Proudly manufacturing wall and ceiling systems in Australia since 1964, Rondo began from extremely humble beginnings.
On a mission to improve employee working conditions and reduce the heat that radiated from the roof of a factory that once manufactured clothing zippers, the thermal aluminium foil ceiling system was designed. Now, over 55 years later, the Rondo steel roll-forming business continues to prosper across markets in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Middle East.
Manufacturing and distributing a broad range of Australian Made roll-formed steel products for wall, ceiling and building façade framing applications, Rondo’s products and systems are supplied to an array of major building projects, including residential towers, hospitals, hotels, educational facilities, entertainment precincts and airports.
Greg Thomas, Executive General Manager at Rondo, believes that manufacturing products in Australia has many benefits, including the positive assurance it provides customers.
Mr Thomas said, “Providing customers with products of the highest quality and innovation is the driving force at Rondo. Although it may sometimes prove cheaper to offshore the manufacturing of our locally produced products, the benefits of manufacturing these products in Australia far outweigh the costs. Moreover, the highly regulated nature of the Australian market reduces potential liabilities for all parties involved, giving our contractors the confidence they deserve.”
Acknowledging the recognition and trust that the famous green and gold Australian Made kangaroo carries within the industry, Rondo joined the Australian Made Campaign in 2020, with a key focus on supporting the Australian economy and providing more Australians with jobs.
“Manufacturing in Australia is an important aspect of the Rondo brand. Having over 800 products certified as Australian Made communicates to the market that when purchasing from Rondo, you are buying quality, compliant products, that support jobs within the local community,” said Mr Thomas.

With product development, testing, quality control and system engineering all done in Australia for the local market conditions, customers have the ultimate security when purchasing from Rondo.”
Mr Thomas said, “We have spent over 56 years fine tuning every single detail of our service offering to ensure we continually provide the highest quality, most innovative product. Backing our products with outstanding technical and customer support is an essential aspect of the Rondo service.
