Following the purchase of the Knauf metal and plasterboard business by the Etex Group in 2021, our business was renamed to Etex Australia Pty Ltd, and all products and services changed to Siniat branding.
Siniat is one of the Etex Group’s flagship commercial brands and one of the leading global manufacturers of interior and exterior materials for drywall construction.
New products leaving the Etex Australia factories are now Siniat branded and customers will notice new signage at distributors of Siniat products and all company sites. And of course the website has changed too.
Siniat still offers the same products, same excellent service and support by the same people. But the changeover provided us with the opportunity to explore how our business could be a better partner and assist clients to build better, together.
“We welcome this opportunity to start afresh,” said Managing Director Gavin Burton at the time of the launch. “While we are not changing our locally made products or our trusted technical services in any way, it is the ideal moment to think about how we can improve our product offering and services.”
Siniat is forever looking at ways to increase current sustainability initiatives. “We were the first plasterboard manufacturer to offer carbon neutral certified board to the market. We have since extended the carbon neutral opt-in program, certified by Climate Active, to a wide range of metal and plasterboard products manufactured in Australia, and it is available to customers who participate in our carbon free opt-in program,” Gavin said. More information about the opt-in program here.
“Under Siniat we will continue to explore ways to make construction more sustainable, and we are looking forward to working together with clients to ultimately help them build better.
