Why this business was started
The business was started in 2007 to satisfy a discerning fireclay butler and belfast sink seeker for their kitchen or laundry. Belfast sinks at that stage were very hard to source in Australia and as such were not found in kitchen or bathroom retail stores.
The purpose of the business was to bring high quality brand new fireclay kitchen sinks to Australian consumers who knew what they wanted but could not source them. It was our objective to also offer prices that were less than retail stores that did offer them by supplying directly from our warehouses.
Today fireclay has seen a resurgence on two fronts as it is again a popular look for both modern and classic kitchens, as well as new styles being developed to evolve a classic look.
The reason of selling this business
Over the last 15 years our business has evolved being directly involved with the manufacturing of fireclay sinks as well as establishing like businesses in other country territories.
We believe that it is an appropriate time as we have a very deep infrastructure established in Australia by way of warehouses, and logistics partners along with many repeat customers to sell the Australian territory business to a suitable operator whom can grow organically in a growth market the existing business. With our focus shifting to being an ongoing partner whom will supply fireclay sinks to you as the Australian territory owner.
This will see the owner able to fully reposition as a supplier to a territory partner of an established business,, supplying both product and marketing support, as opposed to operating what is now two businesses congruently.
