Meet the family behind the brand

Rodney Young

Director

In 1982, our father began a little corner shop called Sydney Tap Centre on 537 Elizabeth St, Surry Hills. He sold the original brands such as Caroma, Donson, Dorf, Fowler and Zucchetti. He still has the plumbing books which continue to help our customers retrofit new products to existing bathrooms. Our father is passionate about customer service, the bathroom industry, travelling to Europe to source new products and loves being involved in the business.

Vicki Young

Director and Chief Financial Officer

In 1982, our mother was a book keeper on the level above our father’s shop. From the day he began the Sydney Tap Centre, she came down stairs to manage the books and form a dynamic team. Her love of accounting and business is a great balancing act to our father. She is the reason why so many suppliers trust our business with their product and why so many customers trust our business with their money.

Dominic Young

Partner

In 2008, Dominic joined Sydney Tap & Bathroomware after completing his plumbing apprenticeship. Dominic is an industry leader, being sought after by suppliers, architects, designers and builders across Australia. He loves providing tailored solutions that bring his customers dreams to life. He thrives in the technical aspects of the product and is passionate about bringing inspirational products to the market.

Mitchell Young

Partner

In 2016, Mitchell joined Sydney Tap & Bathroomware after completing his carpentry apprenticeship and builder’s license. He has always been passionate about building, and is sought after due to his ability to work through complex building problems and foreshadow issues before they become a problem. Mitchell is passionate about building, and continues to explore new ways that products can be utilised to complete a customer’s dream bathroom.

Ryan Young

Partner

With a varied professional career in physiotherapy and federal government, Ryan has a unique set of skills. He has provided policy advice on programs that affect the health of the nation, co-ordinated the treatment of remote communities and now manages the digital platform of the business. He loves finding new ways to improve the customers digital journey and is passionate about reinvigorating manufacturing of bathroom products in Australia.

It is important to recognise our eldest brother Chris, who was the architect behind our first website and online shop. The first online shop was back in the day when we would walk the orders down to the post office, and write each address by hand. Although he is not in the business now, we are still grateful for the digital platform he started all those years ago.

There is over 110 years’ worth of bathroom industry experience in our family. Our ambition is to provide our customers with the best products, service and price from the team at Sydney Tap & Bathroomware.
