History

Schaffer Corporation Limited – originally named Calsil Pty Ltd – was incorporated in April 1955 by Mr George Schaffer AM and a group of enthusiastic shareholders and supporters including Mr Albert Jobling. Calsil’s primary business was the production and sale of a new building material for Western Australia, sand-lime bricks. With incredible determination, energy and a “never say die” attitude, George Schaffer AM, together with his two children, Danielle Blain and John Schaffer, built and grew the company. George Schaffer AM retired from an executive role in 1987, however remained as Chairman until his passing in 1988. The company was subsequently renamed Schaffer Corporation Limited, in honour of its founder.

We are very proud of our long heritage, and we salute our founders, our shareholders and our employees for their wonderful support. It is interesting to note that today there still remain a number of our very first shareholders on our register – a testament to the longevity of this great company and its supporters. Companies are only as good as their people, and Schaffer Corporation is fortunate to have a close-knit group of employees, staff and directors all working in the best interest of our company, our shareholders and the community.
