Graco Australia

Graco Australia is one of the world’s best known and most trusted juvenile product companies. Graco’s dedication and commitment to designing and manufacturing top-quality products—products that inspire parents and babies alike—remains, and continues on.

In 1942, Russell Gray and Robert Cone formed Graco Metal Products, in Philadelphia, PA. For 11 years, the firm fabricated machine and car parts for local manufacturers. In 1953, Gray left the firm, leaving Cone as sole owner. Cone decided to manufacture his own line of products. But what?

The answer appeared in the form of David Saint, an engineer, tinkerer, and stained glass artisan who worked for Graco. Saint, himself a father of 9, was inspired when an associate told him how his wife would soothe their tired and cranky baby while swinging in a backyard glider swing. Building from this idea, he went to the drawing board.

Today, Graco continues its tradition of innovation, with products like the imonitor™ Digital Baby Monitor and the compact folding Contempo™ Highchair. In 1998, Graco proudly acquired Century Car Seats, combining two of the most respected brand names in baby products, and leading to innovative products like the TurboBooster® SafeSeat™ (Step 3) youth booster car seat. Today, Graco is a Newell Rubbermaid™ company, with 1500 associates worldwide. While a half-century has brought many changes to Graco, the dedication and commitment to designing and manufacturing top-quality products—products that inspire parents and babies alike—remains, and continues on.
