Formplex Weatherboards have been National Leaders in the Exterior Cladding industry since 1981. Keith Murphy started Formplex in 1981 with the philosophy to give clients an all Australian made building product that didn't require painting and that was well insulated. A product that could withstand our harsh Australian conditions, but also be aesthetically appealing.

The Murphy Family have all shared in the Formplex Story helping this family owned business run from the warehouse management to quoting builders and owner plans, helping at home shows and in the office and installing the board. This has helped to grow the company to the well known brand it is today.
The all Australian company became a household name by having clad well over 60,000 homes Australia wide.  You might remember Neville Crowe from our commercials, (pictured above).   "Ah G'day, Throw away your paintbrush, Formplex is Forever, Never Paint Again!"

We began with Ecotuff and Supatuff, added Palliside to the range and then delivered what we believe the market wanted and needed, ExcellBoard SP, a maintenance free uPVC type 1 building board for the new home and renovation market.
We kept being asked about a traditional shape so we've recently re-introduced the Formplex Supersystem range. It comes in 9 great colours and is supported by a 13mm high density foam insulation base.

The Formplex Family

When you contact Formplex you will be pleasantly surprised in this day and age to find that most of us have been here for a very long time.  In fact we are such a close family that some of us have been with Formplex for over 35 years so we can offer you our qualified experience and knowledge  to assist you in any way we can.
That reassurance is there for you when you are doing your extension and want to match your board, when you move house and want to Formplex it too - we keep our product lines.  It says something about the company when the staff is a happy family and adds to the level of care you receive as our client.
You don't have to have 'Murphy' as your surname to join the Formplex Family - so if you're thinking about joining the team - contact us - we value talented staff and would be happy to discuss your future with us.  Phone 1800 038 145 or email
