Inventing the Neoprene­-X-Pansion Loc Strip Control Joint System, manufacturing dividing strips, self aligning mechanical flexible expansion joint covers, slip resistant safety stair tread nosings and mall bars.

Latham further expanded its product range to include dirt control entry mats, architectural landscape grids and grates, loading dock bumpers, tactile indicator studs, wall protection systems, specialty terrazzo and stone cleaners/sealers, exporting to USA, Britain, Europe, South East Asia, Asia, The Middle East and the Pacific Region.The name Latham is synonymous with quality.

At Latham's these sentiments were implemented long before this was a big issue and long before the majority of Green and Conservation Authorities came to prominence.

For over 30 years Latham's have had a stringent recycling/reuse program in place, which has been refined over the years, but the original principals still stand. Latham's have a waste minimisation process in place to minimise over run and waste and will continue to develop systems in line with best business practices.
