About Us

Reece is an Australian icon – we’ve been around for a century. We’re a big business that works hard to retain the little things that made us great from when we were a family owned, single supply truck in Melbourne’s East. We live by our values – we also hire by them and promote by them. We take our work seriously but not ourselves. You might know us as Australia's largest supplier of plumbing and bathroom products but that's just one side of us. We're a major public company with over 6,000 people, 615 locations, 10 business lines across ANZ and 2500+ people in our North American business. We’re not just plumbing either; we are a logistics, tech, and marketing house, we even have a creative agency, innovation centre, and insight hub. This broad skil- base helps us solve customer problems through insight and creativity. We’re growing both nationally and internationally and that’s where you come in!
