Melbourne Pressed Metal is one member of Australian Pressed Metal. Started by Justin Schipper, and mentored by Phil Cooymans, the founder of Australian Pressed Metal- they have over 60 years of experience in the walls and ceilings industry and construction industry. Over decades, Phil has bought all of the original dies or moulds from TW Ingham and Wunderlich and restored them, so that we are now able to offer a range of over 150 patterns- all original imperial measurements – of wall and ceiling panels, dado panels, cornices, mitres and cover strips.

This is why our products are perfect for heritage restoration or for repairing damaged panels in period homes.

Justin is also a qualified plasterer (www.easternrangesplastering.com.au), specialising in high end designs projects and ornamental cornices. This expertise, in conjunction with a passion for pressed metal is why Melbourne Pressed Metal can help complete anything from a bespoke project to a large commercial plan.

These photos show the before and after of a damaged pressed metal ceiling in Ghin Khao restaurant in Swanston Street, Melbourne. Justin managed to save some of the original ceiling, and replaced the damaged panels with another pattern. The two are demarcated by an ornamental plaster freize.
