James Hardie empowers Aussie homeowners and building professionals to achieve their dream home with solutions that enable endless design possibilities and deliver trusted protection and long-lasting beauty. We employ a diverse workforce of over 450 employees across operations, manufacturing and research and product development in Australia.


“Our vision is to inspire how communities design, build, and grow today and tomorrow. We are proud to support and grow local manufacturing capability, help create jobs, strengthen local industries and bolster their surrounding communities,” said John Arneil, President of James Hardie Asia-Pacific.

Australian Made Chief Executive Ben Lazzaro said, “Aussie products are made to some of the highest standards in the world. They are trusted and known for their safety and quality. There is a huge appetite out there for Australian products, with country of origin increasingly playing an important part in purchasing decisions.

Roy Morgan research found that 68% of Australians have a preference for Australian-made building and renovation materials products. When you buy Australian Made products, you are helping to employ thousands of Australians across all areas of the supply chain, strengthen local industries and support local communities.”


James Hardie has been proudly providing Australian Made building products to the market for over 100 years, starting with just a handful of products. We now proudly produce a wide range of innovative fibre cement building material solutions across manufacturing facilities located in Rosehill, New South Wales, and Carole Park, Queensland.

One of our recent innovations, exterior cladding solution, Hardie™ Fine Texture Cladding, received a prestigious Good Design Winner Accolade in recognition of outstanding design and innovation at the 2022 Australian Good Design Awards.


“Our partnership with Australian Made is a symbol of our enduring support for local manufacturing and product innovation and we are excited to grow as a trusted innovator and industry leader in the Australian marketplace,” said Arneil.
