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
Here’s the Auscrown story so far:
Our original company provided LPG appliances and kerosene to customers from our base in Hong Kong.
We began manufacturing a range of gas and electrical appliances under the Crown brand
We moved our head offices to Australia at the World Trade Centre, Melbourne and the brand “Auscrown” was born
Due to new emerging needs of our business we chose a site in Vermont, Melbourne to call home
With more growth and demand for a showroom we relocated to Bulleen in Melbourne, Victoria.
We’re proud to supply Gas and Electrical appliances to customers around the world.
