Following $6m investment.
Zip Water has invested $6 million in its home grown operations to double its local manufacturing capacity. Its largest ever investment coincides with its recent expansion into the United States and China, along with growing demand for the HydroTap.
Zip Water has been manufacturing its water systems in Sydney’s western suburbs since the company was founded by Michael Crouch in 1947.
Zip Water president, John Doumani believes the Condell Park home is pivotal to the company’s success. “It’s where we innovate and create our world-leading instant boiling, chilled and sparkling filtered water systems, which are sought out in over 75 countries around the world,” he said.
“It’s a source of great pride that no matter where in the world a Zip drinking water system is found, it was engineered and manufactured right here in Sydney’s western suburbs.
“The investment will not only help ensure that manufacturing remains in Condell Park for years to come but is upskilling our people, many of whom live locally, through the state-of-the-art technology and the training we are providing to employees.”
Zip Water president, John Doumani was joined by NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism for Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres and Member for East Hills, Wendy Lindsay, to cut the ribbon on the new manufacturing line.
NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres said the local investment from Zip Water will play an important role in ensuring manufacturing continues to thrive in western Sydney, providing job security and livelihood for the people it employs and the many local and Australian businesses that supply it.
“This is a wonderful example of our State’s potential to perform – and take the lead – on the world stage. It is also yet another significant step towards making western Sydney the country’s capital for advanced manufacturing.”
