Abalone Aquasuits Pty. Ltd. has a history of more than 30 years. It was established by Imre Endre Barany (Jim) and his wife Eva Barany on the 2nd of February 1972 in Melbourne (Victoria). In 1985 the company moved from Victoria to one of Australia's most popular tourist destinations, the Gold Coast, in Queensland. The premises are located close to Surfers Paradise - in the industrial area of the suburb of Labrador.
During the 1970s Abalone Aquasuits Pty Ltd became well known for manufacturing professional dive suits. The company supplied not only professional abalone divers, but customers such as the Australian Special Air Services, the National Safety Council and Police Search & Rescue. The company however did not only fulfill the needs of professional divers, but the amateur market, as well as several Australian spear fishing clubs throughout the 80’s and 90’s.
Characteristic of the company’s business marketing, Abalone Aquasuits did not remain a manufacturer solely of dive suits. In response to the demands of the market in the late 80’s they changed their product range and started manufacturing neoprene promotional products.
