ModularWalls launches new Head Office and Manufacturing Plant in style
The new Head Office and Manufacturing Plant of ModularWalls was proudly unveiled at the stunning Launch Event on 9th March, 2018. The company transformed their factory floor with lush foliage for the afternoon, with almost 200 guests celebrating this pivotal step in the company’s growth.

Olympic swimming silver medalist and TV personality, Elka Whalan, M.C.ed the event, with Local Federal Member and Federal Treasurer, Hon. Scott Morrison MP leading the official Opening Ceremony. A surprise aerial acrobatic performance by the mesmerising Natasha Usmar captivated guests during the formal speeches, with other notable VIP guests including Attorney General and Local State Member, Mark Speakman, and Mayor of Sutherland Shire Council, Carmelo Pesce.
Nick Holden, Founder & CEO of ModularWalls, also used this opportunity to express his deep gratitude of every person that had contributed to the growth and success of what had started out as a ‘one-man band’. The passion and excitement behind his work shone from every word; the cheek-splitting grin and twinkle in his eye speaking volumes.

This is the result of combining the potential of an individual idea, with the power of the collective drive; just look at what has been created.
The history of ModularWalls
With innovative product design, sophisticated engineering and highly scalable manufacturing capabilities; ModularWalls is a Sutherland Shire business demonstrating that Australian manufacturing can not only survive, but thrive.
Founded in 2002 following a successful debut on the ABC’s New Inventor’s program by Nick Holden, ModularWalls was born. Since then, it has grown rapidly into an Australian manufacturing success story. Further building on the success of the residential DIY modular wall, the business invented a suite of new commercial products; most notably, impact-resistant barrier panels for and highly acoustic sound absorption panels for Road & Rail.
Using a combination of local invention, local engineering, local workforce and locally sourced materials, the business has accelerated its rapid national expansion, with emerging exports to NZ, US and UK. The business also continues to invest heavily in Research & Development, including significant investment in automation and technology.
Furthermore, ModularWalls continues to expand its workforce, from 28 people to over 50 during the past 3 years. This is alongside a growing network of 1500+ contractors and Trade Partners that also service ModularWalls customers throughout Australia. From its humble beginnings in a small factory in Taren Point, ModularWalls has now officially launched their new ‘state of the art’ manufacturing plant on a 5,000 SQM site in Kurnell.
