In 1976 with 20 years industry experience Grahame Orchard launched Wallboard Tool Company as Australia’s first specialised tool supplier for the plasterboard industry. His vision was to provide Australian plasterers with a comprehensive range of trade quality tools that included iconic brands like Hyde Tools, Wallboard Tools, Telpro Panellifts, Premier Taping Tools, Trim-Tex and many more, all introduced by Grahame and Wallboard Tool Company. This vision also proved to be the foundation that led Wallboard Tools to become the largest supplier of specialty plasterboard tools in Australia.
Wallboard Tools represent the standard of excellence and leadership to the plasterboard trade. Continuing leadership is closely tied to two fundamental principles, dependable quality and jobsite performance. Job after job, tool after tool, Wallboard Tools quality proves itself daily on building sites throughout Australia.
We specialise in tools for the plasterers and our never ending effort to improve, develop and test new products has enabled us to be first with the latest and most advanced products.
We have earned the right to be first and are proud to know the tools we sell are #1 in quality, design and performance.
