About Us


Family owned and operated, SJR Patterns was started by John Read, in 1975, as a pattern marking workshop in the north west of Melbourne.

After years of producing patterns and moulds for the plastic packaging industry, customer demand lead SJR Patterns to expand into plastic manufacturing.

Machinery was all custom made to allow for a diversified size and range offering that could provide potential customers an affordable option for all their packaging needs.

SJR Patterns over the years has continued evolving with the times, enjoying the challenges of adapting to remain competitive in an ever changing market to provide solutions that meet their clients' needs.

Offering design and manufacturing of tooling our production area consists of thermo forming machines and injection moulding machines as well as an area for packing jobs.

SJR Patterns is 100% Australian owned and operated and proud to be supporting other Australian manufacturers in their ventures.
