The AM Group has evolved from Monsoon Industries, which was founded in 1972 by Mr Matthew A. Baxter. Monsoon Industries started as a manufacturer of roller shutters for truck bodies. Over time it developed a wide range of roller shutter products for commercial and industrial buildings.
In 1986 Monsoon Industries acquired one of its major Sydney competitors – Austral Roller Shutters Pty Ltd – and this is the basis of the Austral Monsoon brand name.
Australian operations then expanded geographically from Sydney through the establishment of branch offices and business acquisitions associated with roller shutter products. Other acquisitions have provided the opportunity to expand and diversify the products offered by the Group.
Our Australian operations now comprise 6 unique manufacturing businesses with subsidiary branch offices in all states.Our primary activity is manufacturing proprietary metal based products for the commercial and industrial building markets and truck body/trailer industry.
We also provide repair and maintenance services for commercial and industrial door products covering both our own proprietary products and those of our competitors.
Manufacturing facilities are located in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide and are complimented by branch offices or resellers throughout the country.
Australian sales constitute approximately 60% of total AM Group revenue.
