Community is Important

Mark and Rob Nalder, Directors of Independent Portable Buildings made the decision to move the business to the Central Coast in 2010. Previously, the IPB business was located in Mulgrave, Western Sydney, with the rationale behind the move being a simple one, as explained by Rob “we had always had holiday homes on the coast and found ourselves, as a family, spending more and more time in the area, so we thought why not move the business to where we want to be”

IPB set up shop in Gavenlock Road, Tuggerah in early October 2010, where the business went through a major growth period.

Before long, IPB outgrew the factory in Tuggerah and purchased a large commercial facility on Mann’s Road, West Gosford and also leased land in Ourimbah.

“We have made a lot of changes to our West Gosford yard. Increased the yard storage capacity and upgraded the facilities. It’s been a great move” The traffic volume that pass us each day is phenomenal, more than 75,000 vehicles a day travel through the Central Coast Highway intersections at Brisbane Water Drive and Mann’s Road.

We are trying to build closer working relationships with the community and work with local construction companies and retail outlets. Our core business is predominately targeted to the commercial trade sector. Our clientele is generally in civil construction, mining and infrastructure.

The Central Coast has so much going for it. The development plans for the Gosford Waterfront transformation can’t come quick enough. The road improvements and infrastructure is going to bring more business and bigger companies to this emerging area.

Employing local trades and professionals is important to us. We like to provide opportunities to surrounding companies by using local suppliers for our products. We support the Shop Locally and Support your community campaign and we are 100% Australian Owned and operated since 1994. We have put a number of young adults though Apprenticeships, as well as Traineeships from Office Administration to Electricians & Carpenters.
