A history of family, innovation and growth

Langs Building Supplies has changed a lot since Bob Lang founded it in the 70s. But our values and commitment to delivering the highest quality products and services have always stayed the same.

1976

As a builder, Bob Lang was frustrated at how difficult it was to get his hands on quality timber and building supplies. He started a timber operation in his backyard to fill the gap in the south-east Queensland building market.

1980s

With only two staff members, sales started to grow and Bob moved the operation from his backyard to Main Street in Beenleigh. By 1985, Lang Brothers Timber grew to become the main building supply shop for local builders.

1990

Bob saw opportunities to expand beyond timber and became Langs Building Supplies. He built a 10-acre frame and truss manufacturing plant at Stapylton.

1999

Bob continued to grow the site at Stapylton and eventually moved the entire operation there, and sold the Beenleigh site.

2000

We built an aluminium window and joinery manufacturing plant at the Stapylton site, complete with a showroom for customers.

2005

We built a bigger and better warehouse so all timber products could be under one roof. This freed up more space and the hardware retail store stocked an even wider range of products.

2017

After many years of sustained growth in Stapylton, we opened a new location in Caloundra so builders north of Brisbane have access to all of the same services.

Present

We have been planning a new site in Ipswich and we’re excited to open in 2019.
