Sabco was founded in 1892 in Adelaide as the South Australian Brush Company. In 1979, the company established a garden products division, acquiring Melbourne Company Dawn Plastics. Then in 1993, Sabco merged with Tomlin Industries to form a new company, Sabco Australia, adding cleaning products, metal and plastic homewares, metal bins, mop buckets, council and general tidy bins to its portfolio.
In 2009 The Libman Company took full ownership of the Sabco business and Sabco entered the UK market in 2016 with an exclusive range of products in Homebase stores nationally.
BHETA chief operating officer Will Jones said, “Sabco has real heritage but equally a long history of ambitious international expansion. I look forward to welcoming the Sabco team to BHETA events and adding to our mutual networking potential.”
