About us

We are proud to announce that we have joined DMK Forest Products. Our warehouse & office is now at 15 Hurricane St, Banyo.

Colonial Wall Linings (Est. 1999), are suppliers of MDF VJ wall linings and manufacturers of MDF mouldings.

Our goal is to supply/manufacture high quality products and to provide prompt and efficient service to all of our customers.

  • More than 30 Years Experience in the Building Materials Supply Industry
  • Even though we specialise in colonial themed products, we can supply skirting, architraves, bulkheads and jambs for multi-storey commercial projects.

History of Colonial Wall Linings

In 1998, David Proberts and his Uncle Mike were inspecting hardwood decking that Mike had imported from New Guinea, stored at HF Palmer & Sons depot, Northgate. Dave recognised the people making MDF VJ sheeting on a Giben N32 beam saw in an adjacent workshop. After reacquainting himself, Dave agreed to start selling their product on a commission-only basis.

Shortly thereafter, an opportunity to buy this business resulted in David & Diane Proberts becoming the new owners and registering the name “Colonial Wall Linings”.

After a couple of years, the business was sold to Neil Miller.

A short time later, a continuous-feed, purpose-built “VJ” profiling machine was being auctioned by a liquidating company.

Dave approached Neil Miller with the proposal of buying the “VJ” machine at auction and re-entering the business as a 50/50 partnership. Neil agreed and we traded and grew the business until Neil retired in 2007.

In 2010, a full moulding production line was purchased & commissioned. Chris Gardiner (Australian Timber Mouldings) was the vendor and Chris was our first machinist. In 2012, Chris returned to Brisbane Saw Service. Emmett Byrne joined the business as our machinist, which now had three employees along with its working owners.

The business now manufactures and markets two niche products: MR MDF Wall/Ceiling Linings; and MR E0 MDF mouldings, targeting the renovating market. We also now have access to supply the full range of Easycraft VJ, Beaded & decorative wall linings.

Until March this year, we were employing six full-time staff. Now that we have joined DMK Forest Products, we are enjoying the huge depth of experience from almost sixty more management & staff members.
