Australian Plant (Phoenix Foundry):

PBR's Australian partner Phoenix Foundry’s business history dates back to 1872 when it was known as the Uralla Foundry or the New England Brass and Iron-Lace Foundry. Although the Foundry’s main purpose at inception was the manufacture of iron lace for residential and commercial buildings, it has also been used as a motorcar showroom, timber mill and an iron infrastructure manufacturing plant.

Since 1983, however, Phoenix Foundry has been designing and producing cast bronze memorial and commemorative products. It is the oldest continuously operating foundry in Australia
