In 2010, Angela a qualified Occupational Therapist of 10 years, left her profession and joined Trent on this epic journey and together, they took the leap and bought Bellbird.
Both had inherited a hard work ethos from their parents and demonstrated their strong desire to continue to bring quality and customer service to the Early Education market not just in Victoria but Australia wide by expanding Bellbird into a National company with an on-road sales team in South Australia and NSW.
Trent hand selects all the products in the Bellbird range, with an emphasis on quality to stand the test of a roomful of enthusiastic youngsters... It helps that Trent is a big kid at heart and is regularly seen jumping on or throwing a product around to put it through his own test! Our three children, having grown up with Bellbird always in their lives, have been product testers too and feature in many product photos.
The next 8 years were go, go, go, focused on expanding our catalogue and aligning our product range with the changing needs of the industry. We grow our range with more emphasis on sustainability, natural & ethically sourced products and Australia’s indigenous heritage.
In 2018 with thanks to our loyal customers, Bellbird had grown and changed enough in that time to allow us the opportunity to change our warehouse location from Dandenong South of 13 years to Lynbrook, a larger warehouse with natural light, highway frontage and a great showroom!
To have a showroom with our products on display inspires us and engages our team to connect with the resources and lift our level of customer service and remind us that we do our job to assist educators like yourself to inspire the next generation of learners who will shape our world. We would love to see you, so feel free to pop in.
During this period, we also expanded our team, extending into Qld and recruiting educators to become part of the Bellbird family to continue to educate us about the changing landscape of education and the resources that are needed to enthuse early minds.
