A Message from

ASKIN CEO, Steve Clarke

ASKIN Performance defines a unique level of service excellence based on cutting edge panel technology.

The strength of the brand is derived from the sum of its parts: local organisations across Australia and New Zealand made up of highly dedicated individuals who work closely with their clients as specialists in their field, applying the most advanced panel technology to achieve exceptional results. This level of dedication and quality is captured by one word: PERFORMANCE.

ASKIN’s History

In April 2013 the company formally known as Austral Australia rebranded to ASKIN as part of a strategic approach to capture the very essence of what it stands for. ASKIN’s primary activity consists of the manufacture of insulated panels and installation and construction of temperature-controlled buildings, facades and roofing. ASKIN is the brand that links a cluster of Australian and New Zealand subsidiaries – formerly part of the Austral Group of Companies.

The first of these companies, Austral Insulation Panel Pty Ltd, was established in Victoria in 1964. Shortly after Austral Insulation Western Australia was established in 1969. From 2000 onwards, the Austral Group of Companies was expanded through a series of selected acquisitions and business developments of other insulated panel manufacturers and installers.
