Stop it.

Fit for a king

When it came to updating the deteriorating timber at Kings Pier Marina, the Tasmanian Ports Corporation (Tasports) decided that Replas’ recycled plastic fenders were the ideal choice.

Tasmania sets the pace

West Tamar Council in Tasmania is a huge supporter of recycled plastic products, purchasing various items from Replas, such as picnic settings and speed humps.
