ennio's story began in the 1980's when they released an improved design of elastic netting launched as "String Cling".

This family owned business had built their success within the fashion industry and was revered within Australia as Mercuri Knitwear during the 1950's - 1980's. Its metamorphosis commenced through recognition of an opportunity in the meat packaging industry where they were able to utilised their knitting expertise to create elastic netting that provided solution to many challenges faced by the industry at the time.

Over the ensuing 30 years, the family launched a plethora of patented netting and casing products which addressed a gap in the Australian market and were known for their problem-solving and progressive attitude.
