Our Company

Gale Pacific Limited (Gale) is a trusted leading global marketer and manufacturer of branded screening and shading products for domestic, commercial and industrial applications.

Products are sold to a range of consumer and industrial markets including the retail and home furnishing, architectural, construction, and agribusiness markets. The products are designed to:

  • Protect people and outdoor living environments from the harmful effects of UV rays, hail and other adverse weather conditions

The Company's outdoor retail products are currently marketed worldwide under the 'Coolaroo' brand.  Major retail product lines include items such as shade fabrics, exterior window furnishings, gazebos, shade sails,  screening, synthetic turf, weedmat / garden covers, trellis / gutterguard, market and cantilever umbrellas, and a range of pet products.

Gale in more recent times expanded its retail offer with the acquisition of Zone Hardware & Highgrove Glass Solutions. This enabled the business to expand its range and breadth of products through the likes of indoor blinds, kitchen and bathroom storage items and cable management solutions under Zone. Highgrove Glass Solutions bought both expertise and an extensive range of glass products including pool fence, balustrading, shower screens, mirrors and kitchen splashbacks. . 

Gale currently sells its products in Australasia, the America’s, Japan, Europe, the Middle East, and a number of other export markets. The company’s knitted and woven products are principally produced from its modern manufacturing facilities in Ningbo, China.  Our specialty coated range is designed and created in Melbourne, Australia. The company also produces custom awnings in one of its facilities in the United States.
