Other Lysaght Sites

Having transitioned to an online business model in 2014, Lysaght customer, Metalroofing Online, found itself in an enviable position when COVID-19 took effect in Australia in March 2020.

Selling a full range of LYSAGHT® roofing and cladding products, rainwater goods and associated materials, Lillian Lee who started the business with husband Darren Swaine, said the last 18 months had been extremely busy.

“Demand was strong from the time we started the online business, but the last 18 months in particular has been amazing,” Lillian said.

With only one main customer-facing location on Melbourne’s picturesque Mornington Peninsula, Metalroofing Online is reliant on Lysaght to directly distribute the building products to Metalroofing Online’s customers wherever in the country they’re located.

This close partnership with Lysaght is one that actually began some 20 years ago when Lillian and Darren opened their first ‘traditional’ shop.

“I remember when we applied for an account with Lysaght and were successful, I was over the moon,” Lillian said.

“We were very proud to be associated with them – Lysaght has always been known as a market leader, as being professional and having high quality products. We feel the same way about Lysaght today as we did 20 years ago.”

Lillian said that her company services a range of customers, from ‘DIYers’ to builders and large construction companies, who are attracted by the convenience of online ordering.

“CUSTOM ORB® corrugated cladding is our most popular seller, it’s a product that’s widely used across all buyer types,” she said.

“We’re really pleased to offer our customers an Australian-made range, it’s really important for us.

“When you combine the quality of the product range, the fact that Lysaght has been manufacturing in Australia for 100 years, and the professionalism of their team, we thoroughly enjoy the partnership and value the close relationship.”
