Fortis setup manufacturing 2008 with the intention to support local manufacturing and research and development, and began manufacturing adhesives, coatings and specialty chemicals to support the Australian market.
In 2010, Fortis expanded its range into structurally approved adhesives to support local finger jointing and beam lamination.
2016 saw Fortis move into a new manufacturing plant in Dandenong South to increase its manufacturing capability. We have started manufacturing Waterproofing membranes, Vapour barriers and high-performance Epoxy, PVA, Contact Adhesives and Rubber Adhesives.
In 2019, Fortis began manufacturing 22L aerosol canisters.
In 2021, Fortis acquired Rusted Solutions™ and integrated manufacturing in Melbourne. Rusted Solutions began in 2011 after the owners realised there was no Australian made safe rust removal products on the market. From a need to remove rust completely on newly acquired restoration projects the owners developed Rust Remover Soak.
