The Masons Plastabrick Story
Mason’s enviable reputation for innovation in exterior building products, is built on years of hands-on experience at the coal-face. Born into a family of bricklayers in Brisbane, Trent Mason, founder of Masons started his apprenticeship at the age of 15 with his father. But it was a working holiday that brought him to New Zealand and set him on a path to becoming a leading company in its field.
Trent initially saw a niche in the market to plaster brick buildings – hence the brand at the time – ‘Plastabrick’ – but rapidly progressed to manufacturing their own range of exterior plaster cladding systems and renders.
Recognising a gap in the market, the team developed the Masons Bricktie and Concrete Admixtures, becoming the largest seller of brick ties and the ‘go-to’ name for bricklaying tools and consumables in New Zealand.
Their range continued to grow – all with a focus on exteriors and the protection of the frame of the building from water and damp, including building wraps, brick ties, DPC, self-adhesive window tapes, concrete admixtures, wrap strapping, bituminous sealers, PEF rods and exterior plaster cladding systems.
It’s the small things that make a difference at Masons. Rather than put Masons BrickTies in a bag, they’re delivered in a bucket that can be reused in the building site. And there are always an extra 20 screws in the bucket because Trent knows that Brickies are always dropped screws down the cavity during installation.
In 2020/21 Masons innovation continues, with a number of exciting products set to hit the market, never before seen in New Zealand, so “stay tuned”! by joining our monthly newsletter.
