Established in 1970 by Henry Donohue, Capeview Building Products started off as a small business employing a dozen workers to supply building products to Henry’s existing business, Coldon Homes.
Henry loved challenges and working hard. He had a fierce work ethic and determination. He founded Coldon Homes in Wonthaggi in the late 1950s after running a local house removal business. Within 20 years it had become the largest builder of homes in regional Victoria, and one of the nation’s leading volume builders.
As Capeview Building Products grew, so did our reach, and it wasn’t long before we began supplying local builders, owner builders and home renovators with the quality products they needed.
Our basic machinery from our humble beginnings has now advanced to state of the art machines, but some things still remain today - such as our association with Mitek (formerly Gang Nail) for almost five decades, who consider us to be pioneers in the industry.
Today, Capeview Building Products is still a proud, family-run business located in the heart of Bass Coast employing 60 staff members from the local area.
Our aim also remains the same as it did when Henry first began the business all those years ago - to provide good quality products at a competitive price, and employing local people to do so.
