We have been manufacturing in this great country of ours for 20 years in May 2020. In May 2000, we started making Ironing Board Covers at home, and selling from the local markets. In 2001, we hired our first machinist, and not long after, we were looking for a new Sewroo HQ. We moved into a small factory in Harvest Court, Southport, Queensland. In 2002, we started doing casual leasing in shopping centres and hired our first sales person. We started doing 1 shopping centre at a time. It quickly grew to 6 to 7 a week. Leeanne then designed a peg bag that could be left outside, and it wasn’t long and they became very popular.
In 2009, we launched our products to the online world, with much success. We have people from all over the world purchase our products when they are here on holiday. We are always amazed at the trouble people go to, to hunt down our products. It makes us proud that we can still manufacture our products here in Southport, and not be affected by cheaper imports. We also sell our fantastic Ironing Board Covers to the hospitality industry. We supply some of the well known hotels like the Hilton, Sofitel and some of the Casinos around the country. We came up with the idea of embroidering the logo onto the ironing board cover. In 2013, we decided it was time to give our website a brand new, fresh look. All of our staff have been working at Sewroo Products for a long time, and we would like to thank everyone for making Sewroo HQ what it is today. We know our products are good quality and we know our products will be here for a long time. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers that support Australian Made.
Leeanne and Graham.
