An Inspired Vision:

Brian’s Story

In 1987 Brian Carpenter, Castec’s founder, was sold a new idea for shoring basement car parks. At the time he was working as a developer in Double Bay, but immediately recognised the concept’s potential and began devoting resources towards its development. This new approach to trenching was not widely accepted among industry experts, who said the concept wasn’t practical.

The technology, still in its infancy, was sent to the United States in 1989 to be explored further by a sub-contractor of Caterpillar. After eight years, and having invested more than $10 million in the project, Brian purchased the rights to the unproven technology and brought it back to Australia. His design was tested for two years domestically before being commercialised in 1999. Brian spent the next 15 years of his life utilizing the technology, before ultimately selling the company to develop an even faster and more efficient model, using the same technology.

Since 2008, Brian has worked alongside mechanical engineers, hydraulic engineers and specialised machine manufacturers to develop his latest creation: the Castec Wall System. The machine, more than two decade in the making, is the fastest, lightest and most adaptable shoring tool in Australia. It’s ability to excavate and cast concrete simultaneously has set new efficiency standards for speed, precision and environmental friendliness.

So, while Castec may appear unfamiliar to some, its introduction has been almost 30 years in the making. The company is proud to be recognised as an industry trailblazer and credits its innovative approach as an essential component to developing the world’s most advanced Shoring products. Castec is now manufacturing and commercialising the Castec System for use in Australia, as well as the international market. Its preliminary application has exceeded all expectations to date.

go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
