celebratory anniversary dinner party for Masterton building hopes and dreams for 55 years


"Masterton celebrates 55 years at anniversary dinner"

It was a night to remember, a salute to 55 years of building homes and dreams in New South Wales at Masterton’s glittering anniversary dinner.

In an evening of entertainment, fine food and fun at The Warwick Hotel, Masterton celebrated the milestone with a gathering of family, friends, employees and stars.

Guests were greeted like celebrities, having their photos taken in front of the media wall before entering for drinks and live music from the all-staffed band, the Masterton Apprentices who ensured the night was filled with dancing and laughter.

Greeted by the MC for the evening, popular radio host, Ray Hadley, the 420 guests took their seats along with Jim Masterton the company’s founder and patriarch and his wife Marjorie.

Over the course of the evening, Masterton’s considerable achievements were toasted and celebrated with speeches from dignitaries including  David  Bare, the NSW Executive Director of the Housing Industry Association and Liverpool Major Wendy Waller. David Bare acknowledged that Masterton has won more HIA awards than any other builder in NSW, presenting Masterton with a congratulatory plaque for excellence, innovation and leadership. Mayor Waller credited the work Masterton has done in the area of Liverpool, helping the region to transform into a vibrant and multicultural community and remaining a huge part of the economy as the city emerges as an economic and cultural hub of Sydney.

‘I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended Masterton’s 55 year anniversary dinner,’ said Masterton’s CEO, David Masterton. ‘It meant a lot that everyone joined us on such a chilly week night, celebrating until late into the evening. We hope you had as amazing a night as we did.’

‘It’s been 55 years since Masterton began revolutionising project home building. That’s a long time to be recognised as industry leaders and we know we couldn’t have done it without the help of the people who attended the dinner,’ he said.

Masterton is a rare example of a NSW business that’s been capable of enduring half a century’s worth of change and innovation—a period during which demand for housing has dramatically increased, technology has exploded and global economics has impacted on every facet of daily business.

As an Australian and family owned business, Masterton employs hundreds of full time staff and contractors from all over NSW, has built over 55,000 of homes and can be credited with significantly boosting the NSW economy.

‘My parents, myself and our family were honoured by everyone who came to celebrate alongside us and we look forward to our 60th year event,’ David said.
