Working in the pet industry from the age of 12, Davy Kong saw the joy and importance the industry brought to the public in the form of companionship, relaxation, and fulfilment.

When Kong arrived in Australia in 1990, he knew he wanted to continue in the field.

From selling product out the back of his car to aquarium retailers, Kong, now CEO of Kong’s Australia, has seen Kong’s become one of the most recognisable pet companies in the market, but Kong still plans to achieve more.

“In the coming year, I would like to improve our position as a well-recognised full-line pet supplier for the industry that provides all the essentials for your pets. When you think of pet accessories, One Brands is your choice!”

Kong’s now produces a range of products under its ‘One Brands’ banner, designing and developing products for areas such as aquariums, reptiles, dogs, cats, small animals, birds, and ponds.

One Brands has been recognised as one of the nation’s leading aquarium and fish product producers through its brand Aqua One, which uses high quality materials put through rigorous product testing.

It is in the aquarium field, that Kong lists one of his proudest career moments.

“Producing the first Australian curved-glass aquarium and then watching this product quickly become the most popular aquarium of its time, has been one of my greatest achievements.”

Kong said he was incredibly honoured to be listed in Pet Industry News’ recent Game Changers list and says that his company always endeavour to do its best for the pet industry and to make it bigger and better.

“I hope to develop more useful pet products that make pet keeping easier while maintaining affordability, as well as inspiring every household to nurture a pet and encouraging responsible pet ownership.”
