In-Service History

Masons, the company started decades ago, with the company director Trent Mason (a third generation AUS bricklayer) seeing the need for quality bricklaying products in New Zealand. The Masons brand has since been built into a “go-to” brand for bricklaying tools and products in New Zealand. 

Masons, together with John Oliver, (author of John Oliver’s Brick Book) have brought to the market BrickLock 4mm, to strengthen brick veneer, walls and fences — an excellent product for areas that are prone to cracking or movement, such as above doors, windows and corners.
