OzKleen has taken home the Family Business prize at September’s Gold Coast Business Excellence awards for the second consecutive year. The award was announced at a luncheon presentation on Thursday, September 28 at Conrad Jupiters.
OzKleen had also previously won the manufacturing category and the overall prize at the 2003 Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards.
OzKleen is owned and operated by two families, the Herons and the Quinns, each with two generations working within the business.
In 2005, OzKleen completed the construction of a new $5 million production facility at Ormeau, representing the first phase of a two-stage expansion. The new 3,600 square metre floor premises has enabled OzKleen to increase its production capacity fourfold from 840,000 bottles per week to 3 million bottles per week, while also allowing it to add new products to its range. Plans are already underway for stage two, which will add a further 2,550 square-metres to the floor and further increase production capacity.
OzKleen became a global player after the launch of its flagship product, Shower Power, which has been the number-one selling product in Australian supermarkets in the household cleaner category since 1997.
The company has since gone on to produce other successful products, Shower Power Pine, Kitchen Power, Carpet Power, Flushies, Prewash Power, Grease Monkey and more recently Power Wipes.
All OzKleen products are free from caustic soda, chlorine, phosphates and ammonia.
