The Modern story begins in Adelaide, South Australia with a steam cleaning business.

In 1980

Ron Bayley acquired Bramalco Steam Cleaning for the grand sum of $5,000 in 1980. The business managed a turnover of about $70,000 each year over the next 7 years relying on the Yellow Pages for lead generation and referrals.

In 1987

1987 Ron Bayley developed more effective leads generation strategies to enable that part of the business to flourish.

In 1989

In early 1988 Bramalco Pty Ltd was formed, beginning South Australia’s newest and fastest growing business sector. Over the next 5 years, Ron’s drive and imagination saw rapid growth and diversification and recognised the need for efficient, effective management at the departmental level to ensure that effective delivery of product and service to the company’s growing customer base was maintained.

In 1992

A branch of Modern Roof Restoration was opened in Perth, Western Australia.

In 1994

With the introduction of Streamline Roller Shutters to the Perth operation. This required a large injection of cash for additional office space and a warehouse for roller shutter production.

In 1997

Modern Roof Restoration had added Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle, Wollongong and Central Coast NSW to its sphere of operations. A further $3 million investment in South Australia provided the Group with world class manufacturing facilities for roller shutters and ensured leadership in the Australian roller shutter market. A shutter assembly facility was added to the Sydney operation to accommodate the largest state market.

In 2006

Due to global demand to save the environment and ‘think green’, Modern embarked on some intensive research to enhance the environmental qualities of our existing products to ‘reduce their carbon footprint’. The results of this research were the launch of our heat reflective roof coatings called ‘Supa Block’ and the release of our second generation ‘Enviroblind’ Roller Shutters.

In 2009

Solar Hot Water came into picture, with this product Modern gave its customers the very real choice of using highly polluting and environment-damaging conventional electricity OR replacing some (or all) of this with clean, green electricity straight from the sun and into their homes.

Today, the Modern Group is the undisputed Australian market leader in Roof Restoration, Re-Roofing and Roller Shutters. It is a member of The Master Builders Association, The Housing Industry Association, ANZSES, ATA, ISES, BCSE and the Clean Energy Council. Modern proudly supports, through sponsorship, AFL in SA, NSW and WA as well as the Gold Coast United and Adelaide United of the soccer A-league.

The Modern Group is still intent on strong growth and diversification and has international expansion high on its agenda. Modern is committed to its customers and staff and is proudly Australian owned.
