Backwell IXL Fund

Over the last 160 years, Backwell IXL Pty Ltd has grown from a blacksmiths shop in Geelong West to a diversified Australian manufacturer and distributor of domestic appliances, pressed and roll-formed metal products and metal castings.

Today, the Backwell IXL group manufactures in Geelong and distributes the IXL Tastic and Tastic Neo bathroom heat vent and light products, the IXL Fresco outdoor heat and light product, Cannon gas log fires and other IXL and Cannon branded domestic appliances.  It is also the Australian and New Zealand distributor for iRobot robotic vacuum cleaning products and Blueair air purifiers.

The Backwell IXL group also manufactures cable and pipe support systems, a broad range of metal castings and framing systems for large-scale solar power plants.

The Backwell family started the Backwell IXL Fund in support of the Foundation’s objectives to assist people in need in our community, with a specific focus on improving educational opportunities.
