Vale Reginald K Whiteley

Vale Reginald K Whiteley
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Mr Reg Whiteley. He leaves his wife Moira, after 61 years of marriage, and their sons and families (Greg & Michelle, Andrew & Hanneke, Bruce and Rita) and the grandchildren (Mitchell, Jemima, Natasha, Niels, Jean).
Reg had a long and distinguished career, as a business founder, an innovator and an initiator of so many enduring organisations. Reg originally graduated as an industrial chemist from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and went on to work in a variety of positions, until moving to Sydney in 1955. He married Moira in 1957. After reaching managerial seniority he left a major Australian firm to join a small chemical blending business in 1971. After a short time as a consultant, Reg and Moira purchased the Australian General Disinfectant Company and it was renamed “Whiteley Chemicals” in 1976.

Whiteley Corporation Celebrates 85th Anniversary

Australia’s largest manufacturer of sterilants, disinfectants and healthcare cleaning technologies Whiteley Corporation is celebrating its 85th year of operation this month. Over the years Whiteley Corporation has been recognised for its world class products, patents and has received multiple awards.
Founded in 1933, as the Australian General Disinfectant Company (AGDC), the company supplied cleaning and hygiene products for the entertainment industry. The product range was extended over the years to include chemical products for building maintenance, and hard floor sealers, polishes and waxes. The original manufacturing site was located at Chippendale, in Sydney.
In 1971 Mr Reg Whiteley joined AGDC, in 1976 the company was renamed Whiteley Chemicals, and eventually became Whiteley Corporation in 2005. In 1982 Reg Whiteley began collaborating with Professor Yvonne Cossart and Dr Karen Vickery at the University of Sydney to research disinfection and viruses. This research led to the development of a multitude of products, including the world’s first wet biofilm remover – Matrix®.
