Our Story

 

Splosh started at the local markets with hand-made gifts in 1999. Today we are a leader and innovator in the home & giftware industry with international distribution and over 3,000 stockists in Australia and New Zealand.

Like our products, we are always changing and evolving but our vision has never changed:

 

"To create a product that gives and inspires – spreading optimism into the lives of everyday people, every day."

 

  • 2017

    The year commenced with a new trade fair stand at the Reed Sydney Gift Fair in February.

     
  • 2016

    We brought to market the “Change Box” with innovative designs and packaging. 

  • 2016

    We relocated to a new Head Office and Distribution Centre (4,400sqm) in Brisbane with double the space to accommodate our expanding team and product range.

    We released over 30 new product ranges throughout the year.

     
  • 2015

    The “KoKo” home fragrance brand was developed and brought to market.

    KoKo candles feature 100% soy wax sourced from the USA. They are triple fragranced with a spectacular fragrance throw. 

  • 2014

    Another very successful and innovative occasion product was developed and brought to market; “The Wish Jar”.

    International distribution continued to grow with Splosh products available in the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada and South Africa.

  • 2012

    We developed and brought to market the “Vintage Range”, which then trended in the market for the coming years. 

  • 2011

    As our number of stockists continued to grow, so did our administration and sales teams. We relocated to a larger warehouse (2,200sqm).  

  • 2010

    We developed and brought to market the “Block Word”, which then trended in the market for the coming years.

    We released nine new product ranges throughout the year. 

  • 2009

    We were granted the exclusive distribution rights to the “WoodWick” candle brand for Australian and New Zealand markets.

    We launched the WoodWick brand as an effectively merchandised cabinet concept, setting our stockists up for success.   

  • 2007

    The year started with a new logo and we developed the ‘home gift fun’ trademark.

    We had our first custom made trade fair stand built. 

  • 2005

    Our product range and designs continued to expand. We were releasing a few new ranges annually and our trade fair stands continued to grow to accommodate this. 

  • 2004

    Although the original bright look continued to be popular, we saw demand in the market for a natural, more sophisticated range. 

  • 2003

    The business continued to grow and we started the year by moving to a larger warehouse (1,000sqm). We hired our first administration team member. 

  • 2001

    We created and were the first to bring the “Signature Frame“ to market. Bright and fun colour continued to be our top selling product. 

  • 2001

    Wholesale demand continued to increase beyond the capacity of which we could hand make product components.

    We started to import components and assemble in Australia. To accommodate this transition, we moved to a larger warehouse (500sqm) and officially renamed the business “Splosh”.

  • 2000

    We took our first step into wholesale distribution at the February Gift Fair in Sydney. A successful trade fair meant later that year, Kim and Michael moved the business from their home garage to a warehouse (150sqm) on Brisbane’s Southside. 

  • 1999

    Founders, Kim and Michael, started making timber products in the garage of their Brisbane suburban home and selling them at the local Sunday markets.

    The business was formerly known as “Kendall Kreations”.
