The History Of Contap
Contap Industries was established in 1994 as manufacturers’ agents servicing the plumbing industry in state of New South Wales in Australia, with some 12 product categories – of which one was Tapware & Bathroom accessories.
In 1998, Contap Industries made a giant move to produce its own tapware and bathroom accessories. Over the next two years, Contap Industries designed and manufactured some 9 ranges of tapware and 6 ranges of bathroom accessories. The product range covered different styles with matching bathroom accessories from up-market to standard budget lines for bathroom, kitchen and laundry.
Contap Industries also manufactures and supplies tap components to OEM tap manufacturers.
Contap manufacturing ability is in design – keeping up-to-date with global fashion and styling, functional and plumber-friendly, with latest technology and materials made to Australian Standards. The special care in quality control and service levels is the hallmark of the Contap Industries.
Contap will always focus on consumer requirements, and keep up with current designs and fashion styling.
In 1999 Contap Industries assisted Mamoli Roubinetteria S.p.A. in Italy with Australian Standards accreditation and Watermark Licence, which was issued in August 2000. Mamoli Roubinetteria S.p.A. is an accredited company by IQNet and CISQ/ICIM for ISO 9001 in Italy. It also holds many other licences of countries to which they export.
On June 2002 Mamoli appointed Contap Industries as the National Distributor of Mamoli products in Australia. This partnership strengthened Contap’s product range as well as extending the marketing and distribution arm to all states of Australia. Mamoli Roubinetteria S.p.A. is one of the leading Tap manufacturers in Europe. In 1932, Spartaco Mamoli was a pioneer in Italian business and design – a modern man known for his good taste and boundless enthusiasm, with a mind focused on the future.
In 2004, seventy two years later, the founder’s philosophy is still the cornerstone of the company, now an historic reference point for the entire field and for consumers in Italy and around the world. The company is known for its taste for innovation, style and research – and for being ahead of its time in giving the most to those who seek quality.
The founder’s enthusiasm and his typically Italian style and taste are still among the company’s major assets. Contap Industries is proud to be associated with Mamoli.
