Both businesses flourished domestically amongst the landscape of competitive global brands, whilst adding to their portfolios through acquisition and expansion.
In 2017, the Whittaker family sold the OZtrail business to Odyssey Private Equity which was followed with the acquisition of Companion Brands from the McLaughlan family to form Adventure Operations. The new organisation is leveraging its scale and is one of the largest Outdoor Leisure & Industrial businesses in the Oceania region with its sights set on continuing its global expansion.
