Alvey closes its doors

Alvey Reels was one of the oldest family-owned fishing companies in Australia.

ALVEY Reels, an iconic Australian fishing tackle manufacturer, has just announced it will be closing down. Alvey was founded in Brisbane in 1920 and is one of the oldest family owned fishing companies in Australia.

In a comment on the Alvey Reels Australia Facebook Page, Bruce Alvey said:

“To our wonderful customers over many, many years. It is with great sadness I have to announce that Alvey Reels Australia will be closing down.

“Our manufacturing facility at Carole Park has served us well since 1978 but sales of our reels are now so low they can not generate the income required to keep the business going.

“Our loyal and skilled staff have kept the quality of our products very high and we are proud of this reputation as being the toughest reel on the market.

“So I would like to sincerely thank all our staff, many who are very long term employees for their support even now during this very sad time as we wind the business down.

“We still have substantial stocks to be distributed to retailers and we will endeavour to support warranties and spare parts for our products as long as we can.

“Thank you again for your support as an Alvey user, it is you that has kept us in business for the past 97 years.”

I know many Aussie anglers, including Fisho readers, will be saddened by this news and wish Bruce and the team all the best for the future.
