OGA was established in 1975 by Jim Searle, as an Australian agency representing the Japanese architectural glass manufacturers; Asahi Glass and Nippon Sheet Glass. Jim’s son, Neil, joined the company in 1976, and whilst assisting with the continued importation of flat glass he also initiated the importation of glass processing, glass handling and glass storage machinery. Neil bought the business outright in 1987.
OGA was a foundation member for both the Australian Glass & Glazing Association and Insulated Glass Manufacturer’s Alliance and Neil has served as Chairperson for both bodies.
Today, OGA is one of the largest suppliers of glass processing, glass handling and glass storage machinery within the Australia – New Zealand region.
