Sussex Taps was founded by Dutchman Nicolaas Johannes van Putten who arrived in Australia in 1960 with business ambitions and a talent for watchmaking. In the 1990s he diversified from jewellery to tap making.
Today Sussex Tapware is in the capable and caring hands of Nick’s family. For the new Sussex generation customisation and the expression of individual tastes are exciting motivators for continued innovation.
