The Warner family moved to Sydney in the early 1900’s. Ivy established a sewing business on King Street Newtown and her sons Alf and Les Warner established a Shoemaking business in the late 1940’s also on King Street Newtown. The business evolved and moved to the Princes Highway, St Peters in the early 1960’s.

In the early 1990’s Alf and his son Peter commenced manufacturing canvas awnings, blinds and shade structures at the St Peters factory.
This is when the name Ozsun was adopted. Ozsun took over the blind and awning retail business Smith Copeland & Co from Goodearl and Bailey in 2000. Goodearl and Bailey is now focused as a premium canvas fabric import and distribution business.
