GP Embelton and Co was founded in 1925, and publicly listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 1957. The company operates in two main industries; timber flooring and noise & vibration isolation, with further manufacturing operations in cork, rubber and metals fabrication.
Headquartered in Coburg, Victoria, the company employs 83 people nationally, and operates branches in Melbourne (x2), Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, with more than 6,000m2 of warehouse space. Embelton also has a number of key distribution relationships for its vibration control products in Asia and New Zealand.
The company works with leading acoustical consultants, structural design engineers, architects, builders, and installers to design and supply solutions for both noise and vibration control and timber flooring. Its products are found in a number of major projects across Australia, Asia and the Middle East, and over many years, Embelton has forged a reputation for quality, service and engineering innovation.
Embelton is one of Australia’s largest wholesale distributors of hard floor coverings, sold through an extensive network of flooring retailers. The company is a preferred supplier to leading flooring groups such as Choices, Andersens, Floorworld, Flooring Xtra and the Woolset Group.
In February 2011, the company won The Age/D&B Victorian Business Award in the export/wholesale category, due to the efforts of its flooring division.
