About Fibre Cement Solutions

Fibre Cement Solutions Ltd is a family business, owned by Rachel Osborn and Graeme Zimmerman. They specialise in fibre cement sheet, – ETERPAN®. Graeme has over 25 years’ experience in the construction industry having worked for Nuplex Industries and James Hardie. Both Graeme and Rachel are excited to be able to offer ETERPAN® to the New Zealand market, with distribution from Auckland and Christchurch.

ETERPAN® is manufactured using quality Flow On technology vs the traditional Hatschek method. Flow on technology offers a monolithic core with superior water, frost and delamination resistance.

There is no substitute for a quality product which is why they have aligned with the Etex Group who have been making this product since 1905. ETERPAN® has a Declare Label and is made using Portland Cement, mineral fillers, organic fibres and additives of which none are asbestos or asbestos based. ETERPAN® is Red List Free and is compliant with the Living Building Challenge.

ETERPAN® is a sheet product, not a system. It has many applications where it can be used such as cladding, backing board for stone or schist, flooring, and internal linings. ETERPAN® has been available in New Zealand for the last 25 years.

Fibre Cement Solutions Ltd was formed in November 2018 and since then has had exclusive distribution to the New Zealand market.

Our Vision

To be a leading supplier of fibre cement board in the New Zealand construction industry, by being customer focussed.

We will achieve this by supporting and listening to our clients requirements, working with integrity and providing a quality product.

Our Products


ETERPAN® is a versatile medium density fibre cement sheet that finds various applications such as external cladding, base for stone and brick slips, soffits, decks, internal linings, flooring, and rigid underlay. Produced using an innovative “Flow On” manufacturing process, ETERPAN® is then autoclaved at high temperatures and pressure to ensure exceptional strength and resistance against delamination.


ETERPAN®-Groove is a non combustible fibre cement board, made to replicate the look of traditional
tongue and groove panelling.
It has a continuous “V” join on the edge of the sheet allowing a seamless transition between sheets.


Simplisima™ is a new 6mm x 1200mm x 2400mm decorative fibre cement board made by Etex. The images are printed directly onto the board providing a definitive design and finish that gives warmth and livability of interior spaces.
