Are you visiting Tasmania and would like to know more about our business as an attraction in Devonport? Click Here.
Simon Martin Whips & Leathercraft was founded in April, 2004 by then 22 year old Simon. From what started out as humble beginnings in his parents garage in 2005, Simon then opened a retail/manufacturing outlet in Devonport, Tasmania, Australia and 3 years later employed Australia's only whipmaker apprentice.
Simon says "People were sick and tired of cheap overseas imports and I found customers were very happy to pay extra to buy quality Australian made products. If it wasn't for this we wouldn't be in business now. I'm thankful to all of my customers that keep coming back which allowed me to diversify the business into retail. The fact we stand 100% behind in whatever we do or sell has helped our business immensely."
Simon began the business focused on manufacturing his own brand of products but the retail store now includes a huge range of products, both imported and Australian made, but still focusing on quality. The store has become a popular tourist destination in Devonport for young and old.
