As a global business and sustainable business, Ross Roof Group is very clear
doing whatâ€™s right for the New Zealand and the world. We take
responsibility for our actions â€“ environmentally, socially and
ethically. This means running our business in a sustainable way through
nurturing people and restoring our natural environment.
Our superior product is based on the principle of utilising only the best raw materials in the manufacture of our light weight roofing systems, offering a product on the world stage, second to none.
The base steel for Tilcor's roofing tiles originates from the
purest ironsand (blacksands) that has come from rock breakdown on the
Taranaki coast, some 2.5 million years ago. This ironsand is the key
ingredient in the production of high quality steel and is unique in the
world steel making. The ironsand is refined to produce one of the purest
forms of steel around the world, delivering us superior base components
for our tile manufacture.
New Zealand Steel Limited is the countryâ€™s sole
steel producer, operating a fully integrated steel mill at Glenbrook.
Using locally sourced ironsand, NZ Steel manufacture a range of flat
steel products for the building. The company has also received a â€œtickâ€
from Environmental Choice New Zealand!
Natural New Zealand stone granules are the foundation for long term durability and stability for color retention on all our textured roofs.
There are four main stone variants that singularly or combined, offer
over 20 natural roof colors. As all base stone granules used are
natural, formed over millions of years, they will retain this natural
pigment and coloration for centuries to come.
