Owen Cripps started his business in 1972 from a small garage in Sydney’s Randwick, as a distributor of sticky-tape products for Sellotape.
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 they have successfully established a thriving business, earning a reputation for supplying quality packaging materials whilst offering reliability, efficiency and value for money.
The family run business expanded to warehouse premises in Alexandria in 1999, centrally located to Mascot and close to Sydney’s major road and motorway hub. This allowed Owen Cripps & Co to service all of the Sydney metro area with same day service if required and gave close proximity to transport for country and interstate customers.
While the business has expanded to cater for the needs of many diverse customers across the nation, the Cripps clan continue to provide a personal and friendly service to their clients.
