Phoenix has been producing tapware, showers & accessories since 1989.
Every great company starts from humble beginnings. And ours is no different. The Phoenix story began in the 1980s in a small shed in Hastings, rural Victoria. Back then, the company was founded by Brian Wansborough, joined by two others, and a goat. Brian was also the founder of Gainsborough Hardware and no stranger to the building and hardware industry, and he had a vision and the talent to manufacture three-piece tapware and accessories of the highest quality. He also had a dream to create the best experience possible for customers with a strong focus on innovation and design. The founders worked hard to realise this vision, culminating in major milestones including inaugurating Phoenix’s in-house R&D department, introducing key senior management, and moving to bigger and better headquarters – five times over. Today, we’re celebrated as a pioneering company in Australia’s bathroom, kitchen, plumbing and manufacturing industries. Ours is a story worth telling.
