The New Zealand office officially established in Penrose in 1937. The company's first major contract was for the exterior walls of the New Zealand Centennial Exhibition in Wellington in 1940. From the 1940s to 1981, the New Zealand plant went through several upgrades and additions in its manufacturing facilities.
In the mid-1980s, James Hardie pioneered the development of asbestos-free fibre cement technology, and began designing and manufacturing a wide range of fibre cement building products that made use of the benefits that came from the product's durability, versatility and strength.
