DECO Australia has announced the acquisition of Sydney-based company Opening Roof Specialists. The acquisition will come into effect from 1 February 2024.

Established in 1987 by Alex Pataky, Opening Roof Specialists (previously Steelbond Pty Ltd) is a family owned and operated company based in Minto, NSW, specialising in the manufacture, fabrication, and installation of high-quality, aluminium opening roof systems. The company offers a unique outdoor roofing solution, with specific features such as dimmable downlights and a linear motor designed by Pataky himself.

The acquisition of Opening Roof Specialists by DECO Australia is a unique opportunity to expand DECO’s market presence said DECO Australia’s founder and director, Ross Doonan.

“Outdoor living is central to our Australian lifestyle and climate. The acquisition of Opening Roof Specialists will allow DECO to expand into a market that complements our wide range of existing aluminium building products, like DecoDeck, DecoBatten and DecoClad, that are already being used in this space.”

“As an Australian-owned family business ourselves, we are pleased we have the capability to expand and grow our company, as well as bring more high-quality architectural solutions to our customer base.”

Opening Roof Specialists founder Alex Pataky said he is excited about the future for Opening Roof Specialists under the direction and leadership of the wonderful team at DECO Australia.

"I truly believe in our product and the positive impact that we make in the lives of our customers. I’m very grateful to our customers over the past 36 years for trusting us to transform their homes into spaces that bring them so much joy." said Pataky.

Scott Reed has been appointed General Manager of Opening Roof Specialists, replacing retiring CEO and founder Alex Pataky. Reed brings over 30 years of industry experience, with previous positions at Steel-line, Stair Lock and Digga Australia.

“Opening Roof Specialists is a fantastic business, with a fantastic product. I am looking forward to joining the team and working alongside the DECO team to grow the business and get more opening roofs in Aussie backyards.” said Reed.
