Our History

In 1995 the vertical dry cast pipe manufacturing process was brought to Australia and adapted to produce steel reinforced concrete pipes for the Australian market. Following a period of expansion Reinforced Concrete Pipes Australia Pty Ltd (RCPA) was formed in 2009 as a result of the merger between Reinforced Concrete Pipes (RCP) and Australasian Pipeline & Pre-Cast (APP). This merger resulted in the only national supplier of wall steel reinforced concrete pipe that is vertically cast and solely Australian owned and operated.

Major investments in high technology machinery by RCPA has created a significant alternative supplier to those producers using traditional spun pipe and precast production in Australia. The constant drive for innovative products and processes, RCPA not only incorporates many production efficiencies of the “dry cast method” but also minimises environmental impact and the usage of power in its factories throughout Australia. A faster, more flexible and efficient manufacturing process allows us to offer shorter lead times and a very responsive customer service.

In 2015, RCPA acquired the fibre-reinforced concrete pipe division of James Hardie. Now known as FRCPipes, this product range extension gives RCPA a unique product offer including a range of specialty drainage systems across Australia.

RCPA has plants located in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane & Perth as well as partnering with local leading civil precasters in Adelaide, Canberra, Tasmania and Darwin.

RCPA are focused on tailoring our product or service to individual customer needs, big or small. Our commitment to exceeding expectations is paramount to the success of RCPA.
