2019 Test Lab Graduate

Who is Reece?

Reece is nothing without our people and our customers.

Not just plumbers, they’re designers, builders, tastemakers and protectors of our most vital resource, water. Our customers are our partners in business, and our family.

Reece Grads join a 100-year old company that grew from a single supply truck in Melbourne’s east, to Australia’s leading plumbing supplies company. Specialists beyond taps and baths, we’re design thinkers, coders, logistics specialists, brand experts and most importantly, people experts.

Keeping our finger on the pulse with market trends, every day we ask ourselves, what greatness did I achieve?

So today, we ask you, are you ready to help us achieve that greatness?
