You’ve met the 'front of house gals’, so now let us introduce you to the Snooza Blokes, they are the engine behind Snooza; running the factory, picking, packing, filling, welding & making sure everything is just so before it heads out the door, but perhaps even that is a little simplified. There is so much more they do - in short, they work bloody hard.

 

The Snooza Blokes

 

Mario

 

Mario

We’re a little sad to say our Operations Manager Mario is leaving us this month for greener pastures (literally) – he’s starting his very own Soccer Academy and we’re absolutely thrilled for him.  Mario has run the factory operations at Snooza for 10 years. Tireless and with endless energy we think he can do everything & anything, something he has proved time and time again as we throw deadlines, new products, factory sales and promotions at him all at once – and he makes sure it all happens on time, much to our delight and gratitude! We don’t hold it against him when he runs and hides as he sees us coming with that well known manic look in our eyes. We’ll miss the way he can design something for us on the fly – like our very own exhibition crate complete with hinged door, and the way a prototype magically appears for us to ooohhh and ahhh over.  Mario may be moving to the sidelines but he knows we are his biggest supporters and we’ll be cheering him as he goes on to kick new goals!

   
Seelan

 

Seelan

Seelan hails from Sri Lanka and is our QC (quality control) go-to man and 2IC (2nd in charge). Seelan can be found on the factory floor navigating the rows of fabric, covers and inners – being able to put his hand immediately on anything you need. He checks every single bed, cover, Cat Scratching Pole, Walking Bag, Laundry Bag, etc. before it makes its way to you so that your Snooza arrives just as it should – in perfect order! Seelan has his work cut out for him with identical triplet girls (yikes!), so you could say he’s right at home working alongside us gals!

   
Clesio

 

Clesio

Our resident singer and packer of goods, Clesio belts out songs (usually from the 80’s) as he works away in despatch. A mad footy fan, when he’s not barracking for Essendon and duelling with Jayde over their teams latest scores he’s doing his thing with tape gun in hand while juggling satchels & boxes ready for the postie to collect.

 

   
Nishan

 

Nishan

Nishan is our very own Man of Steel – literally! He is totally responsible for our steel area (not next month though – he’s going to be a Dad, so we’re building up stock madly in anticipation). He unloads the steel onto the forklift, cuts the steel, bends it, notches it & then welds it – phew that’s a lot of work!  Nishan makes our beds so well it’s not hard to see why we have a 100% Lifetime Guarantee. We’ve only ever had to replace 1 bed ….but the customer ran over it ….so Nishan’s still retained his brilliant reputation. Clesio has been known to sing songs from Flashdance while Nishan’s welding, but perhaps that’s just a coincidence as he listens to Gold 104…

 

   
 

 

Chris

Our Futon master! Chris can fill, sew, knot & cover Futons faster than you can say “do you want mini, original or mighty?” In addition to the Pet Futon Chris is also responsible for production and QC of our much-loved Multimats and when he’s not doing that he loves a spot of fishing, although we don’t know how successful he is as he is known to use chicken as bait! Weird right?

 

   
 

Bala

A big softy, Bala is our Snoozafill guru and cushion maker! He hits the fine balance of foam and fibre every time making sure the composition and weight of each bed are just right!  Bala also works in our glueing area assembling the foam components for your buddy’s Buddy Bed or your big dogs Big Dog Bed. Bala’s lunch is the envy of us all with delicious mysterious smells coming from his lunch box every day.

 

   
Nam

 

Nam

Longtime Snooza member and all-round nice guy, Nam has been with Snooza for 7 years. Our famous Aussie made (right here in Melbourne thank you) FleaprooferFleafree and Original raised dog beds are Nam’s domain. After Nishan does his thing with the steel frames it’s up to Nam to then cover the frames, but that’s not all he does… he uses high-frequency welding (impressive right?) to create the sleeves for our Fleafree Covers and he also stitches our Jute Original Covers closed - what a guy! 

 

   
 

 

Luke

Young Luke is one half of our Snooza Delivery Van Team.  A nicer, kinder guy you will not meet. We’re sure he is destined for a higher calling but we’ll hold onto him for as long as we can while he’s at Uni! When he’s not driving and delivering oodles of Snooza’s he’s probably bushwalking, being the perfect husband or taking care of his adorable rabbit Lola.

   
 

 

Issac

The other half of our dynamic driving duo, Issac is on the road delivering Snooza cheer to our much-loved retailers. The strong silent type with a dry sense of humour we hear he’s partial to the guitar but we haven’t heard him strum a tune as yet. We can always tell what day it isn’t as Issac likes to wear items of clothing stamped with days of the week – never on the correct day though so we’re sure he does this on purpose just to confuse everyone!
