Kincrome's Journey To The Top

Kincrome's Journey To The Top

With an international footprint across Australia and New Zealand, the Burgoine family has built Kincrome to become the brand of choice for professionals looking for the best quality tools around. While you’re here, we might as well give you a little catch-up on how this all kicked off and explain a little about why Australians across the country keep choosing Kincrome.
In the mid-seventies, the first Kincrome-branded products landed in Australia under the Cozens manufacturing agents. Late in the 1970s the Cozens manufacturing agents contracted Massay Holden to import and distribute Kincrome tools.

Approximately two years later, cash-flow problems caused Massey Holden to relinquish the agency. It was at that stage Patterson Cheney took on the agency and distribution of Kincrome tools alongside its large range of holden parts and accessories. In late 1986, Ron Burgoine negotiated with the Cozens manufacturing agents to purchase the Kincrome name outright for Australia. And that’s how it all started.

The name ‘Kincrome’ was acquired by Ron Burgoine in 1987 and since then, has grown into Australia’s leading supplier of tools and equipment. From humble beginnings, one container at a time, word of the reliable products and quality service spread, gaining Kincrome a reputation for excellence as the brand expanded across Australia. Over the years, Kincrome has continued
to evolve and grow, driven by the company’s key brand values around producing authentic Australian innovations professional trades rely on. These values have not only helped the company build strong relationships with its customers, but have also inspired the development of innovative and reliable tools that have become essential for many tradesmen and women across the country.

Day-to-day special service

Clearly, Kincrome believes in authenticity. That’s why, this article was written by someone who actually works at Kincrome. So let’s peel back the curtain a little and tell you what it’s really like working for a family-owned business like Kincrome. To this day, you would not think Ron Burgoine is 83 years old. He’s still running around the Kincrome head office and working with everyone as if it were day one. He knows everyone’s name, has a laugh with everyone from the finance team to the warehouse, and is still as driven as ever to turn Kincrome into the best possible brand it can be. With his two sons, Paul and Justin, at the helm, the company is made up of loyal, passionate individuals who consider the place to be like family, and it all comes from the Burgoines. Many people have decades under their belts, which is why the people here literally ‘bleed blue’. At the heart of the company is a focus on quality. We believe the tools you use every day should be reliable and built to last.

That’s why Kincrome takes great care in the design and manufacturing of its products, ensuring they meet the highest standards of durability and performance.
