Vicbeam has been manufacturing and supplying timber beams for a multitude of different applications in the construction industry for over 15 years, working with many merchants and wholesalers across Australia during this time.
Vicbeam also works closely on a project by project basis with engineers, architects and builders from the concept and design stage all the way through to manufacturing, in house pre-fabrication and on-site installation.
At Vicbeam we provide a solution focused, collaborative approach to our service offering and pride ourselves in building solid and committed relationships with our suppliers and clients.
We nurture a dedicated and responsive team out of a manufacturing location in Bayswater, Victoria where we reference our values daily and endeavour to maintain a focus on safety, quality and continuous improvement.
Where it all started
In 2003 we realised that suppliers were failing their customers, not taking on the harder projects in laminated timber beams – there was a niche ready to be filled.
Andrew Wallace seized the opportunity as he had already been creating glulam works in Australia since the 80s, well ahead of the popularity we now see for the product.
While erecting glulam structures internationally, Andrew created a ‘can do’ attitude and a culture of strong constant innovation. Sons Joshua, Caleb and Tim have joined Andrew to make this a family values business.
Andrew worked on many major projects, including a pivotal one-year project in Hong Kong. The Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club (1991) took over a year at which time Andrew and his family relocated to Hong Kong where his expertise was required for several years.
What’s our guarantee to you?
Whenever we have problems with our product we are well known to get out on site at our expense and fix them. We don’t need to fall back on a standard or a guarantee because we go the extra mile and we reference our values daily.
