Hutchinson Builders have survived more than 100 years in the building industry, turning over 1.15 Billion dollars, employing 1165 staff and managing some 174 projects under construction. An incredible achievement for a privately owned family company.

Thor Building Products manufactures the RHINO RANGE of Insulation a trusted name in the building industry for 17 years, supplying product to more than 20,000 construction sites Australia wide each year.

The national distribution network established by Thor Building Products with our Agent Partners has led to a capability of servicing both large and small companies in satisfying their insulation requirements.

‘In competing for this highly sought after contract Thor was able to demonstrate a superior level of service delivery and range which together with their price offer made a compelling value proposition for our business’ said Drew Wray Hutchinson’s National Procurement Manager. ‘We are excited about the 2 year agreement and like the fact that we are dealing with another family owned and operated Queensland Company’.

Steele Ryan, Managing director for Thor Building Products said ‘this contract is the largest the company has won, we have been steadily growing our national logistics and supply chain, expanding our team and agent network since moving into the bulk insulation space last year and this is a great reward.’

‘Underpinning the success of our team is a custom software application called Site Management System. We have invested in its development over the past 8 years, initially supporting our growth through the Government Stimulus Program and we now can rely on it to run our business lead generation, sales, orders, deliveries, and invoicing, automating administrative processes and providing clarity to our management team, in real time.’

‘The Hutchies Supply Contract is very exciting and demonstrates our commitment to expanding our RHINO RANGE and national business base. We are very happy with the results so far. Under this contract we will supply over 85 different items into more than 140 projects in regional and metro Australia.’
