For your gas and electrical appliance needs
Auscrown is a boutique supplier of gas and electric appliances to home cooks, restaurants and caterers, wholesalers and retailers in Australia and around the world.
Our story started in Hong Kong during the 1960s. It was Chinese New Year and, of course, all the shops were closed. But with no natural gas connection to homes, many people were relying on LPG bottles to cook their New Year’s meal.
Our founder and Managing Director Jason Chiu, opened up his shop and delivered last minute gas bottles on the back of his bicycle to his regular customers. Despite heavy rain, and even though it meant missing his own family’s celebrations, Jason continued his deliveries late into the night, carrying up to eight, 9 kg bottles on his bike!
Since those early days we’ve grown a fair bit and now we deliver gas and electrical appliances to customers all over the world.
But our values are still the same.
We still believe in dedication and treating our customers as we would our friends. We believe in doing whatever it takes to get the job done.
