Michael Crouch AO acquired a small Sydney manufacturer of kitchen and bathroom heaters called Zip heaters in 1962. He saw potential in the small company and set about innovating and expanding operations.
During the 1960s Zip expanded its range of over-sink boiling water heaters catering to canteen, restaurant, factory and office kitchens. This didn?t just change the way we all do business, it changed the way we drink water. No more sitting by the kettle, no more waiting for a coffee.
