40 YEARS OF CONTINUING OPERATION
Arriving in Australia with only hand luggage and a few hundred dollars in their pocket, immigrants Roman and Mikhail overcame multiple hurdles to create a business that continues to defy the odds after more than 40 years of continuing operation.
From its humble beginnings where a lack of capital inspired ingenuity and creativity, the business has grown to become a recognised market leader in the souvenir and giftware industry still manufacturing most of its products in Australia.
Commencing as contract manufacturer “Moulding and Welding Productions” in February 1979, the founders used to go around Sydney looking for discarded bed frames which they would take apart, so they could use the angle irons to build their first assembly tables. At the start most of the machinery used in production was hand built by the founders, enabling them to create unique products not found in the market.
Our imported products and components are sourced applying fair trade principles. By working with economically disadvantaged producers in an ethical, transparent and fair manner, we are creating opportunities and better working conditions, helping build skills and capacity and promoting environmental sustainability.
