MOST Australians know of Kreepy Krauly, whether they own a pool or not.
But not many would know that the second-generation family business still operates from Osborne Park, where it was established in 1976 by Terry Jackson.
He has handed the reins to his children Andrew Jackson and Sarah Davis, who continue to run all its operations from design to manufacturing in Osborne Park.
Kreepy Krauly has been recognised for its long-term commitment to the community, culture and economy by receiving Family Business Australia’s Hall of Fame Award this month.
Ms Davis said they were proud to win the prestigious business award.
“We have always believed Australia should have a strong innovation and manufacturing industry, which is why we proudly still manufacture locally,” she said.
The business was one of two inducted into the hall of fame and joins previous WA inductees Catalano’s Seafood, Leeuwin Estate and Betts.
