Studco is now nationally acclaimed as the leading innovators of smart building products. As our valued clients will testify, out exceptional customer service has been the leading benchmark within the building industry for just as long.

Here’s a few of Studco’s innovative ideas that have shaped the construction industry…
EZY-REVEAL - Steel window reveals that enhance durability and save time.
EZY-CAP - fast and easy finishing of wall ends with one-piece end cap
RESILMOUNT - patented sound isolation technology

SLIMCEIL - patented low-clearance ceiling system

From humble beginnings in 1986 as a steel stud roll former in Melbourne, Australia, Studco has developed into a truly global manufacturer of premium building systems for the commercial and residential construction industry.

In 1976 Gordon Stevens, an experienced carpenter from Melbourne, Victoria, launched a new venture called Specialized Ceiling Systems, an enterprise that focused on acoustic ceiling design and installation throughout the Australian commercial building market. He consistently demonstrated a flair for finding new and innovative ceiling products to introduce to the Australian market and his services quickly became highly sought-after.
After a few successful years, Specialized Ceiling Services was sold and he embarked on a bold, new project of manufacturing T-bar ceiling systems under his brand name, Duraclamp. This venture quickly established itself in the Australian market as a premier manufacturer of state-of-the-art ceiling systems, and in 1986 Duraclamp was acquired by USG (United States Gypsum) and rebranded as Donn Duraclamp.

Following the successful sale to USG, Gordon remained committed to innovation in the field of building systems for the commercial construction industry and as a result Studco was born in late 1986.

In 2000, Studco introduced Ezy-Jamb to the Australian market, an innovative world first door jamb that was flush finished and did not require architraves or trims. Ezy-Jamb put Studco on the global radar for innovation and today, Ezy-Jamb has grown into an internationally acclaimed brand and now resides under the overarching EZConcept brand with Studco’s other revolutionary flush finishing products such as Ezy-Reveal, Ezy-Cap and Ezy-Pelmet.

For the next five years, Studco experienced dramatic growth and in 2005 on a trip to the United States looking for new business growth opportunities. It was decided that the perfect location to launch Studco into the North American market was Rochester, NY. 

Studco’s global presence accelerated the drive for innovation and in 2008, Studco created the Resilmount brand to meet the demand for economical sound isolation solutions in building acoustics. The striking red colour Resilmount isolation element soon became synonymous with quality acoustic performance and Studco continues to add new acoustic clips to the growing range of Resilmount sound isolation systems.

As Studco continued to grow into a global force, so too did the need for corporate responsibility and strategic direction and in late 2010, Gordon and Ben appointed an independent board of directors to support Studco’s operations in Australia.

Studco’s list of innovations in recent years is extensive. To name but a few: Slimceil in 2009, Slimwall and HEDAjamb in 2011, Ezy-Pelmet in 2012, StudcoBuildIT engineering solution in 2014 and Ezy-Jamb SRC in 2015. Studco continues its relentless pursuit of excellence in the field of innovation, quality and premium customer service to this very day.

Studco’s sustained growth trajectory meant scaled up production volumes in Australia would soon outgrow Studco’s present facilities and in 2014, Studco moved its Australian national operations centre to Croydon South in Victoria. In recent years, Studco has also established strategically located warehouse operations in Sydney, Perth and Brisbane to support our national distribution network throughout Australia.

Today, after 30 successful years the Studco brand and its dedicated team can be found all over the globe creating an international network for operations, logistics and customer service. The longevity of the Studco brand is a result of our determination to produce innovative building systems of superior quality and performance. Looking towards the future, this will continue to be the driving force for the organization.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Studco Building Systems (Rochester, NY) in January 2017.


    Interviewed twice, once on Skype from Australia, second time in Webster. Very clean facility, laid back interview, and dress casual. Everyone I spoke with seemed to love working there, and it seemed to run pretty smooth.
