile Roofing is now part of the proudly Australian Brickworks group of companies which includes other famous brands like Austral Bricks, Austral Masonry, Eureka Tiles Australia and Auswest Timbers.
