Zip Heaters (Aust) Pty Ltd

About Us

Zip Industries is a privately owned Australian business founded by an Australian industrialist, Michael Crouch AO, who acquired a small Sydney manufacturer of kitchen heaters and bathroom heaters, Zip Heaters, in 1962.

Since the 1970s, Zip has focused mainly on manufacturing and marketing Australian-designed and Australian-made instant boiling water systems. These are now sold in more than 70 countries, where they are specified for use in kitchens in hospitals, universities, schools and buildings of every kind, as well as in homes.

From 1982 onwards, Zip distributors were appointed in Singapore, Taiwan, the Philippines and Thailand to cover South-East Asia. A distributor for Great Britain was engaged in 1987, and Zip appliances were introduced to Europe at trade shows in 1989 and 1991. A wholly owned subsidiary was formed in 1991 to handle UK distribution, and a distributor for Europe was appointed in 2002. A Zip subsidiary to handle distribution in New Zealand was established in 1996. A joint venture partner in South Africa handles African distribution.

Headquartered in Sydney, Zip has offices in Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Townsville. A network of more than 300 trained service technicians provides installation, maintenance and service nationwide.
