The place has aesthetic value as a demonstration of a post war industrial complex.

Physical Description

A range of metal sheds arranged with 'saw tooth' roof line in a poor state of repair and rusted but still functioning. High level blocked window openings. Single storey side extension of same construction style. Single storey office building adjacent to factory of weatherboard and iron construction with verandah.


This place was constructed in c.1950 to accommodate the new business endeavour, "Industrial Extracts Ltd". The business was established to produce a wood extract, used mainly in the leather tanning industry. The factory closed in 1971 as it became uneconomic. The factory provided significant employment for the district and was symptomatic of the post World War Two development of Toodyay. The buildings are still used for industrial purposes.
