Office was opened in Port Moresby as the LBC Tile & Plaster Division which later became a full fledge branch office.

LBC saw a growing demand for structural steel work, hence the establishment of Lae Steel Fabricators.

The steel fabrication workshop was relocated to Marsh Street to produce large scale steel fabrication.

LBC acquired a large portion of machinery to set up a Glass and Aluminum Joinery Division and construction began on additional workshops in the Marsh and Montoro property.

To accommodate Lae Electrical Ltd. and the Plumbing Division of LBC, the Marsh & Montoro Street workshop was again extended.

LBC finally consolidated all its building operations and manufacturing facilities into one location. Expanded its workshop facilities to house the Building & Maintenance Division, the Construction Projects Division and the Construction Service Divisions into one area at the Marsh and Montoro Street locations.
