Zip cuts ribbon on $6m world best drinking water line

ZIP Water has cut the ribbon on a new manufacturing line at its home in Condell Park, where it has designed and manufactured its world-leading drinking water appliances since the days of black and white television.

Creating the world’s most advanced drinking water system, Zip Water taps are now in 70 per cent of Australian workplaces (filtered sparkling, boiling, chilled water on tap) and in over 75 countries around the world – there’s even one in Buckingham Palace!
The company has invested $6 million in its factory in Condell Park (western Sydney has been its home since 1947 after being founded by the late Michael Crouch), to develop a new line that will double its manufacturing capacity as it keeps pace with growing international demand.

It employs over 700 people worldwide, with 450 of those located in Australia. Over 300 of these are based in Condell Park, where products are manufactured to supply the world.
Zip hosted an event last week at its Condell Park factory to cut the ribbon on the new line, with State Mp for East Hills, Wendy Lindsay, Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres and Zip Water president John Doumani in attendance.
Mr Doumani says the manufacturing expansion marks an exciting milestone for the company.
“Our Condell Park home is pivotal to our success, it’s where we innovate and create our world-leading water systems,” he said.
“The investment will not only help ensure that manufacturing remains in Condell Park for years to come but is upskilling our staff, many of whom live locally, through the state-of-the-art technology and training.”
