Administrative history

Pioneer Concrete Services Limited was incorporated in New South Wales on 10 October 1956, and later listed on the Sydney Stock Exchange as a public company in 1959. The Australian based multinational company had operations in 16 countries around the world producing high quality pre-mixed concrete and quarry products, and was one of the largest suppliers of building materials worldwide. In 1961 the company made its first move overseas commencing operations in Hong Kong. In 1962 it began operations in the United Kingdom followed by growth in other parts of Asia and Europe, and into the United States in 1978. In 1980 the company acquired AMPOL Limited as a subsidiary, later moving to ownership in 1988. From 5 January 1989, the company changed its name to Pioneer International Limited to reflect the company's operations in Australia and overseas. The company was taken over by Hanson Australia Proprietary Limited on 24 May 2000.
