Since 1973 Grant Austin started providing injection moulded boxes for the opal industry, soon moving on to: Souvenir boxes for the Tourism industry, Cases & Trays for Gemstones, Presentation Boxes for Jewellery
Displays for Jewellery.
Vacuum Forming was soon introduced to compliment and add diversity to these core customer choices, after purchasing another business with great expertise and machinery. This allowed Grant Austin to expand into new industries, such as Aquaculture & Food.
Flock Coating then came online to further expand our ability to offer an ‘under-one-roof’ comprehensive manufacturing service. We can now start with an Idea; Design the tool; Make the tool; Mould the product; Flock Coat the product; Die Cut the shape; and finally Pack the finished item.
Food Containers and in-store food display products quickly became a logical progression in our design range. Fruit Separators, Tubs & Trays for supermarkets and retailers to protect & display their fresh fruit, vegetables and meats to maximise its saleability to their customers.
This has expanded to include bin tops & fit outs with a large variety of stepped display trays for all kinds of fresh produce, either loose items such as Bananas; punnets of Strawberries; meat trays for butcher shops, delicatessens and refrigeration units.
2015 saw Grant Austin move to our current larger premises in Kilkenny, South Australia incorporating our office, showroom & warehouse.
