Our Journey

Whilst we are celebrating 100 years of manufacturing in Australia, the Lysaght journey started over 150 years ago when our founder, John Lysaght, saw potential in corrugated iron sheeting, and started exporting it to Australia under the trademark ‘ORB’.

The Lysaght story wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the contribution made by so many people. Discover how the stories of our people define our proud heritage & position us for the next 100 years. Thank you to all our staff for being part of the celebrations.
