Our History

Thomas Warburton Pty Ltd – Since 1858

When the man himself, Thomas Warburton arrived in Melbourne on New Year’s Day, 1853, he found little demand for his skills as a mechanical engineer. Luckily though, Warburton had set sail for Australia with his bride, Martha (Frost), an enterprising young woman who turned her hand to supplying the rising demand for tents among the inhabitants of growing Melbourne.​

Our Compliance And Code of Conduct

Mutual trust, reliability, honesty and straightforwardness

...both inwards and outwards, are the fundamental principles deeply ingrained in both Thomas Warburton’s and the Würth Group’s corporate culture. 


Our commitment to these values was first laid down in the Corporate Philosophy which was written in the 1970s by Prof. Dr. H. c. multi. Reinhold Würth, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Würth Group.


Our Corporate Responsibility

What will the future bring?

We do not have a precise answer to this question either.


Global issues such as climate change, sustainable development, the recent Covid pandemic, the scarcity of natural resources, increasingly short economic cycles and demographic change have an impact on markets and demand patterns, presenting new challenges to our business activities every day. 


As a customer, supplier, partner, employee or interested member of the public, you expect specific, legitimate measures and responses from us.
