From humble beginnings at the corner of Pakington and Maitland Streets in Geelong West in 1906
Our name is synonymous with quality tile & plastering products, superior workmanship, old fashioned service and value for money. While we deliver old fashioned service, Walkers extensive range of quality tiles, plaster, cornicing, insulation, cladding products and services offer the latest in technological advancement, materials style and finish.
Francis Charles Walker founded his modest plaster and tiling business over 100 years ago, with his four sons, Frank, Jack, George and Les all following in their father’s footsteps. FC Walkers then became FC Walker & Sons with ever expanding products and services, including as the first major contractor of plasterboard in 1963 (plasterboard was a radical product at the time).
Consolidating our operations into our showroom in West Fyans Street Newtown in 2001, cemented our position as an iconic Geelong tile & plaster company. Today Walkers continues the tradition of a family company, supporting local jobs with over 80 employees across our operations.
