***



The "Melalite" trademark was started
around the 1930's by Qeensland Plastics
in Violet St, Eagle Farm, Brisbane. It was taken over by Nylex which was eventually bought out by ACI Glass.
An employee of ACI Glass, upon his retirement,
saved the original dies and machinery from being
scrapped and kept the company going until
we acquired it in the mid 1990's.
By this time interest in Bakelite was all but gone
but the company survived by manufacturing
electrical components for electrical switchboards
and diesel trains which are products that we still do
today. Some of these are made from
Dough Moulding Compound (DMC)
which is a type of compressed fibreglass.

The BAKELITE"NORPLAS"
101 Fuseholders were also keeping things afloat
as thousands are still supplying street lights
and houses today in Queensland and
The South Pacific including New Guinea.

The Ornate 8 1/4" coolie shades in white have been
another line which has sold well since the 1930's and
continue to help flower growers as the shades
are
able to withstand high wattage globes without melting
when strung over fields or hung in green houses.
When we acquired the firm, galleries were being made only in white and it was only the fuseholders that
were being made in the traditional brown bakelite.
My son Murray and I have since then,
by experimenting and using traditional methods,
come up with the range we have today.

We are also very grateful to Mervin for snippets of history of the "MELALITE" brand and how
"packs of coloured shades were freighted to
hardware stores far and wide" Mervin,an employee
of the original firm for many years has at times
been our trouble shooter, helping us nut out some awkward problems on our old but well engineered machinery. Advice on methods and techniques
of making bakelite have been gratefully
accepted from this fine old craftsman.

some of the products are :-

galleries, lamp holders, bakelite ceiling roses ,
bakelite ceiling rose

ornate & plain coolie lightshades cord weight
