The Owen Cripps Story

Owen Cripps started his business in 1972 from a small garage in Sydney’s Randwick, as a distributor of stick-tape products for Sellotape.

Almost 30 years later this family run business has expanded to a large warehouse/office in Alexandria, supplying packaging materials to some of Australia’s biggest companies.

When Owen died in 1984 the business was taken over by his widow, Mary, and her eldest son, Bevan. Tom, the youngest member of the Cripps’ family, joined the business after he completed his business studies in 1993 and the three have successfully established a thriving business, earning a reputation for reliability, efficiency and value for money.

The expansion to warehouse premises in Alexandria in 1999, centrally located to Mascot and close to Sydney’s major road and motorway hub, has allowed Owen Cripps & Co to service all of the Sydney metro area with same day service if required.

While the business has expanded to cater for the needs of more than 2000 diverse customers across the nation, the Cripps clan manage to provide a personal and friendly service to their clients.

“We are experienced enough to cater for the needs of our biggest clients but small enough to pay personal attention to individual detail, “ Bevan said.

“Some of our clients, Buckle and Company and Barnardos Australia , have been with us since my Dad started the business. And many others have been with us for more than 20 years.”
