30 Years with P&S Michael

Propress Australia 30 Year Anniversary 2020

As we celebrate 30 years of Propress Steamers in Australia, we look back at those customers who supported us early on. In those days, clothes steamers were not common, fashion retailers used an iron and a board to press their garments for sale.


One of our earlier customers is P & S Michael, then based in Bankstown, with several stores through the Western Suburbs of Sydney. The company specializes in contemporary fashion apparel, shoes and accessories, with an Italian feel, for men and women. I quickly became a customer, as Sol and the team could easily accommodate my 6’6” frame with quality and stylish clothing that fitted me perfectly – albeit with a special order, and great value.


The company purchased several steamers in October 1992, and a few more over the years. Some of the steamers we supplied in the 1990s are still in daily operation!
