The search for talent has never been more important as businesses around the globe look to embrace the changing environment and strengthen their position with quality product and the very best people.

About Laminex Australia

We’ve been a part of the iconic Australian design landscape for over 85 years. Only a few short years after Australian’s became happy little Vegemite’s, families were spreading their toast in kitchens and on tables made by us. We’ve come a long way. 

Today, you’ll see Laminex on surfaces everywhere you look - be it hospitals, shopping centres, restaurants or your home, our team spend their day making products so that all Australians can create beautiful and practical spaces.
