AusCham is delighted to welcome Hipwood Family Company Pty Ltd as a new SME member in 2018/19.

******

Currently my company supplies North America with a range of Commercial Windshield Wiper Systems & Aftermarket Wiper Blades for the RV (Motorhome) Industry. I have a very strong market share in this industry (approximately 70%) and have the
reputation as being the best quality & service in this business.

For the last 15 years I have been manufacturing out of China and although our quality is highly regarded, our manufactured costs are starting to increase, making it difficult to retain acceptable profit margins. With the recent implementation of a 25% tariff by the US
Government, my margins have again been significantly reduced thus making it inevitable I look outside of China for a manufacturer of quality windshield wiper systems.
