Our Product Range
Monier and Austral Bricks have a proud history of brickmaking spanning over 100 years.
Just as clay bricks helped to build the new colony in 1788, creating the first manufacturing industry, Monier and Austral Bricks have led the industry into the 21st century.
NZ Brick Distributors was formed in April 2013 as a joint venture between CSR (Monier) and Brickworks (Austral Bricks). This joint venture is responsible for the selling and distribution of both the Austral Bricks and Monier brands range of clay brick products. Further to this, NZ Brick Distributors also sell a number of additional products such as Designa Schist, Designa Basalt, Natural Stone and Terrazzo concrete pavers
NZ Brick Distributors is jointly owned by CSR and Brickworks. These two companies are among the largest building products manufacturers in Australasia and are both publically listed on the Sydney Stock Exchange.

Think Brick New Zealand
We are proud to be a member of Think Brick New Zealand, the peak brick industry body.
The organisation, fully funded by brick manufacturers in New Zealand, is responsible for the development and dissemination of technical material based on comprehensive research.
Think Brick New Zealand facilitates research often in collaboration with major universities and bodies such as the University of Auckland already resulting in valuable information for the brick industry.
The organisation’s authoritative technical manuals are widely used in building design and construction.
Think Brick New Zealand also encourages the use of brick by architects and specifiers in residential and commercial architecture through specialised awards. This has already resulted in new ways to design and build with brick.

NZ Brick Distributors is a very active member within Think Brick New Zealand as we believe its program of research and development is essential to the better use of bricks for consumers and the construction industry.
