Our vision, “Creating products that make buildings better” is one that we take very seriously. We make products that help form life spaces in which people work, learn and receive healthcare. The makeup of the products, the process by which they are made, and our behaviours are all led by our vision.

Quality at CS – Quality excellence is something every company strives for, almost all assert, but few can substantiate their claims to customers and prospective clients. Here at Construction Specialties Australia, our commitment to superior management systems is paramount. We achieved recognition of our international quality standard in 1997 and have been quality evangelists ever since.
ISO 9001 is the benchmark measure of a company’s quality management systems, with more than 1 million companies worldwide holding accreditation. We are proud to have been recognised against ISO 9001:2008 standards.
Whilst many companies possess ISO 9001:2008 certification, the main point of difference is how they adopt and implement quality principles within their businesses to meet ISO 9001 Quality Management Standards.
Our quality management standards are based on our core commitment to:
- Our customers: every client and project is different. We genuinely want to work with our customers in the most efficient way and deliver the right products on time, every time
- Quality products: as market leaders in the supply of specialty architectural building products we are committed to working with our clients to provide unique solutions to complex building problems and supply products of the highest quality standards
- Our people: having the right business tools in the hands of the right people can make dealing with us a much more pleasant experience. Our reputation for customer service excellence is unparalleled and envied by our competitors
- Operational excellence: as we continue to supply and develop high performance building products Australia wide, we are working hard to implement internal business systems that make doing business with us easier.
From people and processes through to our products, our continual improvement systems and practices adopted to meet ISO 9001 Quality Management Standards ultimately carries with it our guarantee to make buildings function more efficiently, look better and last longer.
Our environmental policy at CS – a policy that drives our profound commitment to create products that will contribute to lowering the environmental impact of every building they become a part of. But that’s only the beginning; that mindset drives every decision we make about how we run our business. We understand that we are only temporary stewards of this planet. Our future generations will have to live with decisions we make today.
