About Us

Dahlsens is a diverse business that has operated successfully for over 140 years, a rarity in Australian or international business.

We invest in and work with our people, partners and communities to make a positive and sustainable contribution to the Australian building industry.

Dahlsens is the largest builder focused merchant in Victoria and NSW with a heavy presence in regional areas. We offer Whole of House supply and have 24 trade stores, ten truss manufacturing sites and one metal roofing centre.  

The Dahlsens Group (J C Dahlsen Pty Ltd) has grown to now consist of three subsidiaries: Dahlsens Building Centres, Cairns Hardware Company and Nortuss Group.

Dahlsens is very proud to be a leading supplier of building materials and manufactured truss and frames. Our customers range from decking specialists and landscapers, renovators and carpenters to residential home builders, and from multi-unit builders to large community estates throughout Australia.

We pride ourselves on having the range, expert team and scale to support builders and tradies of all sizes. At Dahlsens, our focus is on you, the customer, and meeting your unique building needs. Our aim is to add value to the building process by partnering with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to meet your needs, and exceed your expectations.

We make it easier for you to do business by offering you:
