Why O’Brien

Our Commitment

O’Brien Auto Shades is a proud South Australian company with a rich history dating back to 1948 when William “Bill” O’Brien established his business. Bill was the forerunner to the immense success the family has achieved so far, creating one of the most iconic vehicle accessories and its reputation as a quality manufacturer. The product range has grown over the years to accommodate new makes and models of vehicles. Whilst the family have heralded a new era of development today, they maintain pride in the quality and uniqueness of their products and the exceptional service they offer to customers. Three generations later, the O’Briens continue to skilfully hand craft each auto shade, using traditional methods and tooling. The family’s commitment to the business and products is strong, as is their passion for producing high quality custom made auto shades.


Into The Future

Today, O’Brien Auto Shades manufactures a large range of auto shades across many makes and models. We have the capacity to expand our product range to include newly released models and to meet customer needs and demands outside of our current selection. As a family business, O’Brien Auto Shades supplies auto shades to retail outlets and individual customers nationally and internationally.

Our product is a good fit when it comes to addressing the aspects of climate change and the environmental impact, as our auto shades reduce the reliance on air conditioning when cooling motor vehicles.
