About Us


Paton Formcrete Pty Limited is a partnership between Darren Paton and Matthew Dobson. Combined they bring a total of 40 years' experience in the Concrete Construction Industry.

Darren comes from a long family history within the Concrete Industry. His father, Ian, started Paton Concrete in the early 1970's and serviced the Northern Beaches and North Shore domestic market for 40 plus years.

Darren worked within the family business with Ian, then struck out on his own in 2006. After many years working together Darren and Matt then formed Shoreform in 2014.

Matt has spent his working life in the Concrete Construction Industry. He has worked with and managed concrete pumps, managed teams of concretors, and established his formwork expertise over an 18 year period.

This enables him to have the experience and ability to co-ordinate and build any domestic concrete structures from first edgeboard to completed product.

Matt and Darren have worked together for close to 20 years. First through a concretor/pump working relationship, then together in Paton Concrete and finally as a partnership in Shoreform since 2014.
