The Journey So Far
The path to mid-market success for Brisbane company Vuly Trampolines has moved so quickly that only its CEO Joe Andon could have foreseen it.
Back in 2007, Joe was an eager 19 year old and could see a better way to approach sales than the traditional “purchase a lot of stock and then try to sell it” approach. He also recognised an opportunity in the trampoline industry, which had remained stagnant for several decades.
So, taking pre-sales from his bedroom in his parents' house on Brisbane’s bayside, Joe started to develop a website that would facilitate a revolutionary trampoline company that would shake up the industry, and change the way we think about the humble backyard staple.
Six years later, Vuly Trampolines is now one of the world’s premier manufacturers and retailers of recreational trampolines, with a new office in the USA and a presence in the UK, Canada and the Middle East. Vuly prides itself on being a global leader in style and safety, and is recognised for it’s exceptional customer service.
“Our entire company philosophy is built on doing things differently,” Vuly CEO Joe Andon says. “Things don’t have to be the way they’ve always been.”
