Since 1985, QIC has been providing a quality service in commercial, industrial and mining roof and wall cladding. In February 2004, Drew Carruthers and Lachlan Pegler purchased the company and embarked on a program of expansion, whilst maintaining QIC’s reputation for quality workmanship and superior project management. QIC regularly employs around 20-25 roof plumbers and additional managerial and administrative staff. Projects are undertaken in numerous locations throughout the Australia-Asian-Pacific region.

Queensland Industrial Cladding Projects have expanded from Brisbane to Perth, Townsville, Mt isa, Moura, Gladstone, Mackay, Moranbah, Emerald, The Surat Basin, The Bowen Basin, Dalby, Oakey, Narrabri, Orange, the Hunter Valley,Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.

We have supplied and installed quality materials from Stramit, BlueScope, Kingspan roof and wall panel, Ritek roof panel, Durra acoustic panel and other rockwool and glasswool acoustic build up panels to projects such as Darling Downs Power, Braemar Power, Neerabup Power and Narrabri Coal to reduce acoustic emissions. We have worked on projects in the mining, gas & energy sector all over Australia, and we look forward to providing our services to future projects.
