About Empak Homes

Empak Homes, a truly local family company

Empak Homes was founded in Millicent in 1945 trading as NS & EM Mitchell. From these humble beginnings of home offices, handwritten orders and manual calculations, the company has since moved its base to Mount Gambier where we continue to serve the Limestone Coast and Western Victoria.

Growing to employ 17 staff members, we are proud to call ourselves a ‘Third Generation Family Owned and Operated Company’ who specialise in both residential building and land estate developments. We have now developed four key housing estates with more on the horizon.

Empak Homes since 1945

EMPAK Homes would become a reality in the early 1980’s coinciding with Michael Mitchell taking up an administrative role with the company that would eventually see him assume the role of Managing Director. The mid 1980’s would see the commencement of the Conroe Heights Development which would lead to the company relocating to its current Mount Gambier base.

The early 2000’s would see both Clint and Heath Mitchell join the company as Construction Manager and Business Development Manager respectively. From humble beginnings Norman Mitchell has seen his company lead the local industry through over half a century of change, and he attributes the companies success to it’s ability to listen, understand and then adapt to become stronger as the result.

Managing Director Michael Mitchell’s design philosophies have seen EMPAK Homes design and construct some of the regions premier homes, ranging from traditional elegance to cutting edge modern style.

Perhaps EMPAK Homes greatest achievement is the Conroe Heights development, ultimately housing some 4,000 residents Norman Mitchell reflects “ Conroe Heights is a development Mount Gambier can be proud of”.

Valued cliental find that working with the experienced and professional staff allows them to be intimately involved in the design and construction of their new home from inception to completion, and this brings with it peace of mind in understanding each stage of the project.

With over 3100 homes completed EMPAK Homes have geared their operation over many years to become “The local builder to the Limestone Coast and Western District of Victoria” with residential developments in Mount Gambier, Millicent and Naracoorte we employ local tradespeople, contractors and suppliers to ensure the maximum benefit to the local economy.
