Who are ACP and how we began making concrete fence posts.

Richard Mould and Alan Theron are Directors of Australian Concrete Posts Pty Ltd, [ACP] and come with a wealth of experience in both farming and construction industries.

Richard Mould first came into contact making concrete fence posts with his father, Michael Mould. In 1978, Michael immigrated with his young family to Australia, and settled in regional northern NSW, where the family have lived ever since. All their worldly goods were contained in a few shipping containers. Included in one of the containers were several precast concrete moulds for concrete posts and fence panels.

In South Africa, Michael had farmed cattle, and like many farmers there, had made his own fence posts from concrete due to the limited supply of hardwood timber.

When Michael bought a farm in Alstonville NSW, it was fenced with old fashioned hardwood timber posts. In one section of the farm the posts had rotted because of the hard rock shelf and moist soil conditions.

Michael used his experience from SA and substituted the timber posts with long lasting concrete posts and today, 37 yrs later, they can still be seen standing in their original position.

37 years later the concrete fence posts are still in good condition and have never had to be replaced.

Richard Mould and Alan Theron have their own farms around Alstonville in regional Northern NSW. Both properties needed new fencing.

When Alan and Richard looked at the price of timber posts and the lack of guarantee for products from timber post suppliers, they began to question; “What was the smart alternative to a hardwood timber fence post?”

Metal posts just didn’t cut it. Acid sulphate soils will rapidly rust posts at ground level, and eventually require replacing when deteriorated.

Some concrete posts cracked and split when they were hit during installation. They only had a single reinforcing bar which did not allow for driving the posts.

Many of the posts they tried were far from the quality that they expected. After some research, Alan and Richard decided to manufacture the concrete posts for themselves. It was the only way they could get the quality assurance, strength, durability and cost effectiveness that they wanted. Surely many other farmers required the same thing? After hours of research, design and testing, ACP was born and a new, smart way of fencing is here.

Australian Concrete Posts have grown from strength to strength from it’s humble beginnings and look forward to a bright future. The company is now the biggest manufacture of prestressed concrete fence posts in Australia and strives to improve their products and service. They liaise closely with fencing contractors and property owners to deliver quality products that live up to the promises of a long life fence post. They continuously review and refine their manufacturing and business systems to ensure that their posts can be delivered efficiently. There is continuous effort to maintain and improve the high quality of innovation, service and products that has built the business to what it is today.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Quality Assured and Strength Tested

Australian Concrete Posts are proud to say they use major concrete suppliers to ensure that the mix is tested and recorded regularly by an independent testing laboratory. This ensures that there is accountability for all of the concrete components used, right from the excavation stage through to batch manufacturing and delivery.

Concrete is produced using the highest quality local materials enabling strengths up to 40 MPA for use in all our products – that’s 3 times stronger than normal concrete!

High compression strength concrete (40 mPa) and precise pre-tensioning of the reinforcing wire system ensures that the posts have enough strength to resist all test loads applied.

For some manufacturers the quality of the concrete is often inconsistent and certainly not verified, when it’s produced onsite by their own batch plant. This leaves production prone to errors depending on who’s mixing the batch of concrete on the day!

Further, some concrete fence suppliers and manufacturers have no independent controls in place to assure that inconsistencies are not overlooked during production. Click here to take a look for yourself what the inside of our post looks like compared to other manufacturers.

Another good reason to choose ACP as your concrete fence post supplier, as every batch is recorded regularly by an independent testing laboratory.

This level of quality assurance and accountability is required to meet NSW Roads and Maritime Specifications and Australian Concrete Posts Pty Ltd comply with these stringent guidelines. All concrete products from ACP are compliant with this high standard.

TESTIMONIALS

One of the most rewarding parts of our business is to receive he feedback from our clients who have chosen to use our posts on their properties… here’s just a few of them. Send us your feedback – we love to see what the finished fence looks like and to hear how the system worked for you.

“Very happy with the fence and the way it went up.  I have even made a large opening cockies gate using a long lever made from a pipe rail to get the tension and some of the brackets i have adapted.  Just like a real life meccano set.  I like that the brackets are adaptable for other purposes.”

“We finished building our new fence in March, but hard pressed to find a bright enough day for photos since then! Anyway, we’re very happy with the final result & there has been plenty of local interest which I am more than willing to tell anyone about. It is a very strong fence now. I’ve attached some photos for you. It’s been a pleasure doing business with you and hope to do so again in the future.
All the best & thanks again.”

” Thanks once again for holding our order for so long, and thanks for being such a great company. I didn’t ask, but if you have a corflute sign to put on our front fence, happy to put up. We’ll be back for more when needed 🙂 “
