History

AwardsandTrophies.com.au was established in 1992 under the name Western Suburbs Awards and Trophies.  The business started in a one car garage in the Brisbane suburb of Graceville and then moved to Oxley in 2001. 

Russell & Annette Colpoys purchased the business in September 2006. They, along with their dynamic and continuously growing team, have transformed it from a small retail outlet into Australia's largest trophy retailer. 

The business was re-branded as AwardsandTrophies.com.au in July 2007, coinciding with the launch of the industry's first fully e-commerce website.  After 3 years of rapid growth, the business moved its operations to Milton in July, 2009.

On January 11th 2011, Milton and the greater Brisbane area were inundated by flood water from the Brisbane River.  The showroom, production and warehouse level was submerged with 850mm of muddy river water, leaving only the upstairs offices dry.  Luckily most of the equipment and stock was relocated before the flood waters reached critical levels.  With the overwhelming help and generosity of staff, family, friends, neighbours, emergency services (even the army) and many, many welcome strangers, the business was rapidly repatriated to its pre-flood state. Less than 2.5 weeks after the flood the doors were 'open for business'. 

To accommodate continued growth, Awardsandtrophies.com.au moved into its current premises in Cordova Street, Milton in May 2017. With increased storage capacity and work spaces, our focus on continuous improvement and our commitment to be Australia's leading awards and trophy retailer is unwavering.
