About Us

Founded 30 years ago by brothers Michael and John, the BORG group of companies originally began as Borg’s Kitchens, a small joinery business which started in the garage of their parents’ home. Today, the business has grown into a successful Australian manufacturing company, employing over 2000 people. With a commitment to Australian manufacturing, Borg Manufacturing has become one of Australia’s leading manufacturers of Melamine panels, Thermolaminated doors, particleboard, and components for all joinery applications, well known through the polytec brand. Alongside is Crossmuller, building world class manufacturing facilities from design through to construction, to mechanical, electrical, and engineering installation and commissioning. And with the addition of reDirect Recycling, the group now focuses on returning single source products to the manufacturing processes.

The business is driven by the two founders, who move quickly with the market and continue to use their entrepreneurial instinct to innovate and develop ahead of market trends. The company does not lend itself to hierarchical chains of command. In this fast-moving business culture, everyone has a voice no matter which part of the organisation they sit in.

The values and ethics of a “hands on”, tenacious, entrepreneurial private Australian business are at the core of our organisation and the company will continue to strive to be the leading participant in the sector, providing all stakeholders with the confidence that they are part of a successful, growing Australian business enterprise.
