After 145 years in business, Oppenheimer is now a modern and innovative organization. Oppenheimer has grown from an international family owned business lead by Harry Oppenheimer, to an Australian owned and managed private business.

From 1914, the Oppenheimer Casing Co., as it was known then, decided to combine old world tradition with new world technology. Under the leadership of Harry Oppenheimers son Seymour, the Oppenheimer Casing Co. was among the first to recognise the possibility of using regenerated cellulose for sausage and smoked meat casings. This single idea propelled Oppenheimer to a position of leadership in the world meat processing industry.

In the early 1980’s, Oppenheimer secured and grew the range and profile of the leading Swiss brand, Victorinox.

In the mid 1980’s, the then management team of Oppenheimer’s Australian based operations formed a bid to take control of the business. The team was lead by managing director Mr. Shah allowed the domestic operations to flourish and expand into a new area of opportunity and global growth.

In 1990, the business refocused on its core competency in delivery solutions to the meat and small goods market. With significant global alliances being formed with the likes of Danisco, Budenheim and Red Arrow reinforced with the long term partnership with Victorinox from Switzerland.

Today, positioned for increasing growth, Oppenheimer still holds its history as paramount in the future direction of the company. Under the current leadership team, Oppenheimer is now a thriving and technologically advanced company priding itself on the ability to respond to its client’s businesses by providing innovative and adaptive solutions which is backed by an unbeaten commitment to services exceeding their expectations.
