HELMAR AUSTRALIA is a family owned company founded in 1970. Our company started initially with two business interests which were importing giftware and chemical products.
A strange combination but essentially similar in that both involved marketing & distribution of a finished product.
In the early years the primary focus was on Helmar Pty Ltd, the giftware side of the business which grew to become one of the largest importer/wholesalers of Giftware in Australia with offices in Sydney (NSW) & Brisbane (QLD). In 1976 this business was sold to a public company looking to diversify it's operations but still remained under family management. Through this acquistion we now also had an office in Melbourne (Victoria). Helmar Chemical Products Pty Ltd continued along under it's own steam with little expansion in the product range but continued with growing demand for it's products. In 1988 the public company changed it's vision and sold or closed down all business's considered not associated with it's core business.
Starting off again
We then re-acquired and focused on Helmar Chemical Products which then became Helmar Sales Pty Ltd. Re-starting with just three products the product range was expanded to include automotive products ( a range which as been since discontinued), adhesives and arts & craft products. Over time it has expanded to over 50 different products with more products being introduced each year.
In 1992 Helmar Sales Pty Ltd changed it's name to Helmar Australia Pty Ltd to reflect the changes in the operation of the company from a primarily wholesale & distribution business to a manufacturing, marketing, distribution and export business.
Today our company operates a modern, well equipped manufacturing plant based in Riverstone, New South Wales, Australia. (In the outer north-west Sydney Metropolitan area)
