TRIM is the brainchild of Case Bunnig, a rectification builder in Queensland who saw the need for a better method of repairing loose and defective tiles. In the late 1980s, Case took note of the large number of replacement jobs involving tiles that had come loose but were otherwise, in all other senses, completely fine. At the time, the only accepted method of repair was to completely remove and replace affected tiles – a process that was exceptionally expensive, noisy, time-consuming, and messy!
Seeking a better solution, Case developed the idea of an injectable adhesive that would allow tiles to be rebonded rather than replaced. Following the creation and use of a number of injection apparatus, TRIM eventually acquired its ‘magic potion’ through the development of Injectabond – a liquid adhesive containing a special shrinkage agent, enabling it to pull tiles back into place. Injectabond would prove to be exceedingly effective (possessing a 25 year tested service life and fast-acting, allowing rebonded areas to take foot traffic within only a few hours of treatment.
Today, TRIM continues under the stewardship of Andrew and Patty Golle, the Daughter and Son in Law of TRIM’s creator Case Bunnig. Following the commencement of its first franchise operation in Townsville in 2005, TRIM’s services have spread across Queensland, New South Wales, and Tasmania – with trips to Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth carried out regularly. (Darwin and New Zealand on special occasions) Possessing a legacy of high-quality tile repair service and a track record of success stretching back 30 years, TRIM is still going strong.
