About Us

Abbe is a leading Australian independent manufacturer and supplier of corrugated and carton board packaging, with retail display, specialty and industrial packaging and world class automation solutions. Proudly family owned and operated for over 30 years Abbe continues its passion for excellence, quality and customer service.

Our history

In 1991 Abbe was established by John & Julie O’Sullivan. Sons Anthony, Daniel and Chris O’Sullivan joined their father in the business in the following years, each starting from the ground up.
The family initially entered the corrugated space back in 1954 when John O’Sullivan’s father Jack opened Cardboard Containers Manufacturing Co.

The family tradition continued in 2007, when the O’Sullivan and Barnes families joined forces and the journey with Austcor Packaging (NSW) was born. Shared philosophies of WOW service and customer-first ethos, along with continued investment, enabled strong business growth.

The group was further enhanced in 2009 with the addition of Abbe Industrial Packaging, giving the collective business a unique point of difference; the ability to provide timber products to go hand in hand with our core offerings.

In 2012 Abbe relocated to Maffra St Coolaroo into a highly automated purposed designed site that enabled further expansion into new markets such as digital printing, die-cutters, specialty gluing, fanfold and automation.

An acquisition of ZacPac in NSW and Qld, combined with our growing regional presence in Sunraysia and the Griffith and Hunter regions created further expansion and access to new markets.

In 2017 Abbe recognised the growth of the e-commerce segment and became the official distributor of on-demand packaging solutions, Box On demand Australia and CMC Machinery.

We now share one name and move forward with a consolidated national offering, built on our combined history of excellence. Family is still at our core and we look to the future with shared values, commitment to industry excellence and a continued promise of exceptional customer care.
