Our History

Originally established by Eric Cuckson as W.E. Cuckson and Sons, trading as Rondo Zipador Pty Ltd, selling zippers in 1959. Operating from premises in St Mary’s, NSW, Cuckson developed a thermal aluminium foil ceiling system to reduce the heat from the factory roof and improve employee working conditions, named ‘Rondo Foil’ and this later became a product that was manufactured, distributed and installed. A decade later, Cuckson was contacted regarding the manufacture of a concealed ceiling grid system, and this connection became the catalyst for the company as we know it today. 

 Early in 1965 USG Boral, then Australian Gypsum Ltd. (AGL), acquired 49% interest of the company. In 1970, CSR became a three-way venture partner before the current joint venture between USG Boral and CSR was established later that year.
