Vision and Strategy

To build and grow Australia’s leading portfolio of consumer durable brands within the living, gifting and convenience sectors.

Since 2016 Marlin Brands has acquired and built a diversified platform of significant scale. Our four portfolio companies – Albi, Décor, Independence Studios and Pacific Optics – are the leaders in their respective markets. These companies control and licence a wide array of products that have strong customer and consumer recognition, and proven sell-through track records.

We work in partnership with the management teams in each of our portfolio businesses to accelerate organic growth and capture market share, realise operational efficiencies across the group, and expand into new channels and international markets.

When the right opportunity presents itself, we also look to amplify these businesses through the acquisition and integration of accretive, bolt-on opportunities that enable our businesses to expand their product offering and/or reach new customers in adjacent markets.

  • CONTINUE ORGANIC GROWTH
  • EXPAND GLOBAL & DIGITAL REACH
