“The Blockmakers in Western Australia is a manufacturer of many different kinds of garden landscaping and retaining wall blocks. In 2001, we were fortunate enough to be appointed as the licensee for Australia for Terraforce Retaining Wall Systems. This system has been a fantastic addition to our range. The product is very unique and very well designed, making it easy to sell. We have found Terraforce to be a very professional company to work with.”Tracey Foster, The Blockmakers, Australia

Terraforce association with the Middle East region began in 2005 when it was chosen for iconic palm island project at Jumeirah. Holger Rust, founder and member of Terraforce had to do his arduous task of shortlisting the local block manufacturer. After careful consideration, he selected Consent LLC as an exclusive manufacturer in the Middle East. Consent then went on to successfully manufacture and supply l.6million Terraforce L16 blocks and 4×4 step blocks to Palm Jumeirah, that now make up the lush gardens and steps to the beach from the many luxurious villas on the island.
Today, almost 14 years later, the Terraforce blocks have stood the test of time and are intact thereby contributing to the impeccable landscape of palm Jumeirah and Consent is still successful supplying the blocks to many prestigious projects in the UAE and neighbouring GCC countries. Consent has held a long-standing relationship with Terraforce and partnered through much of the success both entities have achieved.
We appreciate Holger Rust for creating a unique product that is different from the rest available in the marketplace. We are so impressed with the outcomes of his technical expertise and support.

Says Karin Johns, Marketing director, Terraforce: “Some licensees outsource and some start their own production facilities, we can definitely assist with that decision, it does however appear that the current trend for new licensees seems to be to partner with existing precast product companies, as this does reduce start-up costs.
We provide as much technical support to all our licensees in terms of Terrsafe (https://www.terraforce.com/terrasafe-design-services/), our professional design service, and a free Terraforce design software, Maxiwall Pro (http://www.maxiwall.com/maxiwall/index.php/), as well as various other supporting technical/design documents.
In terms of marketing we work closely with most of our licensee in supporting them with print material and digital strategies as much as possible. This depends totally on how much the licensees wishes to design their own material or use that provided by Terraforce, with some customisation.
Terraforce has a strong presence on Social Media:
LinkedIn: Terraforce LinkedIn
We also offer access to an extensive case study and image library that are used to support each licensee as needed. A monthly newsletter/case study is sent out by Terraforce, and most licensees send us relevant contact databases for us to add to our existing one so that our database can include these potential customers too.
Each licensee will be promoted on these platforms in their specific territory, and we will design a custom Facebook page for each new licensed manufacturer, as we have found this platform to be the most successful in terms of social media marketing. These will be promoted on a regular basis.”
An ongoing programme of development and performance tests will ensure access to new evaluation reports, case studies and innovative design software at all times. Opportunities for new licensees exist in many parts of the world.
